HOOVER, Ala. | As the dateline tells you, I’ve made it to Hoover, where SEC Media Days will begin Tuesday. Prior to hitting the highway here, I was in Starkville to chat with a handful of football players. Hopefully you saw the first set of videos, and now I have three more for you.
Offensive guard Gabe Jackson, tailback LaDarius Perkins and tight end Malcolm Johnson all spoke with us about offseason changes and what they expect of the coming season. One change could involve Perkins being on punt returns, something he said he hopes to do this fall. He’s already got kick return experience, and he also figures to be a bigger factor in the passing game this season.
