McGinnis Camping For Bulldog Offer

Pisgah football is making some huge strides and one of they reasons why is the play of Trummel McGinnis. The rising senior is one of the top athletes in his region and is working towards some real college options. The versatile standout was on the Mississippi State camps on Tuesday looking to improve his stock with the Bulldog coaching staff.

"Our spring game this year, we played against a 4A school, Richland, and we put up a game on them," McGinnis said. "I feel like we played a really good game. I got a touchdown and then coach took me out and put the other players in. We held on and got a shutout in the game."

McGinnis continued his strong play on Tuesday when he was one of the standouts in the Mississippi State football camp. The Bulldogs have been in touch for over a year, but so far the staff has not pulled the trigger on an offer.

"I talk to Coach (Greg) Knox a whole lot and he wants to offer me real bad," McGinnis said. "He wanted to get me out here and see me work in person. Position wise, they have sort of thrown me around in a lot of different places. They have talked about receiver DB and I am ready to test myself as a running back if I need to."

An offer from the Bulldogs may prove to be a game changer, but McGinnis is trying to keep an even keel when it comes to his selection process.

"I really like Mississippi State," McGinnis said. "I really liked it on gameday. It's real loud here and everybody gets pumped. I could see myself playing here, but I will just have to see all of my options."

A pair of schools have extended offers, but McGinnis plans to take in some other college visits to increase his list of options.

"Coming up, I have TCU, Ole Miss, Missouri and Memphis University," McGinnis said. "That should all be nice. I have offers from Central Arkansas and Missouri and I think some other schools may offer me after I come to camp."
