LB Holcombe picks Mississippi State

7/20/2013

Four-star prospect Keith Holcombe (Tuscaloosa, Ala./Hillcrest) pledged to sign with Mississippi State, according to multiple reports.

The 6-foot-3, 210-pound outside linebacker also holds scholarship offers from Georgia Tech, Jacksonville State, Kentucky, North Carolina State, Northern Illinois, Southern Miss, Tulane and Vanderbilt.

"It was the best fit for me and the main thing with my decision was finding a place where I felt at home. For me and my family, we all thought that best fit was at Mississippi State," he told AL.com.

Last fall, Holcombe recorded 116 tackles, two sacks, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and nine pass breakups.

The Bulldogs has 15 commitments for 2014. Holcombe is now their highest-rated defensive pledge.
