OL Keith Lumpkin (6-9 285) of Jersey City, NJ has narrowed his list to ten with USC included. The other schools are North Carolina, Rutgers,Pitt, Georgia, Illinois, South Florida, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Florida. Florida is the only school on his list not yet to offer.
"I may have to wait until after the season to take my officials because coach says he doesn't want us doing it during football," said Lumpkin. "I could take one during the bye week but I really don't know yet."
Lumpkin says he will take all five and has not decided which schools he will visit but USC has a good shot. "I liked South Carolina when I visited," he said. "I liked the town and the whole atmosphere around the team." He says distance to home will not be a factor in his decision.
Lumpkin says he does not have a leader.
