2013 Fresno State football recruiting: QB Zack Greenlee staying with Fresno State

Fresno State verbal commit quarterback Zack Greenlee - Bud Elliot, SB Nation recruitingchange

Zack Greenlee has shunned Mississippi State and will stick with his commit to attend Fresno State.

Four-star quarterback Zack Greenlee has made it official (as official it can get before signing a letter of intent) by telling 247Sports that he will be sticking with Fresno State, and not signing with Mississippi State:

This tweet came after Mississipi State earned a verbal commit from dual-threat quarterback Damian Williams. The writing was on the wall for Greenlee to stay away from Mississippi State, because Williams was their second quarterback commit for the 2013 class.

Greenlee also would have been in a crowded group of quarterbacks trying to secure playing time, and also consider that he is not a mobile quarterback and would not fit in too well with the system that Dan Mullen runs.

This is a big win for Fresno State, and Greenlee will be battling for the backup spot as a true freshman with hopes of taking over for Derek Carr who will be graduating after the 2013 season.
