Mississippi State Football: Which Bulldog wideout must step up against the Aggies?

A dangerous multi-threat in the open field, Shavers will have to be a factor in this week’s game against Texas A&M.

Desired in today’s game is the formidable combination of speed and height, as Tyrell Shavers possesses both.

At 6-foot-6, 200 pounds, Shavers is a big weapon with a quick burst. As his athleticism can put defenses on their heels, there is every reason to believe coach Mike Leach will frequently call his number from here on out. While he has not been the go-to receiver, expect Shavers to step into a more prominent role both along the sidelines and in the slot.

Following two devastating losses, the Bulldogs have an opportunity to get back on track against the Aggies in front of a limited crowd.

While Shavers is yet to have that breakout game, this game is the perfect opportunity against a highly-ranked team. Look for Shavers to have an impact and show off his talents.

Hail State!
