SEC Football News on Saturday Down South

Former Arkansas commit might be a late signee for Mississippi State

Ravian Pierce is a talented tight end out of south Florida, and he’s currently working out a plan so that he can hopefully play Division I football this fall. And it may be in the SEC.

Pierce backed out of his commitment to Arkansas a few weeks back, and looked headed to Florida Atlantic–a south Florida program close to home. But he has flirted with the idea of making one last official visit to Mississippi State. The plan is not in stone, but it’s a possibility. And of course if that visit goes well, there’s always a chance he could sign a late letter of intent with the Bulldogs.

Pierce has been working with a tutor for the ACT this Saturday. He needs to get his score up.

“I’m not signing tomorrow… I might be next week, but will see,” Pierce told his hometown paper, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. “I didn’t visit because my tutor was testing me some more.”

Pierce is a high-end three-star prospect and is rated in the national top 350 by the composite rankings. As many know, Wednesday was actually the first day of the national signing period, meaning Pierce has several months to sign a letter of intent, and he can take official visits.
