Former USC signee DL Leon Mackey (6-6 270) of Hinds JC, MS will make another official visit to USC this weekend. Mackey signed with the Gamecocks in February of 2009 out of Hargrave Prep, VA but did not qualify.
He was first team all state both seasons at Hinds. This season he had 47 tackles with 15.5 for loss and 4.5 sacks. He played defensive tackle and defensive end.
Mackey still has some work to do academically but the major schools, like USC remain interested. Texas Tech, where his former prep school coach is an assistant, has also been showing strong interest.
