Class of 2016 Dillon (S.C.) quarterback Avery McCall has grown two inches over the last year and he's hoping that his offer list will continue to grow as well. The 6-foot, 191-pound signal-caller already claims offers from Tennessee, North Carolina and South Carolina, with the Gamecocks really turning up the heat as of late.
"South Carolina is talking to me the most," McCall said. "They want me to make sure I keep my grades up and approach things education first and everything will work out."
McCall is a classic dual-threat quarterback, the type of player that South Carolina doesn't typically recruit at the position. However, he said the Gamecocks coaches are enamored with his skills as a passer first and a runner second.
"They want a guy who can pass first and run second," he said. "I can run too but they know I can do damage with my arm first and that's why they like me."
Clemson recently joined McCall's offer list but his family ties to South Carolina give him a clear allegiance at this point in the process.
"Both teams have a good tradition and that's a big rivalry so it's good to be hearing from both," he said. "But my mom went to South Carolina so I've always been a Gamecock."
So far this calendar year McCall has shied away from taking visits, he's planning on changing that once the school year ends.
"I'm going to try to visit Clemson and Florida State sometime soon," he said. "I really want to see Miami as well."
McCall said he's hoping to get on the 'Noles radar, mainly because of their recent tradition of producing top-notch quarterbacks.
"Florida State has some great quarterbacks and they always have," he said. "To have a chance to be the next in that long line is something that would intrigue me."
