Mississippi State’s 2012 class received a nice boost on Monday night when it received a commitment from Denico Autry.
The defensive end from East Mississippi Community College in Scooba, Miss., told 247Sports.com he had grown tired of the recruiting process. Autry chose Mississippi State over Tennessee and Auburn.
“I called the Mississippi State coaches (Monday) night and I told them what I wanted to do,” Autry told the website. “They said they were all for it and got real excited. It was getting real hectic with all these schools coming in on me late and I got tired of it. I just like my window of opportunity at Mississippi State and I didn’t want to pass that up.”
Autry, who plans to enroll at Mississippi State in January, is considered the nation’s second-best junior college prospect by 247Sports.
Autry’s teammate, defensive tackle Damien Jacobs, is committed to Tennessee but is still considering Mississippi State, Florida, Texas A&M and Texas Tech. Jacobs, who will also enroll at his next school in January, plans to announce his final decision on Dec. 21.
Jacobs told MrSEC via text message he’s “not sure” if his decision will be affected by Autry’s commitment to Mississippi State.
