FSU, Miss. State after Ole Miss pledge

It's been almost two months since three-star Olive Branch (Miss.) linebacker Alfred Dickens committed to Ole Miss but that hasn't stopped other schools from trying to sway him off his commitment.
"Mississippi State is still sending me a lot of stuff and Florida State has been trying to get me to visit," Dickens said.
But that hasn't changed things for the Mississippi native.
"I'd say I'm 100 percent committed," he said. "I love Ole Miss. I have an older sister who is already there so it makes it even better going down there with a family member. The whole staff at Ole Miss just feels like one big family."
Dickens missed camp earlier this month with lingering shoulder and hamstring injuries but said he's 100 percent now and ready for his upcoming senior season.
"It's a great feeling when I'm down there at Ole Miss," he said. "The coaches are great and it's a great environment."
Despite his 100 percent proclamation, Dickens hasn't ruled out taking additional visits in the future.
"I may go visit Florida State," Dickens said of his fall plans. "I don't know yet."
