Pinson Ready to Earn it
Posted Jan 28, 2011

Terrell Pinson of Tupelo High School has some options for his college future, but he believes he can play with the nation's best. Now the talented wide receiver plans to prove it by walking on at Mississippi State. Despite having the opportunity to play on scholarship with other programs, Pinson plans to pay his own way and show the world he can compete in one of football's toughest leagues.

"They came to see P.J. (Jones) and I went over and talked to the Mississippi State coaches," said Terrell. "Me and P.J. really want to play together in college. It went well and I gave them my highlight tape."

After reviewing Pinson's senior footage, the talented wideout was giving an invitation to join the Mississippi State program.

"They talked to me about walking on, so I am going over there for the day tomorrow to talk to them about all of that," said Terrell. "I am going for the day and then coming home tomorrow night."

So far the Bulldog coaching staff have not talked about an offer for this season, but an opportunity may arise down the road.

"I am not sure about an offer yet, but I know for sure I am going to Mississippi State," said Terrell. "I wasn't really feeling some of the schools that were recruiting me and Mississippi State is in the SEC.

"I would love to get an offer from them, but I am not worried about that. I know once I get there I am going to earn a scholarship anyway."
