Why did you commit to State?
"First of all, I liked the environment up there (at Mississippi State). Plus, I can go home everyday. I know I can go home from Ole Miss, but I can come from Mississippi State everyday. I know my way up there well because I have been up there so many times. And I like the coaching staff. I went there this summer for a camp. That was what really made me like them."
How did Coach Croom figure into your commitment?
"When I went up there this summer, he talked to me a couple of times. I thought he could be like a father figure to me."
What schools came in second and third for your commitment?
"Ole Miss and USM."
The commitment gives Mississippi State eight commitments (see list below).
