North Augusta WR to visit South Carolina

North Augusta (SC) speedy WR Marcus Thurmond (6-2, 175) said he will be making an unofficial visit to watch South Carolina play on Saturday. Thurmond saw the Gamecocks win at UGA last weekend.

"That was one of the best atmospheres I've ever seen in college football," Thurmond said. "Those South Carolina fans, they were really loud at the end when the game was over. It was an exciting game to see."

Thurmond said UGA WR coach John Eason informed him that he planned to scout the speedster in person later this season. Before the game, Thurmond talked with Summerville QB Reid McCollum, who has committed to South Carolina.

"Reid kept telling me that I need to 'think about South Carolina,'" Thurmond said. "He said he would love to throw to me in college. We got to be friends at some of the camps this past summer. He's a great guy. He's going to be a great quarterback in college."

Thurmond has five offers, led by Maryland and Middle Tennessee State.

He has caught two TD passes in three games for North Augusta. is your source for: College Football | Football Recruiting | College Basketball | Basketball Recruiting | College Baseball | High School | College Merchandise
