West Enjoys Mississippi State Experience

Mississippi State is looking for some quality offensive lineman to fill out the 2016 signing class the the two deep chart of the future. Several talented prospects have spent time working with Bulldog O line boss John Hevesy over the course of the last several days. One recruit looking to catch Hevesy's eye on Wednesday was Bowdon, GA product Canon West.


"Things went pretty good," West said of camp. "I am just out here working. I learned a lot about pass blocking schemes. We don't do that a lot at my school. I learned how to do it the right way here."

In addition to sharpening the pass protection saw, West was able to gain some additional direction from Coach John Hevesy.

"Coach Hevesy is a lot of fun," West said. "He's real out going and he's really upbeat. I like his attitude towards football. He's really good at demonstrating things. He explains everything to you in detail and then he expects you to do it right the very first time."

A handful of schools have shown varying levels of interest in West, who projects as an offensive guard on the college level.

"I am hearing from Memphis, Louisiana-Lafayette, Kennesaw State, Coastal Carolina, Georgia State and a couple of others," West said. "I enjoyed the camp here, so maybe I will hear more from Mississippi State."
