The 6' 0", 195 pound athlete is not
only one of the top players in the state of Mississippi, but also one of the top
in the country.
The Ole Miss commit is ranked by Scout.com as the #4 safety
prospect in the country but he could play cornerback or running back just as easily
on the next level.

football smarts, and toughness it takes to not only make it on the college level
but to make an immediate impact.
Darius Barksdale was injured in
the 2nd quarter with a stinger to the shoulder, but he still managed to rush for

component to the Tiger's 64 game wining streak.
The 5' 11", 207 pound
defensive back switched back and forth between cornerback and safety during South
Panola's 42- 7 victory over Grenada.
He also got in a few snaps at tailback
after his first cousin, Darius Barksdale, went down with a sprained shoulder
in the first half. Bud took advantage of the opportunity as he rushed for close
to 100 yards and 1 TD reception on only 4 carries and 1 pass reception.
it was on defense where the Ole Miss commit made his biggest impact, as he turned
in a team high 14 tackles and took back a pick for a 70 yard TD.
opinion, Bud is one of the more underrated players in the South. He is physical
enough to handle the safety or maybe even the outside linebacker slot on the next
level but is also athletic enough to be considered the top corner in the Magnolia
state this season.

All-State selection, Cameron Wagner.
How can a player who was the
only sophomore to make the Clarion Ledger's All-State team, that also plays
for the Magnolia state's most storied program, be overlooked?
