Scott said he talked and gave advice to Victor Hampton, who played at Scott’s alma mater Darlington and is being red-shirted this year at USC.
Newton is doing the same with fellow Marlboro County standout Lateek Townsend, who has the Gamecocks among his top five schools to attend. Townsend said he is going to wait until next month’s U.S. Army All-American Game to decide.
“I would love to see him go to South Carolina,” Newton said of Townsend. “It’s a tough decision with both USC and Clemson wanting him, but he needs to get where he thinks is the best place for him.”
