    2015 DT Daron Payne Updates

    I looked and did not see an individual thread for Daron Payne. This kid is a beast, from Birmingham and needs his own thread. He has been dominant on the camp circuit and I have a feeling he i going to perform very well at The Opening. I really, really hope we get Daron's commitment and signature.

    He told folks today at The Opening his top 3 are Alabama, Auburn and Texas. He hopes to visit Austin soon.

    It looks like an in state battle. Not sure the appeal of Texas (as compared to places like LSU or FSU that are big time too and closer than UT).

    I don't think anyone knows what'll happen with Payne until he signs.

    Payne was in Starkville Friday for the Big Dawg event. His high school teammate Keith Mixon committed to MSU while on the trip. There was some talk a few weeks ago of them playing together.

    Payne told AuburnUndercover the below after the visit:

    Lately, 5-star defensive tackle Daron Payne of Birmingham (Ala.) Shades Vally has been talking up three programs Alabama, Auburn and Texas.

    But after attending the Big Dawg Camp on Friday, he said Mississippi State has made a move.

    Ive been feeling Mississippi State, Payne told 247Sports. Its just the coaches. I like the d. line coach [David Turner] and Coach [Dan] Mullen."

    Lately, 5-star defensive tackle Daron Payne of Birmingham (Ala.) Shades Valley has been talking up three programs — Alabama, Auburn and Texas.

    But after attending the Big Dawg Camp on Friday, he said Mississippi State has made a move.

    “I’ve been feeling Mississippi State,” Payne told 247Sports. “It’s just the coaches. I like the d. line coach [David Turner] and Coach [Dan] Mullen."
    Yeah, that's gonna happen...

    Just like the new MSU commit who tweeted about "bringing a national championship back" to Starkville - the Bullies wouldn't win an NC if they went 14-0 and their 15th game was the playoff final against defunct St. Bernard College of Cullman. They will always find a way...to always be the Bullies.

    Geeeze! I`m all for confidence, but surely the kid has to realize they`d need, what........ maybe 12 recruiting classes to compete for a NC at State??

    just to be very clear, Payne is in no way a Bama lock as some have perceived in the last 3-4 months. he has mentioned in several of his interviews that he likes Auburn and others very much. how much should we be concern, depends how caught up in the excitement during these camps. at this moment, I think it will come down to Bama and Auburn at the end of the day. he is a great talent for sure, huge upside- strong upper body, good use of hands and feet. he just needs to play with more pad level which can be taught . from what I have read, the UA staff has other DTs that they like very much and would get commitments from some if they really push. obviously, Payne is a priority so we will have to wait and see what will transpire in the coming months.

    Are you using the word "bullies" based on Sherrill's life experience he gave his team?

    Now y'all are catching on - I go back with the Bullies to when they were getting bullied by the likes of Houston to the tune of 74-0. Good to have a long memory to draw on when you're discussing MSU football tradition, past and future.
