While Mississippi State's 2015 recruiting class already features 18 commitments as we enter July, there are still some major targets left on the board for the Bulldogs' final few spots. One of those names is Brookhaven's Leo Lewis, a linebacker who's being heavily sought after by nearly every school in the southeast, as well as the entire country. Currently, Lewis is committed to , but that hasn't stopped schools from at him as a hopeful addition to their own classes.
Fellow recruits have even gotten into the recruiting as well, and one of those players currently recruiting Lewis hard is commit Farrod Green, who is friends with Leo. Since he joined the maroon and white commitment class himself recently, Green has been on Lewis to keep visiting , and to hopefully end up there when papers are signed in February.
While committed players attend camps at other schools all the time, it was important to try and get Lewis to attend the Big Dawg Camp at , and that looks like it will now happen thanks to Green's efforts:

I have no doubt that the coaching staff will work hard to impress Leo when he makes his visit for the camp on July 18th. Lewis, a 6'3", 225 lb linebacker who is a consensus 4-star recruit and the #3 overall recruit in the state of Mississippi by 247 sports, holds an looooong, impressive offer list that includes , , , , , , , , and . Current recruiting writer predictions on 247's crystal ball feature have him at 86% to , 7% , and 7% . So you're saying there's a chance!
