Wide receiver Jamire Calvin said he’s transferring to Mississippi State, where he’ll rejoin Mike Leach, his former coach at Washington State.

He announced his decision on social media late Saturday.

Calvin, from Pasadena, Calif., was a four-star recruit in the Class of 2017. He took a medical redshirt in 2019 and has two years of eligibility remaining.

In three seasons with the Cougars, he appeared in 30 games and made 92 catches for 980 yards and five touchdowns.

The 5-foot-10 played two seasons under Leach.

The Bulldogs are scheduled to open the 2021 season on Sept. 4 against Louisiana Tech in Starkville, Miss.

Mississippi State finished 4-7 (3-7 Southeastern Conference) in 2020, which was Leach’s first season with the Bulldogs.
