South Panola duo sticking with MSU

Posted Oct 19, 2010

The number one prospect in Mississippi committed to MSU Sunday night and woke up Monday with a change of heart. After having an afternoon to think things over, he went back to his original plans on Sunday. To learn more, click below.

"I committed to MSU again," added Nickolas Brassell late Monday night. "I am going to go through with it."

South Panola's head coach chimed in on the matter.

"I spoke to Nick and Kendrick Market and they are firm with their commitment to MSU," added Lance Pogue. "They are 100% MSU, and I am proud for them to make their decision. We sure wish them well and know they will do well. They are just great kids and come from great families. Nick had a lot of pressure on him but he wants to go to MSU, and we are happy fo him."

There was some undue criticism on the head boss of Mississippi's, and arguably the country's top high school football program, but Pogue knows it just comes with the territory.

"In no way I am out recruiting and never would I get in the recruiting business. I have enough on my hands trying to lead these boys in the classroom and out on the football field. I have a kid playing for Nebraska, Memphis, UAB, USM, Ole Miss, and now a couple headed to MSU. I want to run a program that when a kid says he is committed, he knows what the word commitment means."

Brassell and Market have helped South Panola to a 7-0 start and a top three national ranking.

Nicholas is one of two Mississippians that was selected to participate in the Army All-American game in January.
