Brandon Nix Update

Gene's Page recently caught up with Coosa Valley Academy (Harpersville, AL) offensive/defensive lineman Brandon Nix (6-4, 268, 5.1) to get a recruiting update.

Brandon Nix, a player who will play on the offensive side of the ball in college, committed to Mississippi State this past summer after attending their camp. However, since the coaching change, he hasn't heard from Mississippi State.

Despite the uncertainty, he still has interest in MSU and would like to go there.

"As of right now, I really don't know how interested they are in me because I haven't heard from them since the new coach was hired," said Nix. "If the scholarship is still there, that is where I plan on going."

Even though his status with MSU is in limbo, a couple of other programs continue to call; Middle Tennessee State and Southern Miss. One has set up an official visit while the other continues to call him.

"I am (officially visiting) Middle Tennessee State the weekend of the 9th (of January)," said Nix. "I haven't set up anything with Southern Miss yet."

Of those two schools, Middle Tennessee State has shown the most interest by offering a scholarship.
