Bulldogs add fifth commitment

Jameon Lewis thought about committing to Mississippi State as soon as he was offered last week.

But instead the 5-foot-9, 175-pounder waited until he was on the Starkville campus Saturday to let head coach Dan Mullen know of his intentions to become a Bulldog in person.

"After we got through with our 1-on-1 drills, I told Coach Mullen I was ready to be a Bulldog," said Lewis. "He shook my hand and said it's now official."

The Tylertown, Miss., product traveled to MSU with his father Roy Walker, a former LSU defensive back. Lewis plans on working out the rest of the summer with his father in preparation for his senior season.

"I want to learn from a guy that has played defensive back in the SEC," said Lewis. "I want to get better this summer so I can come back ready for the fall. I want to have a great senior year and then go and have an impact as a freshman."

Lewis plays quarterback for the Chiefs and led them to a 12-1 record this past year with their only loss coming to Louisville 26-21 in the Class 3A State Championship game. Lewis passed for 1,086 yards and 15 touchdowns and also picked up 1,216 yards and 10 more scores on the ground.
