Mississippi State wide receiver Malik Heath Announces Transfer to Ole Miss

OXFORD, Miss. — Mississippi State wide receiver Malik Heath announced Wednesday via Twitter he is transferring to Ole Miss.

Heath, a former four-star recruit, will have one year of eligibility remaining.

Heath notched 34 receptions for 442 yards and five touchdowns last season, following the 2020 season where he tallied 37 catches and three TDs.

The Jackson, Miss. native, was involved in a serious car accident in December that kept him from participating in the Liberty Bowl.

Heath’s road to Ole Miss

Heath signed with Mississippi State in the 2018 recruiting cycle and at the time was rated as one of the best overall high school prospects in the state of Mississippi. Ultimately, however, Heath attended junior college for two seasons before then going to play for the Bulldogs.

He played two seasons at Copiah-Lincoln Community College before then signing again with State. At that time, he was rated as the No. 9 junior college prospect in the 2020 recruiting cycle. He chose State over: Florida, Ole Miss, Kentucky and South Carolina.

Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin has gone heavy on the transfer portal, notching one of the top classes in the nation that includes quarterback Jaxson Dart (USC), running back Zach Evans (TCU), tight end Michael Trigg (USC), wide receiver Jordan Watkins (Louisville) and former USC tight end Michael Trigg.
