Former USC signee DL Leon Mackey (6-6 260) of Hinds JC, MS is still interested in the Gamecocks but is not a lock to resign in December.
Mackey signed with USC out of Hargrave Prep, VA in 2009 but did not qualify. He played last season at Hinds and earned first team all state honors.
Now, several other schools are pulling at Mackey including Alabama, Auburn, Baylor, Ole Miss, LSU, Texas Tech and Mississippi State. Mackey says all have offered. "I'm not really worrying about recruiting right now," Mackey said. "I'm just getting in the best shape I can so I can dominate this season. I talked to (USC recruiter) coach Ward a couple of days ago. He's staying interested in me and I'm still interested in them."
Never miss a local story.
Mackey said he definitely will visit USC again in the fall but has no other visits planned. He begins summer school at Hinds June 1st and is on track to graduate in December.
