"I'm excited to visit Mississippi State," said 2013 RB Dezmin Reed of his trip to Starkville on Saturday.

The senior running back is off to a 5-0 start at Chamblee High School (GA), and faces promising months ahead. "We have a game on Friday, so I'll probably leave on Saturday morning and get up there a little early," Reed said.

"They play Tennessee. It's one of their biggest games this season."

Reed earned Mississippi State's interest as the Bulldogs recruited his teammate Davin Bellamy, who recently committed to Florida State.

"Davin was getting recruited by them, so when they came to school for him, they saw me as well," Reed explained. "They asked for my highlight tape."

Reed plans to soak in the experience at Mississippi State, as he admits he's highly interested.

"They're working on my itinerary," Reed explained. "I'll go in the locker room and meet the coaches. I'll meet my recruiter, since I haven't met him yet.

"They'll take me on the field to watch the game and then speak with me afterwards," Reed said. "They plan to watch my film this weekend and go from there."

Reed is interested in checking out the campus and the Bulldog fan base. "I also want them to see my personality and my style of play. I want them to know that I'm very interested in them as well."

More than a thousand miles north of Mississippi, Reed has also gained recent interest from Minnesota. "They came to the game Friday and my head coach told me they love me. They're going to check my tape from the last couple of games.

"They're on board. I'm just waiting for them to pull the trigger," Reed said of the potential offer at Minnesota. "I'd like to visit them. It's something different and it may fit my style of play."

There are no further dates set for Reed's visits this fall.
