EMCC WR Corey Smith Commits To Mississippi State

Butch Dill

The four star JUCO wide receiver prospect chose the Bulldogs on his official visit over the weekend.

In an effort to replace wide receivers Chad Bumphis, Chris Smith, and others for the 2013 football season and beyond, MSU has made a strong push at signing a big and talented class of wide receiver prospects for the class of 2013. That effort took a big boost Sunday as **** East Mississippi wide receiver Corey Smith pledged to the Bulldogs ($).

Corey Smith, a 5'11" 185 lb receiver out of Grand Rapids, Michigan committed to State over an impressive offers list that includes Ohio State, Tennessee, Nebraska, Ole Miss, and Vanderbilt, among many others. Smith's commitment gives the Bulldogs six wide receiver prospects for the class of 2013. He is rated as a **** by 247 Sports, a **** by Rivals, and a **** by Scout. Smith is also listed as the ninth best overall JUCO prospect for the class of 2013 by 247.

Smith was teammates this past season at EMCC with fellow Bulldog commit Justin Cox, and Cox took his official visit this weekend as well with Smith and others. Smith, in the 247 article above, cited being able to play with Cox again as one of the reasons he chose State. It also doesn't hurt to have a great quarterback to throw you the ball, and Smith cited Tyler Russell's coming back next season as another reason why he was so high on MSU.

Smith led the Lions this past season with 51 receptions for 733 yards and nine touchdowns. He was named NJCAA All-American.

You have to be excited about the addition of Smith to the 2013 class if you are a State fan, but you also have to be excited about the job Tim Brewster has done so far in his time at State. Brewster is already getting the Bulldogs in the door with prospects we may not have before, and is an excellent recruiter. Glad to have him aboard, and hope he keeps reeling in the talent at the wide out position for seasons to come.
