Former MSU guard will transfer to MTSU



Former Mississippi State shooting guard Jalen Steele will play his final collegiate season at Middle Tennessee State.

In September it was announced that the Knoxville, Tenn., would not be playing for the Bulldogs this season, which would have been his senior year. Instead, Steele chose to graduate from MSU this spring holding one year of eligibility left and transfer elsewhere.

The Tennessean reported over the weekend that Steele had committed to play for Kermit Davis and the Blue Raiders. Davis is the son of former Mississippi State head coach and player Kermit Davis Sr.

Steele plans to ink with MTSU during the late signing period in April and will be eligible to play immediately next season as a graduate student.

The 6-foot-3 Steele appeared in 78 games and drew 33 starts during his career. He averaged 8.0 points, 2.0 rebounds and had 72 assists during his injury riddled time at State. He suffered two torn ACL injuries and a broken wrist during his three years in Starkville.
