Marlon Character, who’s committed to South Carolina, has scheduled his official visits for the fall.  
The 4-star safety from Grady High School will take trips to Louisville, South Carolina, Auburn, Virginia Tech and Miami, he confirmed to the AJC on Monday.
Character, the No. 13 safety in the country, committed to the Gamecocks back in July during a weekend visit.

"I was leaning towards Auburn when I went up," Character told the AJC back in July. "Well, it was kind of 50-50. Once I got up to South Carolina, though, it just felt right. Just talking to coach Ward – we had a pretty long conversation, probably about a 30-minute conversation just about me. It was the most different conversation I've had with any coach that I've been recruited by. That went well."

The 6-foot, 170-pound safety holds 20 offers.
