Nalls Enjoys Return Visit to Starkville

With spring football now in session in Starkville, Mississippi State has invited several of the program's top targets to town to visit the Bulldog practices. One of the first members of the 2016 Mississippi State class, Dee Nalls, had the chance to see the Bulldogs in action this past weekend.

"I really had a good time," said Nalls. "It was really just a chance to get back on campus, see them practice and see how things go. I got a chance to see how the coaches coach and see what all drills they do. I saw some things that I can use to be a better player."

While it was just the second practice of the spring, Nalls gives the Bulldogs some high marks for their efforts.

"The team looked really good," Nalls shared. "I think that they're going to be really good again this year. I watched Coach (John) Hevesy and the offensive lineman to see what all they had going on. I wanted to see the leadership out there. I was curious to see who was going to be the guy who was trying to take control and lead the offensive line. The guy that stood out to me was Rufus Warren. He is trying to be the leader."

Over the course of the past few weeks, Nalls has been on the road seeing other programs up close and person, including home state programs Alabama and Auburn. The three star offensive guard reports that his recent visit to Starkville reminded him of the reasons he committed to Mississippi State in the first place.

"My commitment is still there and it's still very strong," Nalls said. "I am excited about getting up there next year as a freshman. I have always felt good about my decision and now I feel even better about it. It was good to get back over there. I went with my cousin and we just enjoyed seeing the players and the coaches. I plan on going back over there for the spring game."

With the Bulldog fire stoked, Nalls is now ready to get to work to ensure that his senior season is the best of his high school career.

"I am going to be going down to the Nike Opening camp in New Orleans," Nalls said. "Then I am just going to be getting ready for the season. I am ready to get back out there."
