How was your visit to MSU?
"I was looking for a place with a family type atmosphere and that is what I found at Mississippi State. The facilities are nice, and all in all I had a good time."
Has your opinion of MSU changed after your visit and if so, how?
"Though I always felt committed, the visit did positively influence my decision."
What do you think about the Mississippi State coaches after being around them this past weekend?
"The coaches are all great and seem to know what they are doing. Coach Croom, though, stood out, he is incredible."
Who was your player host and your thoughts about him?
"My host was Keith Andrews. He seems like a good guy. Says he used to an LSU fan until he took his visit to State. Then he was sure he had made the right decision."
Did you meet any other recruits?
"I met a lot of recruits, but the thing that stood out was Coach Croom's speech. He told us why he handpicked us. He said that if we all play together as a team that in a few years we could win a national (championship)."
