LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -– Five-star defensive end Carl Lawson (Alpharetta, Ga./Milton) has been committed to Auburn since March. After Gene Chizik was let go and replaced by former Tigers offensive coordinator Guz Malzahn earlier this month, schools lined up to try and get Lawson on campus. If he had his way he would oblige as many of his suitors as possible.

“I would like to visit Clemson, Tennessee, FSU, UCLA, USC, UNC and Ole Miss, but realistically the five I visit might be Clemson, Tennessee, Ole Miss, UNC and USC,” Lawson said.

After sending out his highlight tape to schools, Class of 2015 running back Jacques Patrick (Orlando, Fla./Timber Creek) had been waiting to hear back from USC for quite some time.

Patrick heard back from the Trojans on Monday night, receiving a verbal offer from assistant coach Tee Martin.

"USC is one of the offers I really wanted," Patrick said. "To finally get it is a blessing. I've been patient and been trying to get in touch with them. They reviewed my film and said they'd love to have me. They believe I can dominate the Pac-12, and they think I can play right away. They run a pro-style offense. My style is downhill running, and that's what they run. That's a plus for sure."

After rushing for 1,300 yards and 17 touchdowns last fall, running back Alvin Kamara (Norcross, Ga./Norcross) was invited to participate in the weeklong Rising Seniors program in December in Atlanta. After impressing in practice all week at receiver, Kamara shined during the Georgia Junior Bowl, making a game-high eight catches for 117 yards.

His versatility and explosiveness have made the 5-foot-10, 190-pound Kamara one of the most coveted running backs in the Southeast, with double-digit offers from programs including Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia and USC. The Georgia Bulldogs were lucky enough to get Kamara on campus last weekend, and although they invited him to return Saturday for VID Day, he had made plans weeks ago to be elsewhere this weekend.

Then things changed.
