Bates, who is one of the remaining targets on MSU's board, tweeted that he plans to commit on September 26th.
Obviously, that is still subject to change. Bates is expected to chose between Mississippi State, LSU, and Texas Tech. He will visit Tech on September 12th before deciding.
He is a 3-star prospect according to 247 and is predicted a 56% chance to chose MSU on the 26th.
