"I have been wanting to be a Bulldog, but I was waiting patiently to see what all schools were going to come and offer me," said Spivey. "I wanted to play for my home state and Mississippi State came through for me."
Spivey is a very social person who communicates with several of the state's top players.
It appears that a pact of sorts between Spivey and four star Jamal Peters has paid dividends for the Bulldogs.
"We have been talking for about a year about playing together on the next level," said Spivey. "We got together today and I told him that I was going to pull the trigger.
"He said if I did it, then he would too.
"We did and now we just want to put on for our home state."
The Bay Springs standout reports that his recruiting efforts on behalf of the Bulldogs will continue.
"We all want to do something big for our home state."
Spivey reports that his commitment to Mississippi State is something he takes very seriously.
"Tennessee offered me and I know they might want me to come and visit," said Spivey. "I have a few friends up there, but I know that I am a Bulldog for sure.
"We're putting a great class together and all of the best players in Mississippi are coming to Mississippi State."
