Bulldogs Continue Pursuit of Womack

Mississippi State was the first SEC school to extend an offer to Magnolia Heights' offensive lineman Matt Womack. After collecting a few others from around the conference, the talented big man committed to LSU. Since that time, Alabama has offered and the other schools including Mississippi State have remained in touch with rising talent.

This past Saturday, Womack was one member in a huge crowd of unofficial visitors on campus at Mississippi State as the Bulldogs knocked off Auburn and earned the program's first ever #1 ranking.

While in Starkville, Womack had the chance to speak with his primary recruiter, John Hevesy, and Bulldog head coach, Dan Mullen.

"It was all good Saturday," explained Womack. "Coach (John) Hevesy and Coach (Dan) Mullen are both trying to get me to become a Bulldog."

Mississippi State is not the only program trying to get the three star sled pusher to reconsider his college future.

"Alabama, Ole Miss and Mississippi State are really working hard to change my mind," reported Womack. "Florida and Penn State are in touch and trying to get me to come visit their campuses."

As of today, Womack has not made any weekend plans, but has not ruled out a possible game day visit somewhere.

While the process rolls on, a pair of schools not named LSU have scheduled official visits for Womack to visit them in the coming months.

"I am visiting Florida November 18th and Alabama December 12th," revealed Womack. "Mississippi State and Ole Miss are still wanting me to visit."

The instate SEC schools have hosted the Magnolia Heights star in back to back weekends.

"The last two weekends were great football games to watch and both game days were awesome," admitted Womack.

"I'm still giving Mississippi State and Ole Miss good looks, but I am still solid to LSU."
