New MSU Football Commitment

Tylertown (MS) High School standout Jameon Lewis (5-8, 170) committed to Mississippi State Saturday afternoon.

After receiving a scholarship offer from Mississippi State head football coach Dan Mullen on June 1st, Jameon Lewis made the trek over to Mississippi State for their one-day 7-on-7 4A-6A high school camp today. And he came away as the newest Bulldog.

"I committed to Mississippi State this afternoon," said Lewis, who came to the camp with his dad and little brother. "It's in my home state. It's in the SEC. I really like everything about Mississippi State."

Including the facilities.

"I got to see the locker room, the film study room, the relaxing room, and everything," said Lewis, who is expected to play either wide receiver or cornerback for the Bulldogs. "Everything was real nice."

But with Jameon it's really about the people at Mississippi State and what they are trying to build.

"The main thing was I loved the people," said the 5-8, 170-pound speedster who is Tylertown's first SEC commitment since Josh Davis' commitment to Georgia. "They were all talking to me, making me feel special. Coach Tony Hughes was real nice to me and I really liked him. Everybody up there is real nice.

"And Coach Mullen is talking about building a championship program. And I'm all about that."

And to help build that championship program at Mississippi State, Lewis even took some time out of his day to recruit the caliber of athlete that is necessary to do that.

"I played 7-on-7 with (Lawrence County High School's) Matthew Wells," said Lewis. "I told him that he needs to come to Mississippi State with me because we are going to do some big things."
