Two former Mississippi State football commitments have now committed elsewhere.

The Bulldogs parted ways with Madison-Ridgeland Academy offensive lineman Sean Rawlings on Sunday following the 6-foot-5, 285-pounder’s official visit to Oxford this past weekend.

Rawlings would commit to Ole Miss a few hours later. He had been committed to MSU since Oct. 3 and took an official visit to Starkville Jan. 17-19.

The Bulldogs first commitment for the 2014 class, Nikia Cathey, also made a commitment on Sunday to Appalachian State following an official visit there.

The 5-foot-8, 175-pound athlete from Memphis, Tenn., committed to Mississippi State on Jan. 10, 2013 but had his scholarship offer pulled on July 23. Cathey took an official visit to Western Kentucky and also had offers to Austin Peay, Indiana and Middle Tennessee.

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.

    Congrats to both on going where they want to be. I wish the meaning of the word commit hadn’t changed so drastically but I am glad that State will have players that really want to be here.
