Westwood HS (Memphis) Athlete Nikia Cathey commits to Mississippi State

MSU picks up its first commitment for the class of 2014 today - Spruce Derden-US PRESSWIRE

The Memphis speedster opted to commit to Mississippi State today, giving the Bulldogs their first for the class of 2014.

Westwood High School (Memphis, TN) athlete Nikia Cathey has committed to Mississippi State, Barton Simmons of 247Sports reported earlier today.

Cathey is speedster of the Jameon Lewis mold who will most likely come in and be a return man and slot receiver for State, much as Lewis has been in his career in Starkville. This past season for the Longhorns, Cathey [full stats] received 352 yards through the air and rushed for 352 yards as well on ground, but what stood out was his return yard average. Nikia averaged a robust 40.36 yards per return on punts in 2012 and 48.73 yards per return on kickoffs.

Although Mississippi State was Cathey's only offer so far, he has already been receiving a good deal of interest from Ole Miss, Vanderbilt, and Memphis, among other programs.

Also of note: Cathey was/is being recruited by Bulldog wide receivers coach Tim Brewster.
