Scout National 300 running back Kylin Hill recaps his official visit to Mississippi State.

Long time Mississippi State commitment Kylin Hill took his official visit to Starkville this weekend. The four star standout has been one of Mississippi's best players the past two seasons, so the Bulldogs' interest in Hill came as no surprise. With just over two weeks to National Signing Day, Hill reports he is still locked in with Coach Dan Mullen and his staff.

"(The) visit went so well, man it put the icing on the cake," Kylin Hill shared. "Being with the players and laughing and having fun was crazy. I really enjoyed myself. Being with Coach (Dan) Mullen never gets old. (He's) an exciting guy and a good person. I enjoyed myself."

Hill, the MVP of the Mississippi/Alabama All-Star game, had the chance to spend some time with one of his favorite Bulldogs during the weekend. A fan favorite from Memphis, Tennessee handled the hosting responsibilities for the Bulldogs.

"My host was Donald Gray," Hill said. "Man, that's my big bro. It's like he just took me under his wing. That's my brother."

Over the course of the weekend. the nine Bulldog visitors were treated to a photo shoot in complete Bulldog uniform, some of the finest selections of local cuisine as well as the chance to see the Bulldogs knock off Texas A&M in men's basketball.

For Hill, the better part of the experience was the chance to spend time with future coaches and teammates.

"The best part of the visit was just being around the players," Hill said. "We did a lot of fun things, but just being with the players was the best experience."

The Bulldogs are currently ranked in the top 20 in the scout.com national team rankings. More talented prospects are expected to join the Mississippi State fold between now and National Signing Day. Hill believes the group can have some big years together in the Maroon and White.

"I am excited about the class," Hill said. "This class is big man. I think we can change the program and do some big things."

Hill had a tremendous senior season rushing for 1,750 yards and 24 touchdowns for the Columbus High Falcons. Hill chose the Bulldogs over offers from Memphis, Missouri, Nebraska, Ole Miss, Oregon State, Texas, UAB and many others. The talented running back is set to enroll in Starkville this summer to begin his coursework and take part in summer conditioning drills.

For now, Hill is doing his best job as a recruiter. With fellow Golden Triangle All-Star Willie Gay of Starkville High waiting to announce on signing day, Hill plans to do his part to share the Bulldog message in hopes of luring the All-American linebacker to Mississippi State.
