Five Mustangs signed Feb. 5 to play college football. It was the most athletes to sign at once in school history.
“More kids will have the opportunity to play at the next level from this class than any other class in school history,” head football coach Alan Peacock said. “I’m super proud of these young men.”
At a morning ceremony in the PAC, center David DuVall and cornerback Javarrius Shipp signed with Northwest Mississippi Community College, safety Jacquez Hardin signed with Coahoma Community College, and outside linebacker Jared Rayo signed with Millsaps College. At 4:30 that afternoon, left tackle James “Big James” Mitchell also signed with Northwest.
At Millsaps, Rayo said he would like to start all four years. DuVall said he intends on going to a four-year college after Northwest.
“I’d just like to become the best possible player and person I can be on and off the field,” Shipp said.
