Trent Mackey has heard the talk of his lack of height from college coaches on more then one occasion, but the 5-91/2, 218 pound LB just wants an opportunity to play on the next level.
"I just want the opportunity to play at the next level. Some coaches have mentioned my height, but I have the speed and athletic ability to play at the next level if given the chance."
The Cajun coaching staff believes that the speedy Mackey fits in their system at the WLB position. Mackey has also received offers from Tulane and McNeese State.
"They showed me around the campus, the new indoor practice facility and weight room. We also talked about some of the programs that they will be playing in the future on their schedule, like Tennessee and Nebraska. I wouldn't mind playing locally so that my parents could see me play; they haven't missed any of my games since I started playing at seven years old."
Mackey has just finish camp at LSU Wednesday, and plans on attending UL's prospect camp July 8th.
Trent Mackey has already taken the ACT, and has just recently taken it again.
"My composite score was a 20 on my first ACT, but I've just recently taken the test again."
There is no doubt that as the year goes on, Mackey will get his chance at the next level.
