RB Donald Russell (5-10 206) of Palm Beach Gardens, FL picked up a recent offer from Kentucky giving him six official offers. The others are USC, Pittsburgh, South Florida, Wisconsin and Southern Miss. He's also getting interest from Western Michigan. Russell has not scheduled any official visits but he said Tuesday night he will take one to USC after this season.
Russell said he's in regular contact with Gamecock recruiter Robert Gillespie. "He said they are very interested in me because of my down hill running, the way I read stuff, and how I can catch out of the backfield," Russell said adding he's also looking strongly at South Florida. He does not have a leader.
Russell is close friends with USC basketball commitment Ramon Galloway who attends the same school.
