Brandon Bryant has become a hot name in the state of Mississippi recruiting circles. The Tunica, Mississippi standout holds offers from a handful of programs, but reports he will only visit one, Mississippi State. Bryant took his official to Starkville this weekend and has his reaction.

"As soon as I got to the hotel, I was hitting my boys up," laughed Bryant. "I wanted to know where Smokey (Jamoral Graham), Gerri Green, Aeris (Williams) and my other guys were.

"We spent so much time together, it's not even funny.

"Those guys are like my brothers now.

"We know we're going to be playing together for four years, so we have been building that bond.

"We are brothers now and it's going to be so good to play with each other."

Bryant reports that his official visit host was a player that he had already spent some time with.

"Pokedawg (Kendrick Market) was my host," said Bryant. "I already knew Pokedawg through Benardrick (McKinney).

"Sometimes Pokedawg comes to Rosa Fort with Bernadrick, so I didn't have to get to know him.

"He introduced me to a lot of people and we just had fun, man.

"It was a great time. I am glad I don't have to go to school tomorrow."

During the visit, Bryant was able to learn more about his future in Starkville.

"I spent some of the meeting time with Coach (Tony) Hughes and some time with Coach (Deshea) Townsend.

"They want me to learn every position in the secondary, but I think they want me to play corner sort of like Justin Cox."

While Bryant had fielded flirtations from other programs over the course of the last few weeks, he reports that his decision is final.

"I am not going to take any more visits and my recruitment is closed," said Bryant. "I am all about Coach Mullen and the Bulldogs.

"Mississippi State is where my heart is at and that's where I need to be.

"I don't want to be disrespectful to Coach Mullen by visiting other schools.

"I committed to Mississippi State for a reason and that reason was that I am going to school there.

"You wouldn't date other girls if you were engaged and I see this as the same type of things.

"It would be wrong for me to visit other schools when I know Mississippi State is where I want to be."
