Mississippi State Lands Guard
According to the Sun-Sentinel, Coral Springs (FL) Douglas point guard Steven Cowherd committed to Mississippi State.
Cowherd ran the point for Eric Alston's Coast To Coast AAU program this summer. He had his coming out party at the AAU Nationals when he put up some impressive numbers in a string of games. He also attended the 2001 Nike All-American Camp.
Mississippi State had been chasing point guards during the period this year. They were in the hunt for Dedrick Finn prior to his commitment to Xavier and once that happened Rick Stansbury moved quickly to lock down Cowherd. Mission accomplished.
