  • The camp was the first time that Foxworth had visited Mississippi State.

    "This is my first time to visit Mississippi State," he said. "I love the atmosphere here. They have a lot of facilities here, and they are good facilities. When you have good facilities you have more to work on. I like the coaching staff. I like how they work with the student-athletes."

    It was obviously the first time that he had worked with Mississippi State defensive line coach David Turner.

    "This was my first time to meet Coach Turner," said Foxworth. "He is a good guy. I like him because he is a funny guy and he loves for kids to learn things. He is not one of those coaches who, if you don't know how to do it he's not going to give up on you. He's going to talk about you but he's trying to help you learn."

    He learned several things during the camp that he feels will help him in the future.

    "I learned how to use the bottom part of my hand," said Foxworth. "It is the hardest part of your body. So, if you hit somebody with it, they are going to feel it. Coach Turner taught me that. I also learned good get off the ball skills, which takes away the offensive lineman's outside shoulder."

    His recruiting coach for Mississippi State is Tony Hughes. He offered his opinion about Coach Hughes.

    "I like Coach Hughes, he is a good guy," said Foxworth. "We have the kind of relationship where we could sit down and talk all day if we ever had that chance."

    Mississippi State is one of several schools that Foxworth is going to camp at.

    "I plan on going to camps at Georgia, Alabama, Ole Miss, Louisiana-Lafayette and LSU," he said.

    As of now, three colleges are showing recruiting interest in him.

    "Schools that are recruiting me are Mississippi State, Southern Miss and Ole Miss," said Foxworth.
