QB Nick Schuessler, who led Grayson High School to the state championship in Georgia’s largest classification, told the AJC that he committed to Mississippi State on Monday afternoon.
The 6-foot-4, 190-pounder has been compared to former UGA QB David Greene by Grayson coach Mickey Conn, who was an assistant at South Gwinnett when Greene played there.
“It has been my dream to play in the SEC since I was little,” Schuessler told the AJC. “God opened a door for me, so I am taking it and running with it. I’m just chasing a dream.”
Schuessler visited Mississippi State this past weekend and spent a lot of time with offensive coordinator Les Koenning. Schuessler picked Mississippi State over Colorado State, and also had serious interest from Arkansas.
“Mississippi State is just where my heart was telling me to go,” Schuessler said. “I love Coach Koenning and I really felt like I mixed well with the players.”
As a senior at Grayson High School, Schuessler completed 121 of 181 passes for 1,753 yards and 19 touchdown while leading his team to the Class AAAAA state championship.
