Matthew McDougal talks about his USM visit

Southern Miss had several visits on campus to take in their annual Black/ Gold Spring game. Defensive End Matthew McDougal talks about his time on campus with

Sandalwood HS (Jacksonville, FL) defensive end Matthew McDougal was one of many prospects on hand for the Southern Miss spring game Saturday.  He took an unofficial visit, and came away very impressed with the Hattiesburg campus. 

McDougal, 6'2, 215, plays defensive end, but has enough speed to also play outside linebacker.  He's a nice fit for what the Eagles are looking for in the "wolf" position.

"I loved my visit to Southern Miss," he told

"When I first arrived the energy of the coaches stood out to me.  They were just straight energy all weekend long, and especially Coach Disch.

"I also loved the facilities and the beautiful campus."

McDougal was able to spend some time with Coach Disch and Coach Hopson.  

"They were telling me how exciting it was to have me on campus and that they like me a lot," he said.  "They also want me to come back in June to take another visit."

The talented prospect also said he expects Southern Miss to make him an offer this Thursday.
