Signing day looms ever closer, and in today’s Journal I have an update for you on MSU’s 2013 commitment class. This class is far from complete, at least judging by recent events. It figures to be a strong class no matter what happens on Wednesday.
In my story, you hear from commit Gabe Myles, a cornerback from Starkville High School. I caught up with Myles the other night, and things have been quiet as far as his recruiting goes. He committed back in June and has told other suitors that he has no intention of going anywhere else.
“I’m a solid Bulldog,” he said.
Myles said he hasn’t spoken with Chris Jones, the 5-star MSU commit who’s now considering Ole Miss. But Myles knows what Jones could mean to this class.
“I think it’s real important. We want to be the team where we have a lot of athletes and top players at every position, and he’s going to be a wonderful athlete here at Mississippi State when he commits – I’m going to say that. You have people that know how to win ton this team, so I think that helps, the program having winners already.”
• Gonna be a busy Friday. There’s a baseball press conference this afternoon, so I’ll have updates aplenty from that. The season starts in two weeks. I’ve also got a basketball advance to write, as MSU hosts LSU at 4:30 p.m. Saturday. And, I’m scheduled to interview assistant softball coach Alan Reach for my radio show. Oh, and I owe y’all some Blog Bag answers, so look for those later on.
