Kentucky offers MGCCC OL Martinas Rankins

Mississippi Gulf Coast offensive lineman Martinas Rankins has a scholarship offer from Kentucky.

The Big 3- Ole miss, Mississippi State and Southern Miss- all have offered Rankins, along with Louisville, UAB, Missouri and Memphis.

"I think they like my athleticism,'' he told "They like me as a person and they like my footwork. They like the way I move and my physicality. They said the starting left tackle this year is going to be a senior so they're going to need somebody to come in right away the next year."

Rankin stands at 6-foot-4 and weighs 295 also has the Rebels high on his list. He'll graduate in December and sign.

"I'm planning on taking an unofficial to Ole Miss coming up soon," Rankins said. "They're recruiting me pretty hard. I have some good interest in them but I have good interest in Kentucky at the same time. I don't mind going out of state. (Ole Miss) being in-state doesn't mean I'm going to go there or anything. Right now everything's kind of even because all of a sudden a lot of big schools are starting to come in."
