Four-star safety Karnell Hatcher remains wide open with regards to his college decision, but the hard-hitting South Florida athlete does know of one school for sure that he will definitely visit officially.
"I know for sure that I am going to visit LSU," Hatcher said. "I know LSU will definitely get one, but I don't really know for sure what other schools will get a visit."
Tigers assistant D.J. McCarthy is recruiting the 6-foot-2, 196-pound safety for LSU.
"He stays in touch," Hatcher said. "He's trying to get me to come up there for an unofficial visit. I have really been looking at LSU and the safety that they put in the NFL draft, LaRon Landry."
Miami (Fla.) also continues to recruit Hatcher, who is from Atlantic Community High School in Delray Beach, Fla.
"They've stayed in touch," Hatcher said. "They keep telling me that they want me to go there."
A pair of Southeastern Conference programs, Alabama and South Carolina, also are in hot pursuit of Hatcher.
"(Alabama) always stays in touch," Hatcher said. "My recruiter (Lance Thompson) texts me and tell me that the defensive back coach (Kirby Smart) loves me. They want me to take an unofficial visit up there this summer, but I don't know if I will be able to make it. It's a long way."
Gamecocks running backs coach Robert Gillespie remains in touch.
"Coach Gillespie is a very cool person," he said. "I am definitely interested in South Carolina."
Georgia stopped by Atlantic to check on Hatcher during the summer, but he hasn't heard much from the Bulldogs since the evaluation period ended.
Auburn, Minnesota and Wisconsin also have offered Hatcher.
"I talked with them during the spring, but I haven't heard much from them since."
Hatcher remains interested in all of the schools recruiting him.
"I'm still wide open," he said.
Hatcher is a four-star rated prospect and is the nation's No. 14 safety prospect.
