"It went great. David committed to Mississippi State."
Oh, he did! I guess you are excited.
"We are. We are so excited. Our trip went so well. David just loved it. My husband said we didn't even have to ask the questions that we were going to ask because they had already answered them for us before we asked them. The coaching staff was just wonderful. I can see how the warmness just flows together there, because the people are just so nice. We love Starkville because the people were so warm. I could see why people said we would feel at home. It's true. All of it is true. It was a great trip.
"I wouldn't worry about David being in Starkville. He is our youngest and it is hard for momma to let go, but I wouldn't feel apprehensive about him going there.
"His host, Chris McNeil, was just super. We just loved him. In fact, we adopted him. (laugh). I said he needs to come down to Jacksonville and visit us. He was just as sweet as could be.
"(MSU offensive lineman) coach (Steve) Campbell is outstanding. He is really great. We also enjoyed talking to (MSU offensive coordinator) Coach Watts. And we enjoyed meeting Dr. (David) Boles. Coach (Jackie) Sherrill was very thorough. He was just so personable with everyone."
"It was a worldwind, but it was very organized."
Has he visited any other schools?
"No. In fact, we are supposed to visit Tennessee but we don't think we are going to do that."
That should do it. Thanks for talking with me.
"Thank you. Bye, bye."
