Former USC signee DL Leon Mackey (6-6 260) of Hinds JC, MS remains interested in the Gamecocks but does not consider himself committed at this point.
"I haven't committed to anybody yet," Mackey said. "I'm still interested in South Carolina. South Carolina is a favorite. I have a good relationship with coach Ward. I talk to him frequently, about every week. But I also have a good relationship with the coach at Texas Tech. I plan to visit some schools. I'll definitely visit South Carolina."
Mackey said he has offers from USC, Mississippi State and Texas Tech.
He earned first team all state honors last season after totaling 50 tackles with 11 sacks. He said he's on track to graduate in December.
