Mississippi State had a historic day on campus Friday and picked up some of the biggest targets on their board. One of those targets was Bay Springs three-star athlete Jonnas Spivey. After a long recruitment and offers from Tennessee, Southern Miss and others, Spivey pulled the trigger on a long awaited commitment.
"I was just ready to get it over with," Spivey said. "I've been thinking about it for a long time. I sat down with Jamal (Peters) and told him that it was time for us to do it. I said if everybody came together in this class then we can make something special."
Spivey arrived earlier in the day and headed straight towards Head Coach Dan Mullen's office to tell him the good news. His future coach was overjoyed to say the least.
"Coach Mullen thought I was joking at first," Spivey said. "When I told him I wasn't, he jumped up and grabbed me and gave me a hug. He was really happy."
As for the other home state school, Spivey expects that he thinks they'll come into the picture. He said that's not going to be an issue.
"It wouldn't affect it at all," Spivey said on if the Rebels came calling. "I'm 100% committed to Mississippi State and making the class the best in the country and winning a National Title."
Spivey now prepares for his final season at Bay Springs and he feels he has a special year on the way.
"Our team is going to shock the world this year. We've got a new coach and we're going to surprise a lot of people. We're a lot better than people think we'll be."
