Scout.com's Steve Robertson evaluated Staley earlier this month after Mississippi State offered the Staley:
"Listed at 6-7 and while that may be a bit generous, Staley looks extremely athletic for a taller guy. He lacks the stiffness that generally comes with players his size. A sleek runner, Staley is a threat to make big plays with his feet when he elects to tuck it and go."
Staley was offered by Vandy in June and spoke with Scout.com's Chad Simmons.
"Coach Franklin told me they really loved how I throw the ball, that they love my size, they feel I fit into their system, and they feel I am very coachable."
Staley, who has not yet been rated by Scout.com, also had offers from Appalachian State and Boston College in addition to Vandy and MSU. A highly sought basketball prospect as well, Staley has offers from Boston College, College of Charleston, Georgetown, Georgia, Georgia Tech, and Ole Miss in that sport.
