FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.- Rivals250 defensive end Jazzmen Guy of Hazlehurst (Miss.) High, is excited about getting the opportunity to compete against some of the nation's top players this week at the inaugural Offense-Defense All-American Bowl.
"It's a good thing going on here," he said. "There are a lot of different people here from all over the country, from the different states. It looks like it's going to be a good game."
Guy, the nation's No. 12 strongside defensive end prospect, says he's just as good at rushing the passer as stopping the rush.
"All of those areas are strengths," he said.
The 6-foot-4, 250-pound Guy committed to Mississippi State early in the process. Southern Miss, Nebraska, Miami, Florida and South Carolina all have made a run at Guy, but he remains firm to State.
"I'm just going to visit Mississippi State," he said. "My coach from last year was like a dad to me. The coaches at Mississippi State act the same way toward me, so that's why I like Mississippi State."
Brick Haley coaches the defensive line in Starkville.
"He's a good defensive line coach," he said. "He just acts like we do."
Guy has one goal for the week of preparation for the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl, which kicks off at 7 p.m. Saturday and will be televised live by ESPNU.
"Do my best," he said.
