OL Cory Helms of Alpharetta, GA, who is transferring after two seasons as a starter at Wake Forest, was offered Wednesday by Mississippi State. That's the fourth offer for Helms since he announced plans to leave the Demon Deacons.
Helms has scheduled an official visit to Mississippi State for this Friday and Saturday. From there he will go straight to Texas A&M for a Sunday-Monday visit.
Helms also has official visits set with USC for January 23rd and Penn State for January 30th. He is not sure if he will take a fifth visit.
Helms said he's in regular contact with Gamecock offensive line coach Shawn Elliott. "We keep in touch pretty much every day. He wants me up there and he's recruiting me pretty hard right now."
Helms said Elliott plans to visit him next week after he returns from Texas A&M and before his visit to USC.
