Mississippi State’s recruiting class took a hit Sunday night, as three-star wide receiver Zach Farrar de-committed from the Bulldogs, he announced via Twitter.
“With this tweet, I would like to announce my commitment to play football and baseball at OU!” Farrar tweeted.
Farrar committed to Mississippi State on Jan. 21, but the Southlake Carroll (Texas) High School product took an official visit to Oklahoma this weekend and pledged his commitment to the Sooners following the visit.
“This is probably the toughest decision I’ve ever had to make. And yet, it is the most important decision of my life.,” Farrar tweeted. “I’m de-committing from Mississippi State University. There was not one single negative with Mississippi State from the campus, the town, the fans, the plays, the staff, the academics and the coaches.
“They are top notch in my opinion. Good people who treated me very well. That’s why this is so hard, but I must do what’s best for me in the long run. Thank you to the coaching staff as a whole for believing in me.”
Farrar is the No. 87 wide receiver in the country and the No. 82 prospect in the state of Texas.
Mississippi State now has 15 commitments, none of which are wide receiver prospects. The Bulldogs did pick up a commitment Sunday from three-star safety and all purpose back John Michael Hankerson.
