One program elected to extend a scholarship offer shortly after a strong showing in their summer camp.
"Mississippi State offered me," said Austin. "They let me know not long after the camp that they were going to offer me."
The Bulldogs have remained in touch with the talented wideout over the course of the last several months.
"I got a letter from all of the coaches and they told me that they wanted me to be a Bulldog," said Austin. "The letter also said that they only wanted me to come to Mississippi State if I felt that was my best choice.
"They told me to take my time with everything and to keep them in mind because they really wanted me up there."
Scott attended the Egg Bowl and plans to return to Starkville early next year to learn more about the Bulldogs.
"I wouldn't mind going to Mississippi State at all," said Austin. "They have a good program and I liked the campus and all of that when I went up there."
Junior days will be a big part of Austin's turn of the year activities. The biggest part of the spring will be to prepare for a standout senior season.
"I feel like we're going to be really good on offense," said Scott. "We need to step it up some on defense.
"Coach Shannon is always saying that our team is based on speed and not size. We are all working hard to get better for next year."
