Mississippi State gets its quarterback, Texan Chason Virgil is on board


Mississippi State landed a good one Thursday–a quarterback Texas, Clemson, Arizona State and several other schools coveted at one point in the recruiting process.

Once the nation’s domino effect worked its way through the top quarterbacks, things loosened up and Chason Virgil ended up being the beneficiary, picking up scholarship offer after scholarship offer through April and May. Virgil is a high-end three-star prospect according to 247Sports.com’s composite rating, and the No. 18 pro-style QB in the nation. He is 6-foot-2, 180 pounds and runs the 40-yard dash in the 4.6 range. In the end, Mississippi State was the perfect fit.

“I called (assistant) coach (Brian) Johnson and I had already told him two days ago that I wanted to commit but I knew they were so busy earlier in the week,” Virgil told 247Sports.com. “So he already knew why I was calling and he just asked me if I was ready to commit and I said ‘yes’.”

Virgil is the Bulldogs’ No. 13 commitment for the 2015 class, and is the ranked No. 13 in the nation as a class.

  • He is listed as a PRO style QB, but if you watch his highlight tape, he definitely has some wheels. Looks like a great pick up. Probably will need a redshirt year to get some muscle mass, but with the QB depth in front of him that shouldn’t be a problem, barring injury. Then, I’ve heard we lead for a 2016 blue chip dual threat QB. The QB situation at MSU has never looked so bright. Thanks DAK!! HAILSTATE!
