The nation's leading high school scorer, Victoria Vivians, has committed to the Mississippi State Bulldogs. Vivians, who is ranked No. 6 in the 2014 Full Court Fresh 50, averaged 39.9 points per game this past season for Scott Central High School in Forest MS, and is the first top 25 prospect landed by coach Vic Schaefer, who is in his second season with the Bulldogs.

The 6-1 wing, who in June narrowed her list to Louisville, Kentucky and Mississippi State, has cancelled several upcoming official visits after receiving an in-home visit from Schaefer this week.  

Vivians had scheduled officials to Louisville on Oct. 19 and Kentucky on Nov. 2, but will now only keep her official to Starkville on Oct. 5.

It's fair to say Vivians will be the face of the rebuilding process for the Bulldogs, who went 13-17 last season and finished 12th in the Southeastern Conference. The Bulldogs have also recieved verbal commitments from Morgan Williams, a 5-4 point guard from Shades Valley High School in Birmingham AL as well as Blair Schaefer, a 5-6 combo guard who averaged 22 points a game guard for Starkville High School, Starkville, Mississippi and is Vic's daughter.

Vivians, who is slated to participate in the Full Court Fresh 50 Invitational on Sept. 29, led Scott Central to a 33-4 record Mississippi State 2A championship and was named the state's Miss Basketball.
