FULTON, Miss. - Ashton Shumpert has no intention of ignoring his neighbors. They certainly won't ignore him.

The athlete prospect from Fulton (Miss.) Itawamba Agricultural has shown strong recent interest in the two SEC schools just right around the bend: Ole Miss and Mississippi State. The four-star Shumpert will visit Starkville on Saturday when the Bulldogs host Tennessee. Shumpert visited Oxford for the Rebels' 30-27 loss against Texas A&M.

"I got down there about an hour before the game," said Shumpert, who is rated as the No. 242 prospect in the nation, the 26th best safety and fourth-best prospect in Mississippi. "Went down to the field and watched them warm up. It was a great game."
