Originally, making a decision to sign with Oklahoma State he became the Pokes first 2013 verbal commitment, but heading down the stretch he took an official visit to Mississippi State.

He fell for what he saw in Starkville and after returning from his official visit admitted that he was set to decide between the two schools.

"Several young men at will sign their Letter of Intent to the College of THEIR CHOICE...Congrats and very proud of you all."
