Back From His Official Visit

Meridian (MS) High School wide receiver Chris Smith is back from his official visit to Mississippi State.

"It went well, man," said Chris Smith. "It gave my family a chance to see what it's like up there and what I will be dealing with."

Something that was very impressive to him was Mississippi State's new video replay board.

"They showed some highlights on the jumbotron," said Smith. "That looked good. It's big, man. It's the biggest in the SEC."

Smith was hosted by one of MSU's top young wide receivers.

"O'Neal Wilder was my host," said Smith. "He's cool and real laid back."

Smith also had a one-on-one with MSU head man Dan Mullen.

"Coach Mullen told me to be ready when I come up there," said Smith,

Now all that's left for the likeable youngster is Wednesday's signing day.

"I'm just ready to sign Wednesday," said Smith.
