Ravian Pierce has had a busy couple of days, and he announced today that he’ll be one of those rare top-level prospects who chooses to go past national signing day. He was set to sign a letter of intent today at 1 p.m., but postponed it.
Pierce (6-4/215), a Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) product, had been committed to Arkansas until late January–but the two sides parted ways. He then seemed to be content with staying close to home and signing with Florida Atlantic. But then Mississippi State got in his ear. He will now take an official visit to see the Bulldogs before he signs a letter of intent with anybody. Pierce is a high-end three-star prospect and ranked the No. 340 recruit in the country.
Keep in mind, it’s actually a national signing period, not really a national signing day. Kids can sign for several months, it’s just that this is the first day of the period and the elite schools and prospects tend to wrap it up on the first day.
