Bulldogs Receive 4th Commitment

In 2005, the Hazlehurst Indians were the Mississippi Class 3A state champions. They went 13-0 on the season and were unscored upon in eight of those contests including the state championship game. The man leading the charge on offense was quarterback Damein Anderson who had 9 carries for 111 yards and a touchdown in the state title game.

Several schools are already showing interest in the versatile athlete.

"I am getting letters from Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Houston and Jackson State," said Damein, who runs a 4.5 in the forty. "Texas A&M and LSU have stopped by the school and talked to my coaches."

Anderson attended Junior Day at Mississippi State on March 25th and came away very impressed.

"I like the campus and the facilities. It's real pretty up there," he said. "I got to meet with a lot of the coaches. (Assistant) Coach (Melvin) Smith talked with me and he seemed to like me. He wants me to come up there and play DB. I had already spoken with (Assistant) Coach (Shane) Beamer and he was cool. I got to meet with (Head) Coach (Sylvester) Croom. He told me he was happy to see me there. I could see myself playing up there."

It appears the MSU coaching staff also could see him playing there as well.

"Yesterday afternoon at 1:15 my coach called me in and told me that Mississippi State had told him that I had a scholarship offer. I was so happy. I can't believe it happened so fast."

And he's made the MSU coaching staff just as happy as they made him.

"I have made a decision and I want to go to MSU," said the 5-11, 175-pounder. "I think I will really enjoy playing there. MSU is my first offer, but that's where I want to go."

After leading the Indians to their first ever State football title, what will Anderson do for an encore and where will his other offers come from? Stay tuned to Scout.com as the answers unfold in the coming months.
