It didn’t take long for five-star, top 15 prospect Reggie Perry to make his decision.

Less than two weeks after decommitting from Arkansas, the Thomasville, Georgia, native announced that he will be committing to Mississippi State. Perry’s father played for the Bulldogs in the 1970’s.

“I believe that Ben Howland and the coaching staff can help me achieve my goals as a student-athlete and become a pro,” he said.

The Bulldogs currently have a talented young nucleus, and the expectation is that the 6-foot-10 Perry will be joining the team as an instant impact front court weapon.
