QB Nick Schuessler, who led Grayson High School to the Class AAAAA state championship and who his coach compares to former UGA QB David Greene, has set up an official visit with Mississippi State for Jan. 27.
Mississippi State contacted Schuessler on Tuesday after JC QB Bo Wallace committed to Ole Miss over Mississippi State. The 6-foot-4, 190-pound Schuessler has an offer from Middle Tennessee State, where he will visit this weekend.
“Mississippi State said I was the No. 1 QB on their board, but that they favored [Wallace] because he was a JC guy who could enroll early and that’s what they needed,” Schuessler said. “They didn’t mention an offer. They just said to get out here on your visit and we’ll see what happens.”
Grayson coach Mickey Conn compares Schuessler to the former UGA QB because his tall and athletic build, the style he manages the offense, the way he plays under pressure, and his ability to win big games. Conn was an assistant at South Gwinnett High School when Greene played there.
As a senior, Schuessler completed 121 of 181 passes for 1,753 yards and 19 touchdowns.
