Beck Works With Bulldog Coaches

Mississippi State continues to bring in quarterback prospects to camp under the direction of the Bulldog staff in hopes of finding the right fit behind center for the 2016 signing class. Alexandria, Louisiana standout Matt Beck took his turn through the practice paces in hopes of moving up the Bulldog board.

"I have been to LSU, ULM (Louisiana-Monroe), TCU, and (Texas) A&M," Beck said. "Things went really well today here (Mississippi State). I had some good receivers to throw to. I feel like we thew some good routes."

Beck reports that he enjoyed his time working under the direction of Mississippi State quarterbacks coach, Brian Johnson.

"He's great," Beck said of Johnson. "He's very detailed. I feel like he gets you the best information that you need to succeed."

The Bulldogs of Mississippi State have not extended many offers to quarterbacks, but Beck believes he did enough today to remain in contention for a scholarship.

"I feel like I performed pretty well today," Beck said. "Coach (John) Hevesy had been to the school to see me throw this spring. They told me that they were only looking to take on quarterback, so they wanted me to come to camp, so that they could evaluate me. They said that they wanted to get to know me."

While the Bulldogs have some thinking to do about their quarterback spot for this class, Beck's search for a college home also continues.

"After I leave here, I am going to Baton Rouge for a baseball tournament," Beck said. "I am just trying to keep the recruiting process going and keep all of the doors open until I find the right place."
