Gragg Elevates Dawgs to Official Visit Status

Will Gragg is one of the top tight end prospects in the country and he has the offer sheet to match. The Dumas, Arkansas product has recently juggled his list of finalists with the Bulldogs of Mississippi State making a move upwards towards serious contention for the talented four star's signing day autograph.

"It's really just the vibe I'm getting from Mississippi State," said Gragg of the Bulldogs' recent promotion to favored status. "I have been talking to Coach (Scott) Sallach for a while and I just like what I'm hearing.

"They like to use the tight end.

"He told me that they are graduating two tight ends and that they only have one committed.

"I am going to be heading down there on my official visit on the weekend of November 1st, when they play Arkansas.

"I am taking my official visit to them then. I am going to LSU (11/8), Alabama (10/18), Texas (9/6) and Ole Miss (10/3)for my other visits.

"I am going to take my visits and then I am going to make my commitment on November 18th."

Gragg reports that there is nothing special about that particular date, but the nation's number four tight end believes he will be ready to make the call.

"I just feel like I will be ready to commit by then," said Gragg. "I am taking all of my visits and then I will have some time to think about everything."

One finalist not on the official visit slate is the home state Razorbacks of Arkansas.

Due to Gragg's familiarity with the Arkansas program he believes he knows what the Razorbacks have to offer already.

"Things are going great with Arkansas," said Gragg. "They are still recruiting me very hard and working hard to keep me in state.

"They are one of my finalists and they are working hard to get me up there."

With Mississippi State moving into to final half dozen, Louisville has fallen out of contention.

"I recently read an article about Coach (Bobby) Petrino and my brother used to play for him," said Gragg. "I just feel like I need to go in another direction with my own future."

Gragg reports that all six of his finalist have a solid chance of adding him to their 2015 recruiting haul.

"I am going to take my visits and then see where I fit best," said Gragg. "I am just keeping an open mind about everything.

"I just want to go to the place where I can be the most successful in the classroom and on the field."
