Autry Takes in Starkville

Defensive tackle Lee Autry holds offers from Mississippi State, North Carolina and Wake Forest, with more schools considering following suit. Autry has had the chance to take a few campus visits during his recruitment, but today he was able to learn more about a school he has a working knowledge of, Mississippi State.

"Things went well," said Autry of his unofficial visit to Starkville. "I had a good time up there and I had the chance to see some thing I had never seen before."

Autry was able to take in the game day atmosphere at Davis Wade Stadium before as he cheered for his brother, former Bulldog defensive end Denico Autry.

This trip to see the Bulldogs was a little different.

"I got to see the stadium again and I got to go in the locker room and put on my jersey, that was probably the best part," said Autry. "I got to see the dorms and the facilities and I liked all of it.

"There was a lot of things that were new to me and I have a better idea of what they have to offer."

Bulldog defensive line coach, David Turner, was on the road recruiting, but Autry was able to spend some time with some of the Mississippi State staff.

"I got to talk to a couple of the coaches and they were telling me how glad they were I came and how much they wanted me to come there," said Autry. "I got to go in the D line meeting room and it's really cool.

"You can write on the walls in there and you can watch film from all of the games and just see what you did right and what you did wrong."

Autry reports that Mississippi State is still very much a consideration for him and that he still has some thinking to do.

"I like all of the offers that I have," said Autry. "I am still thinking about everything and just trying to find the right place for me.

"My brother (Denico) told me to take my time with everything I find the right place and to find the school where I am going to be happy.

"He told me how things went for him at Mississippi State and about how much he liked it, but he told me to make my own decision and that he is going to support me no matter where I go."
