Mississippi State pulls QB Chason Virgil’s offer two weeks before graduation


West Mesquite (Texas) High School quarterback Chason Virgil is preparing to graduate in two weeks. As of this week, he thought he was all set to enroll early at Mississippi State. On Thursday, Virgil was informed that the Bulldogs have made other plans.

Mississippi State pulled its scholarship offer from Virgil just 16 days before his high school graduation. Virgil committed to the Bulldogs on May 15.

Virgil, a three-star recruit, is a dual-threat quarterback who has thrown for 2,361 yards and 35 touchdowns this season and run for another 369 yards and eight touchdowns. He has led West Mesquite to a 10-1 record with a second-round playoff game upcoming on Saturday. His recruitment has now officially reopened, and his coach is furious about it.

Virgil will now have to scramble to change his future plans, though he should be able to find a home. While most schools probably have probably extended all of their offers for the upcoming semester, notes that Virgil had offers from schools like Clemson, Ole Miss, Florida, Nebraska, Texas and UCLA before he committed to Mississippi State. He’ll likely have plenty of offers and a massive chip on his shoulder.
