One of the finest guards in the country, 6′-3″ combo guard Nick Weatherspoon, of Velma Jackson (MS) came off the board on Sunday, picking Mississippi State.
Weatherspoon blew up over the summer, accumulating offers from the likes of Kansas, Louisville, North Carolina and others.
Head coach Ben Howland has done a great job landing prospects in his backyard, and Weatherspoon, who joins his brother Quindarry on the roster, continues that trend.
Well-suited as a new age “scoring” point guard, Weatherspoon represents a quality pick-up and a legitimate top-50 prospect for a building Mississippi State program.
