Lenton Still Looking

Quincy Lenton committed to Mississippi State during the Bulldogs' run to #1 last season. After several other schools extended offer, Lenton elected to back off of his previous decision and take another look at his college options. With the 2015 season looming, Lenton reports that he is in no rush to make any decisions about his future.

"I have been getting love from a lot of schools," Lenton said. "They have been coming after me, but right now I am still open. I am just exploring my options right now."

Despite decommiting from Mississippi State at the end of the spring semester, Lenton reports that the Bulldogs remain a consideration for him.

"Mississippi State is still one of my top schools," Lenton said. "They are most definitely an option for me. They're still one of my top schools."

Lenton has several invitations to visit college campuses around the region, but so far his focus has centered around Meridian football rather than college football.

"I haven't been that many places," Lenton said. "I have been to Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Auburn. I'm just going with the flow. I don't really have any plans coming up."

On Saturday, Lenton was in Madison, Mississippi with his team to take part in the Medicomp 7-on07 tournament. Lenton believes events such as these can help his team prepare for the fall when they put the pads on.

"This helps us with our coverage on defense and we're just competing," Lenton. "It's great to be out here with all of these teams and we're trying to win."

Meridian fans are used to winning and the Wildcats look to be one of the top teams in Mississippi's 6A classification once again. Lenton believes that MHS can have a memorable year.

"We have weapons," Lenton said. "We have Travis Reed, Daniel Crowell and we have some young guys stepping up. I think we can win a championship this year. I think we can go all the way. We have to have it and I believe that we're going to get it."
