Vicksburg High School football player Jaleel Fleming has signed a letter of intent to Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College.

Fleming, who was a significant threat in the secondary for VHS, signed earlier this year during the signing day period.

As a junior in 2021, Fleming led the state of Mississippi with 10 interceptions. Just a year later, he helped the Gators reach the third round of the playoffs for the first time in over 20 years while also clinching a district title for the first time in over 30 years.

Fleming was heavily recruited by MGCCC secondary coach Clarence McDougal during his junior season.

“We’re excited to have him join our program, and if he comes in and does everything he needs to, then I know we can get him to the next level,” McDougal said. “Our program is known for getting our players big offers, and we’ve had at least 20 defensive backs sign in the last four years.”

In high school, Fleming made the All-County, All-District, and All-State Teams, and he was selected to play in the Mississippi/Alabama All-Star Game.

“The process of recruiting him began when he started getting all those interceptions, and we could see there was something special about him as he kept playing,” McDougal said.

Fleming will soon be playing for the Bulldogs as workouts will begin in the upcoming weeks, and he will be working closely with Coach McDougal and defensive coordinator Brett Shufelt.

Over 70 football players from MGCCC have signed with four-year schools in the last four years, and Fleming could easily be the next one.
