Brown Hosts Visitors, Sets Official

Frederick Brown's Jim Hill football career ended with the regular season finale. Fortunately, the talented wideout will play in the Bernard Blackwell All-Star classic pitting All-Stars from Mississippi in a battle between north and south. Once that game is complete, Fred will turn his full attention towards summer enrollment at Mississippi State.

"Coach Mullen just left my house a few minutes ago," said Brown on Monday evening. "They came and visited with me and my family."

Frederick was eager to hear what the Bulldogs' head man had to say about his future in Starkville.

"Coach Mullen talked to me about all of the requirements, expectations and goals they have for their players," said Brown. "He talked about how important it is to be a student-athlete and not just an athlete.

"He told me that he wants me to come up there and work hard on the football field and work hard to get my education.

"He said it's real important to them that their players get their degrees."

This past weekend, several of Fred's fellow Bulldog pledges attended the annual Battle for the Golden Egg between Mississippi State and Ole Miss.

Fred was unable to attend, but he paid very close attention to the contest.

"I watched on TV," said Brown. "I thought they played a good game. They won and it's always good to beat your rival.

"I really like the direction of the program. They are going to another bowl game this year and it has been awhile since Mississippi State has been to back-to-back Bowl games."

College coaches are hot on the recruiting trail this time of year, so Frederick will not be surprised if other schools check in before signing day.

"Memphis has still been calling me, but that's about it right now," said Brown. "I am solid with Mississippi State though.

"I am ready to get up there and get started. I am ready to work to help the team get to another bowl game next year."

During Frederick's in-home visit with Coach Dan Mullen, the pair set his official visit for the weekend of January the 13th.
