While State fans and recruiting analysts have maintained a steady air of positivity around whether or not Leo Lewis signs with MSU today, things nationally seemed to lean towards LSU more. Lewis, the nation's #1 inside linebacker prospect, is expected to make his announcement at 10:30 today, and things seem to be shifting MSU's way ahead of time:
Changed my @247CrystalBall from #LSU to #MississippiState for four-star LB Leo Lewis. http://t.co/jA1VowUL9D @Geaux247 @Bulldawgs247— Ryan Bartow (@RyanBartow) February 4, 2015
I think it will be #MissState for the nation's top-ranked ILB Leo Lewis: http://t.co/CBlG4K35sA #HailState #NSD2015— Steve Wiltfong (@SWiltfong247) February 4, 2015
#LSU fans, keep an eye on OT Toby Weathersby, WR Derrick Dillon and even DB Justin Reid today. I think #LSU misses on Leo Lewis, though.— Shea Dixon (@Sheadixon) February 4, 2015
Hearing that All-American LB Leo Lewis is expected to end up playing in state after all.— Steve Robertson (@ScoutSteveR) February 4, 2015
In case you missed it, I made a change on my Leo Lewis prediction last night just before 2 a.m. Oh, recruiting. (VIP) http://t.co/Gp58R7vyCG— Shea Dixon (@Sheadixon) February 4, 2015
Where a few of those tweets are from national guys, two of them are from LSU's 247sports writer. That site has been calling Lewis to LSU since he visited last weekend, so with them shifting and the overall feeling leaning more towards the maroon and white, you can't help but be excited as a Mississippi State fan.
Just two and a half hours until we find out one way or the other, State fans. Hang tight.
