Emerson talked about his offer from Mississippi State.

"Two weeks ago Mississippi State offered me," said Emerson. "Coach (Terrell) Buckley called my coach and offered me. My coach and I were in the car together. That was my first offer. It felt really good to get it. It shows that all my hard work is paying off."

Emerson, due to the offer, decided to attend a Mississippi State camp. And he is happy he did.

"The camp was a great experience," said the talented athlete who played cornerback under the supervision of Coach Buckley during the camp. "I learned a lot of new stuff from Coach Buckley that I didn't already know. Now, I am going to go home and try to perfect it."

It appears that Coach Buckley liked what he saw of Emerson as well.

"Coach Buckley said he likes my size," said Emerson. "And he said because they offered me, he wanted to help me get better."

Emerson came away impressed not only with the camp but Mississippi State overall.

"I like it at Mississippi State," said Buckley, who is also being recruited by Florida Atlantic and Miami (FL). "I like their work ethic, the coaches. The coaches really push you to get better. Coach Buckley was hard on the players but I know he just wants us to get better. I can see myself coming here."
