Wide receiver Scott Austin has committed to Mississippi State, it has been widely reported.

The 6 ft 4, 180 lbs receiver out of Biloxi was ranked as the 14th best player in the State by Rivals.

“It came to the point where I had a lot of stress on me on where I wanted to go and who really wanted me at heart,” he told the Clarion-Ledger. “MSU has five receivers leaving and this is a good opportunity to probably start as a true freshman.”

He is the third player in the Dan Mullen’s 2013 receiving corps to be over 6 ft 3, the Clarion Ledger noted.

Southern Miss had also recruited Austin.
