Hoover High (AL) linebacker Jeremiah Moon recaps his official visit to Mississippi State.

Mississippi State hosted a dozen visitors over the weekend. Despite being committed to Florida, long time friend of the Bulldog program, Jeremiah Moon, took an official visit along with several other priority targets. Entering the weekend, Moon reported that he was 100% committed to Florida, but things may be changing.

"I had a great visit," Jeremiah Moon said. "It was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed myself."

A familiar face handled the hosting duties for Mississippi State as the Bulldogs paired Moon up with a former high school teammate.

"Justin Johnson was my host," Moon said. "He is a freshmen tight end and he played at my high school. We already stay in touch all of the time, so he had already told me what it's like over there. He just told me  that if I decided to go over there that he had me. He said that it would be great to play together again."

Moon holds the distinction of being the first linebacker prospect to tour the Mississippi State facilities with new Bulldog defensive boss, Peter Sirmon. Sirmon was hired earlier in the week and was on the spot selling the Bulldogs right away.

"He seems like a great guy," Moon said. "I only got to spend about 48 hours with him and he had just arrived about 48 hours before that. A lot of the things we were seeing together for the first time. I had been over there before, but I got to see something I had never seen before. It was all new to him too.

"He is coming over here to see me this week and we're going to talk about everything a lot more."

Moon is not scheduled to take an official visit anywhere this weekend, but he plans to trip to Gainesville the weekend of January 29th. The three star linebacker admits he has some thinking to do before closing out his recruitment.

"Mississippi State has given me something to think about," Moon said. "I am still committed to Florida, but I am still thinking about Mississippi State. I am going to be talking to both of them and seeing them both."

Mississippi State was the first school to extend a scholarship to the talented linebacker and Moon has remained in touch with the Bulldogs throughout the recruiting process despite his commitment to Florida.
