"It was more than I expected."

Winona (MS) High School TE/DE Colton Jenkins, a Mississippi State commitment, took his official visit to Mississippi State this weekend and came away even more impressed with MSU than he already was.

"Overall, I enjoyed the visit really well," said Colton, who was hosted by Mark Melichar. "It was more than I expected."

He expanded on his comments.

"They gave us tours of the campus and facilities," said Colton. "They provided us information about the campus and the history behind it. I really enjoyed it because it allowed me to get to know everything better."

He also enjoyed being around the other commitments that were on their official visit to State.

"We all got along. We just connected," noted Colton. "Everybody was laid back and we were all cool. It was like we had been playing together since we could play."

If there were any doubts about his commitment to MSU going into the weekend, they were totally erased.

"This visit sealed the deal. I think I made the right choice and I'm happy with it," explained Colton. "This weekend, they made me feel like I was already a Bulldog. I'm through with (recruiting), there's no more."
