"I have made my decision to go to Mississippi State. I like their academic program and their school. I have always wanted to play on their football team," explained the excited Hunt.

Hunt marks another in-state commitment for MSU recruiting coordinator Shane Beamer.

"I am going to play safety. The fact that I am a big hitter is what a lot of coaches liked about me. Coach Beamer said he likes my size, the fact that I can hit and that I cover ground quick." said Mike.

Mike was receiving interest from Ole Miss, LSU, USM, Auburn, Oregon and Texas. Depite other schools' interest, Hunt says he is firmly committed to Mississippi State.

"Mississippi State is definitely where I want to go. I talked to Coach Croom and he was very excited. He said they are really looking forward to seeing me up there," said Mike.
