Preston Mixon is a big time offensive lineman who now holds 16 offers. The talented tackle from Montgomery, AL, just recently picked up an offer to Southern Miss.
Though he already held 15 offers, the one to Southern Miss really stood out to him.
"I'm so pumped about the offer to Southern Miss because I know their program and a few of my teammates already have offers from there," he said.
"Also, Coach Wright seems so cool and just a really fun coach to be around. I'm excited about it."
Mixon said his summer might be slowed a bit because of an injury he sustained at the end of the spring.
"I sprained my MCL at the end of the spring," he said.
"My summer has been great I've been working out and taking things slow. My recovery has been slow but effective. I'll be attending some camps but I won't be participating."
He also said he plans on taking a visit to Southern Miss, but he's not sure when.
"I've been talking to coach about a visit, I just have to set one up," he said.
