Bulldogs Remain in Contact with DeBrossard

Mississippi State was one of the first programs to take a strong look at Shiloh High (GA) offensive lineman Darion DeBrossard. The raw athletic talent has picked up a half dozen or so offers, but he is still hopeful that Mississippi State makes a move. The Bulldogs are one of a trio of programs showing a strong level of interest in the rising tackle prospect.

"We just ended the football season and now I am just trying to see who all is going to offer me, so I can figure out which school I am going to," explained DeBrossard. "I have two D2 offers and I have six division one offers. Alcorn State was the last school to offer me."

A pair of SEC programs are beginning to show an increased level of attention in the Peach State sled pusher.

"Vanderbilt is beginning to show me a lot of interest," said DeBrossard. "I am hearing a lot from them and I just started hearing from Alabama's offensive line coach, Coach (Mario) Cristobal. I am not sure how much interest they have, but he just started contacting me."

The Commodores and Crimson Tide are just beginning to feel out the talented left tackle, but the Mississippi State Bulldogs are in regular contact.

"I don't have an offer from Mississippi State," said DeBrossard. "I have been talking with Coach (David) Turner about twice a week. He told me that he wants me to know that Mississippi State has not forgotten about me.

"They told me from the beginning that they are looking for two more offensive lineman in this class and they have to be sure about the two they take. They said that they really like me and they want to see how things go.

"I know there a lot of new people looking at Mississippi State now, because of their streak. I feel like that's kind of hurt my recruitment with them. There are more people thinking about going to Mississippi State, so they have to look at more people before they decide who they want to take."

DeBrossard reports that he is hopeful that things work out between him and Mississippi State.

"I get the feeling that they just want me to wait things out and see how things go," said DeBrossard. "I am okay with that. I have some offers now, but I love to get an offer from Mississippi State. I really like it over there and I hope that something works out."
