"I called Coach Mullen and told him I was ready to be a Bulldog," said Dee on Monday morning. "He was excited. They are more than likely going to play me at safety."
Arrington reports that one of the main reasons he chose Mississippi State was his relationship with the staff there.
"I got to communicate with all of the coaches there," said the Dandy Dozen selection. "I got to know all of them real good. I didn't know the other coaches like I knew them."
Mississippi State had been the leader for quite a while. With the season approaching, Arrington saw no need to prolong things.
"I had been thinking about doing it for a while," said the hard hitting safety. "I decided to go ahead and do it this past weekend. I feel better know that it's over."
