Big Dawg: Nigel Knott

The stars aligned this past Friday night in Starkville, Mississippi as Mississippi State hosted the best that the Magnolia State has to offer at the annual Big Dawg camp. One of the most talented players on campus for the event was Germantown High (MS) corner Nigel Knott.


"I didn't come to compete today. I just came to hang out and be around the players," Knott said. "I just wanted to see the competition and just have some fun at here."

Knott reports that he spent some time conversing with current Bulldog coaches and future Bulldog players over the course of his visit.

"I talked a lot with Coach (DeShea) Townsend and with Nero Nelson. Raekwon Davis just got here, so I am going to see about hanging out with some of the players tonight. We're trying to get everything set up right now and find out who all is staying over."

Several schools have extended offers to the talented Knott. The process continues for the four star corner, but it appears that a decision is not coming anytime soon.

"Recruiting has been a lot of fun, but it's sort of stressful too," Knott shared. "You still have to make that decision and you still have to figure out where you want to go. This is something that is going to affect you the rest of your life."

There are always rumors that follow highly recruited prospects and Knott is no different. The grapevine suggests that Knott is leaning towards going out of state for his college career, but the four star talent reports that the in state programs remain in consideration.

"There is always a lot of pressure to stay in state for the in state prospects," Knott said. "I just want to make sure about everything before I make any decisions. I am still considering all of the schools. I just want to take as much time as I can with everything, because it's such a big decision on signing day. I am thinking about making my commitment after I take the official visits."
