"I have been getting a lot of letters and visiting different junior days," said Deggs. "I was supposed to go to Ole Miss' junior day, but I got the letter too late.

"I couldn't go on such short notice."

Deggs recently took in junior day at Mississippi State to see what the Bulldogs have to offer.

"I went to Mississippi State two weekends ago," said Deggs. "It was pretty cool. The coaches seem cool.

"I talked to the receivers' coach and the running back coach and they both want to get me out there this summer so they can evaluate me."

Deggs is happy to have his share of interest, but he is looking forward to picking up a few scholarship offers.

"Things are kind of slower than I expected," said Deggs. "I would prefer to have some more offers by now.

"I have an offer from SMU now and they are a good program.

"I have talked to Oregon and they want to see more of me and I think Mississippi State may end up offering me after they see me this summer."
