    BL, do we know if these guys are going to be at the 3pm meeting friday when Mullen addresses the team?

    Also, with the recruiting buzz flying, is there any word from current players on their feelings about Mullen and the spread now that they’ve had the Christmas break to think it over?

    Go State!

    i think all of these players are going to contribute right away….i dont know much about watts but from what i hear, lawrence is a hard hitting LB type that might play SS….anybody know where he is probably going to play??

    Classes started today, so those new guys should be in the meeting. As for returning players, haven’t had a chance to speak with any of them yet.

    Langston was a qb in high school, he’s a talented athlete. I have also heard that Tyler Russell has cancelled his plans for other visits and will be a Bulldog for sure. If Chris Smith keeps his committment, that will be 3 recruits from theMeridian area this year. Love to see my hometown represented in Starkvegas.

    Wish Tyler could have been an early signee. Guess I should just be thankful he’s coming to State. 🙂

    He’s a smart guy and has been running the spread in high school….so he aughta be a little ahead of the curve.
