Harris Enjoys Official Weekend

Dezmond Harris earned an offer from Mississippi State after a strong showing at the Bulldogs' Big Dawg camp. Shortly after the offer was extended, Harris pledged to Dan Mullen and his staff. Harris suffered a season ending injury during his team's pre-season jamboree. Harris did his part to support his team from the sidelines, but this weekend Harris was able to focus on his own football future.

Harris was part of a group taking their official visits to Starkville.

The guests were treated to some of the area's best local cuisine, a guided tour of the campus including the new Seal Jr. football complex and the Bulldogs' home basketball game against Florida.

Despite all of the fanfare, Harris reports that highlight of his trip was "hanging out" with his future teammates.

"I hung out with a few of the players and the commitments," reported Harris. "I don't remember a lot of names, but I was with Shelby Christy and B.J. Hammond."

The future linebacker was hosted by fellow Alabamian Beniquez Brown.

Harris reports that he enjoyed getting to spend some time with position coach Geoff Collins and Head Coach Dan Mullen.

The McAdory standout credits "the environment" as the best thing about the Mississippi State campus and football program.

Harris has high expectations for himself and he has no problems with the responsibilities that go along with being a major college athlete.

The three star athlete says Bulldog fans should expect to see him making a contribution early in his college career.

"I give my maximum effort in everything I do," said Harris. "I expect to see a little action in my early years."
