Big Dawg: C.J. Morgan-Walker

Parkway High (LA) standout defensive back C.J. Morgan-Walker put one of the first wheels on the Mississippi State 2016 recruiting bandwagon. C.J. was unable to attend one of the Bulldogs' June camp sessions, so he was eager to get back into the land or Maroon and White for last weekend's Big Dawg camp.

"I had a great time," Morgan-Walker said of the event. "It was just so much fun and I love being down there. It was just a great experience all the way around. I get more excited every time I get to go over there."

Morgan-Walker had the chance to work under the direction of Mississippi State corner's coach Deshea Townsend during the evening's drills.

"The entire camp was completely intense," Morgan-Walker said. "You don't just do the drills there. We had to do a full weight workout and Coach Townsend was right there watching me the whole time. I wanted to work hard and show him what I could do.

"They really work you hard and they want to see you compete in everything. We really got after it. The Mississippi State camp is different than any other camp I have ever been to."

The Ark-La-Tex star had the chance to get to know some of his fellow Bulldog verbals as well as some of the team's priority targets.

"Me and Cameron Dantzler really bonded at the camp and we're building a bond," Morgan-Walker said. "We got to talk a lot with Kobe Jones who plays at Starkville. I am trying to tell him he needs to come join us and I feel like he's going to.

"It was great to be around everybody including the players. I got to talk a lot with Jamal Peters and he told me about what it's like up there and how hard they work. I enjoyed talking with him."

One Bulldog player has enjoyed some good natured ribbing with Morgan-Walker and his teammate, Keondre Wudtee. As it turns out, Morgan-Walker's high school team, Parkway, is the arch-rival of Mississippi State Heisman candidate Dak Prescott.

"I remember back on junior day, Dak was smiling and saying that he needed to come talk 'these Parkway dudes'," Morgan-Walker said. "They used to beat us when he was there, but we've been blowing them out the past few years since he's been gone. I have to talk to him about that a little bit when we see each other."
