Crawford has a leader

Pensacola (Fla.) West Florida Tech three-star defensive end Nate Crawford visited Mississippi State in June and was very impressed by the school. He returned for another visit on Friday participating in Mississippi State's Big Dawg Camp event.
"It was even better," Crawford said of his most recent visit. "There was more competition there this time. It was a really good experience to see where I was as a player and to see what I needed to work on.
"I feel like I did real well," Crawford added. "I think I did great. The coaches said I did good as well."

During his time in Starkville, Crawford had an opportunity to meet and speak with Dan Mullen and his staff.
"I talked to all of the coaches while I was there," Crawford said. "They gave me advice on things. They talked to me about things I can work on. They also talked to me about how they feel about me as a player."
Crawford, who is just shy of double-digit offers, is closing in on a decision.
"Mississippi State is my leader," Crawford said. "I am getting close to making a decision. I think I will decide in the next two weeks."
Prior to visiting Mississippi State, the 6-foot-4, 260-pound defensive lineman had visited Auburn and South Alabama in July. He has no other visit plans as of this time.
