Mississippi State football starts in 19 days!

Gene Swindoll, 247Sports

We are one day closer to Mississippi State football. The 2019 season kicks off for the Bulldogs in 19 days, so let’s take a look at #19 Collin Duncan.

Duncan is a freshman athlete from Montgomery, Alabama, playing both sides of the ball at St. James School. The 6-foot, 195-pound athlete was rated as a three-star prospect by 247Sports, ESPN and Rivals. He also ranked as the 16th-best player in the state of Alabama and the 44th-ranked cornerback in the country by 247Sports, however he will be playing safety for the Bulldogs this year.

He recorded 63 tackles and a pair of interceptions as a senior at St. James. He also finished his senior campaign with 12 rushing touchdowns and two passing touchdowns. He helped the Trojans to a 10-2 record and was named to the Montgomery Advisor’s All-State first team and the Class 1A-4A All-Metro football team for his efforts during the season.

The Montgomery native intercepted one pass as a junior to go along with five rushing touchdowns and two passing touchdowns. Duncan showed off his ball-hawking skills as a sophomore, collecting a career-high five interceptions.

Heading into the 2019 season, Duncan shows some real promise at the safety position, and will be a newcomer to keep an eye on, and someone who can make an immediate impact on this Bulldogs team.
