Meridian High quarterback Tyler Russell is headed to Mississippi State.
The 6’5”, 195-pounder has given his verbal pledge to Coach Sylvester Croom and the Bulldogs.
Russell threw for 25 touchdowns and over 23-hundred yards this past season in leading the Wildcats to the Class 5A South State Championship game. He will help an MSU squad in need of signal callers.
Russell has drawn interest from a number of Division One schools, including Alabama.
