DL Leon Mackey of Hinds JC, MS did not take an official visit to Mississippi State last weekend as he had planned. Instead, that visit has been moved to January 7th according to Hinds assistant coach Dwike Wilson.
Mackey has taken official visits to USC, Texas Tech, Alabama and Tennessee. Wilson said all the schools remain involved. "He's keeping it close to the belt," Wilson said. "The decision will come the second week in January. He wants to be open minded. He talks to all the coaches. All five schools still in it."
Mackey is at his home in Delaware for the holidays and will return to Hinds after his official visit to Starkville. He will consult with his coaches at that time, and his brother will also play a major role in his decision.
