Staying home: Mississippi State flips receiver from Sun Belt school
It’s been a hectic couple of weeks for Rufus Harvey, but the wide receiver from Starkville, Mississippi finally settled, and signed, with his hometown team.
Harvey signed with MSU on National Signing Day after he decommitted from Arkansas State only after he committed to the Red Wolves on Jan. 26. Harvey is a 5-foot-10, 167 pound 3-star prospect, according to 247Sports.
Harvey is ranked the No. 3 wide receiver and No. 32 overall prospect in Mississippi by 247Sports, and as a senior, he caught 75 passes for 1,066 yards and 16 touchdowns. Harvey was also only the third 1,000-yard receiver in Starkville High School history.
It may have been a late decision for Harvey as he tweeted on Monday, “decisions, decisions,” and reportedly committed on Wednesday with his signature.
