Morrow Excited About Bulldog Future

Wide receiver Joe Morrow committed to Mississippi State over the course of a weekend that brought six verbal pledges to Coach Dan Mullen and his staff. The talented wide out was a key target for the Bulldogs and his commitment was certainly a welcomed event for those who cheer for the Maroon and White. Joe is following his future teammates closely, while finishing up his prep career on a high note

Morrow and his fellow Greyhounds enjoyed an off week last week and will take on D'iberville this Friday night.

"We watched them today," said Joe. "Some of us went over to Biloxi and watched them too.

"They look pretty good. Greyson Chambless is a good player and they have a good running back. We are going to have to play well."

The Greyhounds come into the contest well rested and Morrow believes well adjusted.

"Practice went well last week," said Joe. "We got after it and we cleaned up some mistakes we made against Moss Point.

"We had the Seniors versus the Juniors and Sophomores game. It was 0-0 at half time. I had two interceptions I ran back for touchdowns in the second half. We won 20-8.

"It was a lot of fun. We play it every year and the seniors win every year. I was glad we were able to keep that going."

The four star wide out is planning to go see the team of his future, Mississippi State, in action very soon.

He has been watching them on television the past two weeks with more than a casual interest in the outcome.

"I am thinking about going to the Georgia game," said Joe. "I have been watching them on TV. I saw them on TV against Auburn.

"I wish I would have been out there. I would have made that catch in the end. That crushed me. I just hated it so bad."

As a pass catcher, Joe understands that snatching the pigskin is not always the easiest undertaking.

"Chad Bumphis had a great game the first week and he didn't make some plays he normally makes last week," said Morrow. "Sometimes that's how football goes. You have a great game one week and then next week it's different. You just have to keep working hard to get better for the next game."

Joe believes the Bulldogs' wide receiving corp has a bright future as well as the rest of Dan Mullen's team.

"I feel like they are going to have a good season," said Morrow. "After the next few games you'll be able to kind of tell how things are going to go.

"When I get up there we are going to have a great season. I have been getting numbers from some of the other players and talking with some guys on facebook. I am trying to get them to come to Mississippi State with me."
