SAN ANTONIO -- Four-star athlete Anthony Alford (Petal, Miss./Petal) has offers from out-of-state schools like LSU, Nebraska, Clemson, Alabama, South Carolina and Tennessee but feels he'll be happiest closer to home, thus the reasoning for his final three schools.

"I've visited Nebraska, LSU and some other schools, but it is between Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Southern Miss," Alford said. "I just feel like no one is going to show me love like my home state. I've got comfortable feelings with the coaching staffs of each team."
