Mississippi State Flips 2021 JUCO Linebacker DeShawn Page

Mississippi State’s defense currently leads the SEC, and Zach Arnett’s linebacker friendly scheme has caught the attention of several JUCO players who see a spot for immediately playing time. Saturday saw DeShawn Page, a 6’2″ 215 pound athlete from East Mississippi Community College, flip his pledge from Texas Tech to the Bulldogs.

Page picks the Bulldogs over offers from Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, and Kansas State. He is rated as the the nation’s top inside linebacker by 247 Sports, giving MSU the top two players at that position, with Mississippi Gulf Coast CC linebacker Navonteque Strong coming in at #2. This commitment puts the Bulldogs at 20 players in the 2021 class, now ranked 27th nationally in the 247 Sports Composite rankings.
