DB Jeremiah Denson (6-0 178) of Hialeah, FL committed to Kentucky early in the season following an official visit with the Wildcats. He remains committed but is now being pulled by others including USC.
"They (USC) offered about two weeks ago and are coming at me strong," Denson said. "I'm real interested in them. They had two defensive backs decommit and coach Brown came back and offered me. My interest is real good."
Denson said he last talked with Brown before USC's bowl game. He's never visited USC and plans to take an official visit, possibly January 16th. He has seen the Gamecocks on television and has an idea of how Brown and Lorenzo Ward deploy the secondary.
"They like to play five DBs and there's a good chance for me to get on the field as a freshman," he said.
Never miss a local story.
Denson also has an official visit to Louisville set for January 30th. He was looking at Arkansas but that was before his recruiter Randy Shannon left for Florida. "With coach Shannon leaving, I'm just with Kentucky right now. I have to go back to the drawing board."
Kentucky has been on Denson since offering in the spring and has remained in regular contact. "They hit me up every day and they really want me," he said. "If I go on a visit (to USC) and they wow me, it (commitment flip) is possible. I have to go thru the process, go on a visit and get a feel for the coaches and everything."
Denson said he'll make his final decision around Signing Day.
Denson said he's considered a lock down corner and is good in press coverage. He had 7 interceptions his last two seasons.
