  • Name: Austin Sexton
  • High School: Sparkman (AL) High School
  • Classification: Freshman
  • Position: RHP
  • HT-WT: 6-foot-2, 175
  • Bats/Throws R/R



    I caught you by surprise because you didn't know MSU's recruiting class is ranked No. 2 by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper. What is your initial reaction to that?
    "It blows my mind to be part of a group of guys that is that good. I knew we had (a lot of) guys that were good but I didn't know that we were the number 2 recruiting class in the nation."

    You are a part of the reason they are ranked so high. You were projected to be a high draft pick prior to suffering an injury while playing basketball. Tell MSU fans more about the injury.
    "In January I was playing basketball and I went up to block a shot and came down wrong and tore my ACL and my MCL. I had surgery in January."

    You didn't get to play your senior season of baseball.
    "I thew one pitch. My coach let me go out there against my rival school. He talked to the other coach and they allowed me to throw one pitch so I could say that I did something my senior year."

    Was it a ball or a strike?
    "It was right down the middle."

    Did the batter hit it?
    "He didn't. They agreed to take it."

    Not only did the injury affect your senior season but you were also projected to be a high draft pick. Based on your talks with pro scouts, where were you projected to go in the draft prior to the injury?
    "A bunch of scouts told me 3rd to 5th round; they said it just depends. Even after the (January) surgery, I got calls for the 11th round on draft day."

    Despite the surgery, they still thought that highly of you?
    "Yes sir."

    Since you are an MSU fan, I'm guessing you would have still seriously thought about coming to MSU. Am I right in saying that?
    "Yes sir. I am (tall) and lanky but I need to get bigger and stronger. And (MSU pitching) Coach (Butch) Thompson is the best pitching coach in the country. I thought I could develop a lot more and get better."

    Despite being a State fan and committing fairly early, you still had quite a few schools recruit you. What other schools did you consider?
    "Auburn, Ole Miss, Samford, UAB, South Alabama ... schools like that."

    You committed early, probably over a year.
    "Yes sir, I committed way over a year (before I signed)."

    A lot of the players in this recruiting class committed early. Why did you decide to commit so early?
    "Ever since I was little I wanted to be a Mississippi State Bulldog. To come here was my dream. My dad went here, my mom went here."

    Speaking of your dad, I'm guessing he was pretty excited about you choosing Mississippi State?
    "He was (so) proud (that) he was crying. It was a good day."

    I guess it made you proud to see that?
    "Yes sir."

    What kind of pitcher will MSU fans see when they see you pitch? I know you will continue to improve because of your projectability, but what will MSU fans see this fall?
    "They will see a guy who attacks the zone and likes to mix up his pitches. I love the changeup. It's my favorite pitch. And I think it's the best pitch in baseball. I'm working on a cutter to go along with the curveball. I just go after people."

    Now that you are here at Mississippi State, what has it been like?
    "I honestly didn't know what to expect coming in. (But) I have loved every minute of it. I came in early for the summer session for workouts, the two classes during the summer. It has been amazing."

    Have you gained weight since you have been here?
    "I go up and down. It's hard to gain weight, especially with all the running that we do here. But lately I have been trying to put on some good weight and get bigger."
