  • One of the top 2013 quarterbacks in the state of Mississippi, Posey has begun his camp tour this summer. He camped at one of Mississippi State's elite talent camps Thursday. And he came away impressed with what he saw and learned at the camp.

    "I liked that there wasn't as many people here as there are at a normal camp," said Posey. "That allowed me to receive more attention and more one-on-one coaching from the quarterbacks coach. And I learned a lot from (MSU quarterbacks) Coach (Les) Koenning."

    And it appeared that Coach Koenning liked what he saw from the young signal-caller.

    "The coaches liked how I got the ball out quick on my short throws," said Posey. "I have to work on my long throws this summer."

    Posey has three more camps planned during the new few weeks.

    "This is my first college camp so far, but I have three more that I am going to, Ole Miss, Southern Miss and ULL (University of Louisiana)," said Posey.

    Posey is receiving recruiting interest from four colleges.

    "Mississippi State, ULL, ULM and Southern Miss are showing interest in me," said the youngster.
