Bulldogs Add Depth at QB with Walk-On Addition of Jamil Golden

With football season less than 3 months away, State received great news with regards to its Quarterback position depth yesterday. As reported by Paul Jones with Bulldogs24/7, Memphis Ridgeway Quarterback Jamil Golden (6'4", 206 lbs.) has enrolled at Mississippi State for the first summer school term and will join Dan Mullen's football team as a backup up Quarterback this fall.

This is huge news for State's team, as the loss of Dylan Farve last December left the Bulldogs with just two experienced QB's on the roster in Tyler Russell and Dak Prescott. The Bulldogs added GA QB prospect Nick Schuessler in the February signing period, but the addition of Golden even further bolsters the depth at the signal caller position.

Golden, the 42th ranked player in the state of Tennessee last season, was being heavily recruited by Arkansas and Vanderbilt, and had offers from both schools as well as Memphis, Arkansas State, and others. It is believed that Golden simply waited too long to respond to the Arkansas and Vanderbilt offers, and when he neared a decision both schools had filled their needs at QB.

Golden threw for 1700 yards and 17 TD's in his senior season while rushing for another 400+ and 6 TD's. In his Junior campaign, Golden threw for 2300+ yards and 25 TD's.
