Louisiana Tech has made the state of Mississippi an important part of its recruiting base in football.
The Bulldogs recently landed a verbal commitment from South Panola cornerback Ephraim Kitchen.
The other Bulldog, Mississippi State, also offered Kitchens until he chose Louisiana Tech.
"Louisiana Tech has been there from the start and have been showing me a lot of love. It just feels like the right choice," Kitchen told Bleedtechblue.com.
"They just said they thought the environment, academics and the defensive scheme were good fits for me."
