Mullins participated in one of Mississippi State's camps last week at the request of Mississippi State defensive coordinator Geoff Collins, his recruiting coach for MSU.
"Coach Collins invited me to the camp," said Mullins. "It was a great feeling being invited by him."
Mullins felt like he had a great camp and the response from his position coach at the camp, MSU defensive line coach David Turner, appeared to confirm that impression.
"I think I did good during the camp," said Mullins, who ran a 4.56 forty-yard dash during the camp. "Coach Turner said he liked everything about me. Him saying that made me feel good."
But Mullins is not going to sit on his accolades. He knows if he wants to play in the SEC he'll need to continue to improve his overall play.
"I'm still going to work on my entire game so that I can be an SEC ballplayer," said the Scout.com 3-star defensive end.
One SEC school that already feels like he's ready to be an SEC ballplayer is Mississippi State.
"Mississippi State offered me in the spring," said Mullins. "(Coach Collins) got with my coaches and offered me. I was in shock when I found out that I had the offer. It was my first SEC school and it was my dream school.
"Ever since I was young I have wanted to go to Mississippi State. I used to come to basketball camps at Mississippi State, then I started playing football. I love the campus and love the state. And I have family in Mississippi. It's close to home. It is a good fit for me."
