The 3-star recruit is rated as the No. 62 cornerback nationally in the Class of 2017 and the No. 83 player in the state of Florida. Mackey has received 14 reported scholarship offers, including offers from Arkansas, Iowa State and Cincinnati. Interestingly, the Boilermakers have not offered Mackey a scholarship yet, according to 247Sports.com.
The Badgers could afford to land another prospect in its secondary and already have one commitment from 3-star cornerback Madison Cone from Kernersville, N.C. The Badgers and Boilermakers will also battle with in-state suitors Florida Atlantic, Central Florida and South Florida for Mackey’s commitment.
