JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – Callaway’s Malik Heath and Aaron Odom verbally committed to Mississippi State on Saturday.
Odom is a three-star defensive end, according to 247Sports.com, and is the ninth ranked overall player in Mississippi for the class of 2017. He said the relationship he has with Bulldog coaches helped separate the school from other suitors.
Heath is a four-star wide-receiver who ranks as the fifth-best player in the state for the class of 2018. Heath said he fell in love with the crowd in Starkville the first time he visited.
