"I had a great time at Mississippi State, the camp went good," Eiland said. "I have been up there a few times this year and I really enjoyed getting the chance to work with Coach (John) Hevesy."
The three star offensive tackle reports that he has begun to build a solid relationship with the Mississippi State staff especially prospective position coach, John Hevesy.
"I like him a lot," Eiland said. "He's tough and he's firm, but that's what I like about him. He pushes you to do it right. You can tell he knows what he's doing and he seems like a good coach."
The University of Texas also hosted Eiland as an unofficial visitor this past weekend. The trip to Austin was a memorable one for the talented tackle.
"Texas has always been one of my favorite schools," Eiland said. "I am glad I got to finally go over there and see everything. It was a long trip, but I had a good time over there. Texas is a great program."
The thinking early on was that Eiland would stay in state and likely attend Ole Miss for his college career. It appears that Mississippi State has made a serious move with the Philadelphia, Mississippi product.
"When I was leaving camp the other night, I got to meet with Coach (Dan) Mullen," Eiland explained. "Coach Mullen told me that they really want me over there and that he thinks Mississippi State would be a good fit for me. He told me that they want me bad and he wants me to take some time to think about everything."
Eiland has not ruled out a pre-season decision and it appears that the Bulldogs are surging at this point.
"I have been talking with my mama about everything and I just have some thinking to do about what is best for my future," Eiland. "I have some good offers and I want to be sure that I make the right decision."
