This is from a South Carolina newspaper so they call South Carolina, "USC".
USC(e) team to beat for Wideman
By Phil Kornblut
DL Dexter Wideman (6-4 275) of Saluda has not been to any junior days or visited any schools this spring, according to his coach Doug Painter, because he's focusing on his academics.
And he has no visits planned right now though he's talked to LSU about a visit in 4-5 weeks.
Wideman has offers from USC, Clemson, Michigan, Florida and Ole Miss.
He's also hearing from Florida State and LSU. Both called this week. According to Painter, USC is out front for Wideman.
"His family would like him to go to Carolina," Painter said. "For one thing, it's closer and they can get there easy. He's pretty close to his grandmother so he doesn't want to go too far away. But he still has an interest (in other schools) because he's never been away to football games to see what goes on and check out other campuses."
Wideman has been to USC and Clemson for games, and he went to one day camps at Tennessee and Virginia Tech last year. "He's going to want to take the visits and see what's out there," Painter continued. "He's leaning towards the Gamecocks. He's not told me that, that's just my perception watching him around school."
>>>>Wideman is one of the two good DL in SoCar that both mentioned LSU early in their recruitment. Spurrier and Dabo are doing a much better job than any other past coaches when it comes to keeping these guys in SoCar.

58, thanks as always for your input. Would love to get this young man to campus, but the family pull is always hard to overcome, and we benefit from it at LSU with in-sate players, so I'm not complaining about it. But if he ever makes it to TS on a Saturday night, things could change.
Sounds like Spurrier is close to locking up a solid defensive lineman. No major surprise. The staff knows that for all those Carolina offers they hand out, they will still hit on a Sam Montgomery or Greg Gilmore every year or two. Interested to see which prospect from the East Coast ends up being the guy LSU grabs in this class.
