Landry-Walker High School wide receiver signed to play at Mississippi State University on Wednesday morning in a ceremony at his high school.

Jason's decision came on the first day of the NCAA's newly implemented early signing period.

His final three choices were LSU, Mississippi State and Kansas.

Jason, listed at 6-foot-3, 210 pounds, is rated a 4-star recruit by the recruiting website 247 Sports.

He has already completed his high school course work and will enroll in college in January.

"I'll get a head start and get a chance to go in there and get acclimated on the field," Jason said. "Why waste time? I can go ahead and get in there and start to grind."

Jason originally committed to LSU as a sophomore, then de-committed and committed to Kansas, where former Warren Easton High School coach Tony Hull is now an assistant coach.

Jason recently de-committed from Kansas , although he didn't completely remove him from his list of finalists.
