Four-star defensive tackle Kevin McReynolds out of Washington (D.C.) St. John's College High took his fourth official visit this past weekend. The 6-foot-2, 281-pounder made his way to Mississippi State.
"I'm definitely glad I took the visit," he said. "The coaches and staff are definitely turning the program around. They are doing great things for that program. The coach is very knowledgeable. Coach Wilson is one of the best defensive coordinators in all of college football and they have one of the best defensive line coaches."
So, what did McReynolds do on the trip?
"I went over to Coach's house and had dinner," he said. "I hung out with the players and my host was Fletcher Cox, he's a cool guy and a future first round draft pick.
"He just told me to make the best decision for me and I'll ultimately be happy with it."
On Saturday, McReynolds checked out the academics and facilities more.
That was followed on Sunday by more time with the staff.
"It went great," he said. "Coach Mullen is definitely a knowledgeable guy, he strives for excellence and expects that and that's a good thing to have.
"Like I said, I was happy with the visit."
McReynolds plans to have in-home visits with UCLA and Syracuse on Tuesday followed by Mississippi State and Kansas State on Wednesday.
On Thursday, he'll head out on his final official to Kansas State.
"I hope it helps me make a decision and see where I want to be," he said. "After, I'll sit down with my family, rank the schools and ultimately make the best decision for me."
