Beckham Makes It Official

The Hampton School provided Twany Beckham with a second chance to show the college basketball recruiting world what he could do. The decision to attend prep school has paid off handsomely for Twany as he will now get the chance to play in one of the nation's top basketball conferences.

Earlier this morning Beckham put pen to paper and officially became a Mississippi State Bulldog.

"I signed this morning," said Twany. "It feels good. I am excited about everything. It still hasn't really hit me yet. I don't think it's really going to hit me until I get down there and see how hard I am going to have to work."

Twany believes he brings a different dynamic to the MSU offensive end of the floor.

"I am a great floor general," said the confident Beckham. "I love to drive and I play off the dribble real well. I have a knack for getting to the basket. I enjoy passing the ball and being unselfish."

Beckham is the third member of the Bulldogs' signing class. Romero Osby and Dee Bost both elected to sign in the early period. Twany could be one of two regular signing period additions. The talented guard officially visited the Starkville campus this past weekend with junior college standout Jimmy Butler.

"I knew Saturday night that I was going to commit, so I started working on Jimmy to try to get him to commit," said Beckham. "He wasn't sure what he was going to do."
