USC in the running for big defensive lineman

DL Kevin McReynolds (6-3 300) of Washington, DC plans to take his final official visit to USC in late January. McReynolds visited UCLA last weekend and will go to Syracuse this weekend. He is scheduled to visit Oregon January 14th and Arkansas January 21st. The USC visit will take place the following week during the mid week.

Jay Graham has been recruiting McReynolds for USC and has gotten his attention. "They are doing a lot of good things," he said. McReynolds said he talked with Graham Tuesday night.

He's wide open with his decision right now.

McReynolds can play nosetackle or the three technique. He missed five games this season with a high ankle sprain.
