Derrick Milton Chooses MSU
I have a few sleepers on my list in this 2011 Class and Milton is one of them. Milton is a 3 Star RB, who spent his Senior year at Hargrave Military Academy to improve his academics. Milton is 5-11 and weighs just over 200 lbs, and has the tools to be a quality back. Quick feet, patient behind blockers, explosive even on weak side runs, quick to the edge, and has enough speed to pull away in the open. In his own words: "I liked Mississippi State from the beginning. When I went to the camp I really liked everything about it and then after spending the weekend down there it was just time. I·am not going to visit Tennessee this weekend. I am done with recruiting and I am committed to Mississippi State." Nice pick up for State! Welcome aboard Derrick.
Devaunte Sigler to Decide Today: Bulldog or Tiger?
Today is the day that Devaunte Sigler will decide between MSU and Auburn. Sigler is a 3 Star recruit and is ranked as the #44 DE in the country. Sigler 6-3 and weighs in at 250 lbs, with a 4.8- 40 time. "At Auburn and Mississippi State I feel like I am at home because of the environment and the people I am around there." Sigler will make the decision at his high school in Mobile. Hope to see ya in Maroon and White Devaunte!
Kevin McReynolds High on MSU
We'll see how things shake out, but after this weekend the #24 DE in the country (3 Star) was quite impressed with Mullen and MSU. He still has KSU, UCLA, Oregon, Maryland, and Syracuse on his list. He visits KSU on Thursday, but will announce his choice at the US vs The World game this weekend.
CJ Johnson to Sign with TSUN
Well boys, here we go again on the recruiting trail. Yesterday, Philly LB CJ Johnson, who was State's first commitment for this 2011 signing class (2009 verbal), made it known that he plans to sign with rival Ole Miss on Signing Day (Feb. 2). After a long commitment to MSU, it appeared that if anyone was going to steal away the state's #1 recruit when he re-opened his recruitment, it would be LSU. After 2 face to face visits with Johnson in the last 3 weeks, Les Miles and staff seemed somewhat confident in the relationship they had built with the Johnson family. MSU fans such as myself, were just holding out that CJ would choose the top program in Mississippi, and he'll just have to deal with the fact he didn't- every Thanksgiving weekend. Anyway, here's where I laugh, shake my head, and do my best to consider an 18 yr old's train of thought. You have to wonder how TSUN is recruiting so well, but I have to chalk this up to recruits having the opportunity to play immediately and some under-the-table dealings we'll probably never hear about. Sorry, I mean what home game could have possibly impressed a TSUN recruit this season? Was it the Auburn whooping, or the awesome loss to Jacksonville State? I know, it was that Homecoming win vs Lafeyette right? I'll go with "What are under-the-table dealings for $500 Alex!"
Tobias Singleton Faces Criminal Charges
Another TSUN recruit, Tobias Singleton, made the news yesterday as well, but let's just say it's not the kind of attention you want being drawn to your program. Singleton is facing possible criminal charges, after being accused of punching his ex-girlfriend and doing damage to her mother's car. At this time, Tobias' lawyer is claiming that the story is false and that the incident happened over a month ago. "Steve Montagnet, the attorney for Tobias Singleton, issued a statement a few minutes ago in which he says the names of Singleton and his family are being "disparaged" by the girlfriend. Montagnet says the incident grew from Singleton's intention to end the relationship, that the girlfriend escalated the incident by hitting Singleton's car with a tire jack. There are witness to confirm this, he said."- Parrish Alford (DJ)...The lawyer went on to add that "The girlfriend alleged that Tobias assaulted her and blamed the damage to her car on Tobias and his family. After observing the girl and conducting interviews, the police found there was no cause to arrest Tobias or any member of his family,”- (DJ)...Singleton who at one time was eyeing MSU, made his final decision to become a Rebel a few weeks ago on Nat'l TV. It will be interesting to see how this all turns out.
Your thoughts on recruiting thus far?
