Over the next two weeks, recruiting for Starkville High School athletes will be at an all-time high.
At least one of the big-time talents on the Class 6A State championship team ended his recruitment on Saturday and will be staying in the state of Mississippi.
Defensive lineman Lorenzo Dantzler, a 247Sports three-star performer, took a trip to Hattiesburg and Southern Mississippi with one thing in mind – to become a Golden Eagle. He made it known via Twitter that he would continue his career in a black and gold uniform with the Golden Eagles.
“I pretty much knew I was committing to Southern a few weeks ago,” Dantzler said. “The people down there treat you like family. As soon as I got there, everybody knew my name and accepted me. I like the academic plan and believe that USM is on the rise.”
