DE Lorenzo Mauldin (6-4 223) of Atlanta wants to sign with an SEC or ACC team, and with that in mind, he currently favors Kentucky slightly over USC and Georgia Tech.
"Kentucky said they are looking for one defensive end and I could start my first year," Mauldin said.
Mauldin has offers from USC, Kentucky, Troy, Samford, Marshall, South Alabama and Middle Tennessee. And he feels Georgia Tech is close to offering. He has visited Tech and is going to Troy Friday. He also plans to visit USC and Kentucky.
Mauldin talked to USC recruiter Lorenzo Ward last month and plans to call him this week.
