Next week, Wednesday or Thursday in Atlanta, WR Keveon Mullins of Memphis will make his college choice known. He has narrowed his decision to USC and Memphis and as of Wednesday night had not made up his mind.
Mullins camped at USC last week and left there stating the Gamecocks as his favorite. He said the Gamecocks remain his leader at this point. He’s had text messages this week from Will Muschamp and he expects to talk with receivers coach Bryan McClendon. He’s also hearing regularly from his Memphis recruiters. He admits to being pulled to both schools but for different reasons.
“It will be hard because I’ve been thinking about that a lot” Mullins said. “What’s pulling me towards South Carolina is once I got to South Carolina I did a one on one workout with Coach B-Mac. Coach Muschamp was out there watching. I just liked the way Coach B-Mac does things and the way he coaches. I liked the way he would put me thru the drill. He was different from other receiver coaches that’s been recruiting me. And Coach Muschamp, he’s a very good guy.”
Mullins can sum up the attraction to Memphis in two words.
“It’s home,” he said. “That’s all that is home and I’ve got love for Memphis.” Is being close to home important to him? “It is but it’s not at the same time.”
Mullins said he probably will know his decision by Tuesday and he plans to inform the schools in advance. He flies to Atlanta Wednesday and the people with Rivals, who are putting on the camp at the Mercedes-Benz Dome, will handle his announcement from there.
USC has one receiver committed for the 2019 class, Jamario Holley of Northwestern.
