ESPN Watch List QB to visit Starkville

Luke Ward continues to show strong interest in Mississippi State.

The ESPN Watch List quarterback from Decaturville (Tenn.) Riverside will visit the school on Saturday to see the Bulldogs host Tennessee. Ward also went to State's spring game and a camp in Starkville this summer.

"I like them a lot. Good football program," Ward stated via text message to ESPN. "Coach [Dan] Mullen is great at what he's doing."

Ward is still waiting on his first scholarship offer. The junior has seen interest from several schools.
