He called the Mississippi State coaches to commit this morning.
"I called Coach (Butch) Thompson around 10 this morning and told him I was ready to do," said Hennington, who chose the Bulldogs over an offer from Southern Miss. "He said they were glad that I was going to be a Bulldog. I also talked to Coach (John) Cohen a little bit when they handed him the phone. He said he was excited."
Blake Hennington is Mississippi State's first spring commitment for the current recruiting class and will be the fifteen signee for the 2008-2009 recruiting class when he signs his scholarship papers this spring.
