USC is keeping up the hot pursuit of hot recruit OL Jakiah Leftwich (6-6 302) of Atlanta. Leftwich visited for the Florida game, and he was back for a junior day in January. And he says every morning he’s greeted on the phone by a text message from Will Muschamp or offensive line coach Eric Wolford. On some days, both hit him up.
“Their message is they want me there, they like me and they want me there, and they like my film,” Leftwich said. “I’m thinking about coming in for their spring game in April. I really love the Gamecocks right now. They are high up there.”
Leftwich has had USC and Georgia Tech high up on his list. He said Mississippi State, Vanderbilt and Tennessee also are recruiting him hard at this point, and they have offered. Indiana and Florida State also are factors in his recruiting.
Leftwich said he will visit Vanderbilt March 27th and Mississippi State the first week in April. He will take some official visits this summer and one will be to USC. His plan is to make his decision before his season and sign early.
