"Yes, I have."
The last time we talked you were going to decide between Arkansas and Mississippi State. Which one did you choose?
When did you decide, Marvin?
"I told Coach Sherrill Friday."
What made you choose Mississippi State over Arkansas?
"I know the system after going over there for four years (His brother Shawn played at State the last few years. - Gene). My mom liked it also."
In other news, I have talked to Nick Brooks and Brandon Wright. Nick said he is down to LSU, Florida and Georgia Tech. He said Mississippi State is no longer in the picture. Brandon Wright told me he is committed to Memphis.
I have not been able to get in touch with Sam Olajubutu, Nathan Bennett and Nick Turner, three other players that have either committed to State or is still considering State. Nick, who is another Parade All-American, is deciding between MSU and Maryland. Sam, who committed to MSU earlier, is still considering Arkansas according to published reports. I have also seen a rumor that Nathan, who committed to MSU after his visit there, may have decommitted to MSU and committed to Clemson. As I find out more information, I will post it on my page.
