Chris Relf of Carver High School in Montgomery, AL, has decided to play his college ball with the Mississippi State Bulldogs and Head Coach Sylvester Croom.

"I talked with Coach Croom and he told me I had a good arm and a lot of talent. I think it's a great school and I would love to go there. I have a brother that is going to be playing at Alcorn, so it will be nice to be close by," said Chris.

Chris is drawing attention and has spoken with some other coaches, but it appears that the offer from Sly Croom will be the only one he needs.

"I told Coach Croom that I wanted to commit, but he told me he wanted me to wait until I had the chance to discuss it with my parents," said Relf. "I discussed it with them and we are all in agreement. I will play for Mississippi State."

Relf played in a Wing-T offense last season, but this Spring the Carver coaching staff made some changes.

"I am excited about the new offense. We're switching to the spread offense and the coaches are building it around me," explained Chris.

Chris is receiving interest from Alabama, Auburn, Colorado, Illinois, Mississippi State, Oregon, Tennessee and Vanderbilt. Mississippi State is his only offer to date, but Chris believes Vanderbilt is close to offering.

Relf was named 2nd team All-Combine team for his showing at the Scout.com All-American combine in Tuscaloosa, AL.

"That's good. I feel great about that. There were some really good Quarterbacks there," remarked Relf.

Relf marks Mississippi State's seventh verbal commitment of the 2007 signing class.
