Mississippi State verbal C.J. Morgan-Walker talks about his official visit to Mississippi State.

C.J. Morgan-Walker is one of the longest standing verbal commitments towards the Mississippi State 2016 signing class. With his grant-in-aid documentation already signed, Morgan-Walker took the only official visit he plans to take when he visited Coach Dan Mullen and his staff.

"I really enjoyed myself," Morgan-Walker said. "Starkville really showed me a good time."

Morgan-Walker was able to learn the lay of the land thanks to he guidance of a current Bulldog freshman.

"Jonnas Spivey was my host," Morgan-Walker said. "I had met him before and we got to talking about when we first met. He showed me around and answered my questions. He's a good guy."

Part of the weekend involved getting to socialize with some of the Mississippi State players.

"My first night, I went over to Dak Prescott's house," Morgan-Walker said. "We all played video games and just hung out together. We did pretty much the same thing the second night. We all just sort of hung out together all weekend. 

"I enjoyed that. I liked being able to just get to know everybody and just do what they do."

In addition to recreating with the Bulldog players, Morgan-Walker had the chance to get to learn about the facilities available to both players and students.

"We got to see some of the academic buildings and I saw the dorm where I am going to be staying," Morgan-Walker said. "Christian Roberson is going to be my roommate, so we got to talk about all of that. It was a lot of fun and I enjoyed getting to see everything."

Before returning to Louisiana, Morgan-Walker had the chance to meet with Coach Dan Mullen about what to expect in the coming weeks and years.

"Coach Mullen told me that I was on the right track," Morgan-Walker said. "He told me that he just wants me to come in ready to work hard and help the team. It's all about recruiting too. I am going to be trying to help get some of the other guys to come to Mississippi State with us."

Morgan-Walker is already making plans to take on a more active role in the Bulldogs' recruiting efforts.

"I was telling Cam Dantzler earlier about the visit," Morgan-Walker said. "I told him that when he comes up here next month that I want to host him on his visit. I want to be able to show him all around and introduce him to everybody."

Morgan-Walker will enroll at Mississippi State in a few weeks and then prepare to take part in spring football practice sessions. The three star standouts is one of the top football prospects in north Louisiana for the 2016 signing class.
