Bulldog Pledge Adds New Offers

Offensive guard Dee Nalls committed to Mississippi State prior to the first game of his junior season. Since that time, Nalls has seen his future teammates rise to the top of the national polls and play in the Capital One Orange Bowl. Needless to say, Nalls was able to wear his Maroon and White with pride this past fall.

"It was fun to be able to say that I was committed to the #1 team in the nation," Nalls said. "They had a good year and it was a lot of fun to watch them."

Once the season ended, Nalls saw his area recruiting coach leave Starkville for a job at Florida. Despite the change, Nalls remains in contact with the coaching staff at Mississippi State.

"I was talking with Coach (Geoff) Collins, but he left," Nalls said. "I talk to Coach (John) Hevesy, the O line coach about once every two weeks and I have been talking some with Coach Dan (Mullen). They are always telling me how excited they are about getting me up there.

"Coach Hevesy said that he wants me to play strongside guard."

The Bulldogs continue to hold Nalls' verbal commitment, but some new schools are looking to make a run at the talent interior offensive lineman.

"I just got an offer from Memphis about two weeks ago," Nalls said. "I have offers now from Mississippi State, Memphis, Southern Miss and Louisville."

Nalls does not play any spring time sports, so his complete focus is on getting ready for his senior campaign.

"I am just getting ready for spring practice," Nalls said. "I am ready to get back out there and work on getting better."

Nalls is one of nine verbal pledges towards the 2016 Mississippi State signing class. The Bulldogs were his first offer. The three star offensive guard made his commitment to the Bulldogs during the Big Dawg camp that closed out the Mississippi State summer camp sessions.
