Heavens Talks About His Visit to MSU

Jess Lanier senior Brandon Heavens picked up his first offer from Mississippi State, but the talented wide out committed to Auburn shortly after they offered him. After coaching changes at both schools, Brandon admits to having some second thoughts about his decision. He took an official visit to Mississippi State over the weekend in an effort to be sure about his college destination.

"The visit was great," said Brandon. "We did a lot of good stuff. The coaches are real cool. We just had a good time."

Heavens had the chance to reconnect with former teammate Harris Gaston as well as a friend from Bessemer who is currently on the Bulldog roster.

"Nick Bell was my host," said Brandon. "It was kind of crazy because we already knew each other. He told me he liked it a lot. He told me I would like it too. He was real cool to me. He should be a good time."

The guided tour of the Mississippi State campus was something Heavens enjoyed, but the chance to get to see the Bulldog fan base in action was high on his list of memorable moments.

"The facilities were nice," said Brandon. "The new academic center is real nice. The highlight was when we walked into the basketball game and they all gave us a standing ovation. That was real nice."

Before the talented wideout left the MSU campus, he had the chance to sit and talk with the Bulldog coaches about his options in Starkville.

"Coach Mullen and Coach Hud told me that no school in the nation can get me the ball like they can," said Brandon. "They told me they were going to play eight receivers, so I know I can get some playing time there."

While still committed to Auburn, Heavens reports things are pretty much undecided now.

"It's still real close between Auburn and Mississippi State, but I am starting to lean to Mississippi State more," said Brandon. "I like the new offense and I will have a chance to play early there.

"I am going to announce on signing day. My coach is getting something together at the school. It's still something I have to think about. I am probably just going to hold everything until then."
