"About three weeks ago."
Why did you decide to commit to Mississippi State?
"First of all, I decided I wanted to be close to home. The real decision was deciding whether I wanted to be close to home, somewhere around home, or not close to home. I only took two visits, one to Mississippi State and one to Memphis. After I narrowed things down, I actually felt I could not have gone wrong with either school. I had gotten to the point where I could not decide, I was in between the both of them. Then, mom said that she liked Mississippi State better, so I committed last week after I visited the University of Memphis. The coaches recruited me to be a center which is what I played in high school. So I am looking forward to coming to Mississippi State and playing center."
Thank you, James.
