After witnessing a Michigan State win in East Lansing on Saturday, Dooly County (Ga.) wide receiver…
Mumphery had his mind made up
"I committed to Coach Dantonio during my visit and I am going to Michigan State," said Keith Mumphery. The decision was not a spur of the moment thing for Mumphery. He has quietly been a strong lean to the Spartans for some time and he had his commitment planned before he left the small town of Vienna. "Me, my parents, and my grandparents have had many conversations about recruiting in the past couple of months and they knew Michigan State was it for me. I have had them on top of my list for a long time now." "I got on the internet and researched them after they offered me and everything I read on the computer about them came true over the weekend. Once I confirmed the academics, the atmosphere, and all that, I knew I was ready to make my commitment." He saw everything he needed to see in East Lansing and the two guiding him around were Greg Jones and Johnny Adams. He enjoyed his time with those two. "They really told me everything I needed to know about the school, the football program, and Coach Dantonio," said the Georgia native. "They told me Coach Dantonio was a fair man, a great guy, and that he really cares about his players. They said he develops relationships with all of his players outside of football and I liked that." "We all got along really well and they helped me feel comfortable there. Talking with them, getting to know them, and seeing that I would fit in well just made my decision easy." He will now finish out his career at Dooly County and prepare to be a Spartan. He lines up all over the field in high school, but he plans to be a wide receiver in college. "They recruited me to play receiver, so I will be focusing on that when I get up there. I think I can play up there at receiver and I like the offense I will be playing in. I am just going to work hard, compete, and see if I can get on the field early." Mumphery is solid in his commitment and he said he did not plan to take any other visits. He also reported offers from Arkansas, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Oklahoma State, Vanderbilt, and Wake Forest amongst others.
