Big Dawg: Malik Heath

Callaway High School has been a hot bed for college football recruiters over the course of the last few years. The Chargers have put several players into the college ranks and it appears that trend will continue over the course of the next few years. On Friday night, 2018 wide receiver Malik Heath earned an offer from Mississippi State after a strong showing at Big Dawg camp.

On the final play of one-on-ones, Heath took a bit of a spill and had to be examined by medical personnel. The talented wide out was no worse for wear, but he was soon feeling no pain as his first college scholarship offer was extended.

"Oh, I am okay. I just bruised my knee. I'm straight," Heath said. "I feel great now. I just got my first official offer. I think I deserved it after the way I did in camp."

The good news was certainly welcomed by the rising super star who was among the national leaders as a freshman last fall.

"Coach (Billy) Gonzales told me that they are going to do their best to try to get me up here," Heath said. "He said that they are going to be coming at me real hard. He said that they really want me up here."

While the recruiting process is just beginning for Heath, he already has a good rapport with the Bulldog wide receiver boss.

"I really like him," Heath said. "He's real cool. He told me that I was a big kid and that he liked me work ethic. He said that he wants me to come up here and play with him after the next couple of years. I feel good about Mississippi State, real good."
