The season might be over, but Mississippi State is still hard at work recruiting future Bulldogs. Landing three players on the All-SEC team this season will certainly help Mississippi State’s image, but a bowl game win in Charlotte, N.C. later this month could prove to be a tipping point for those recruits on the fence.
Here are three things to know:
- Class of 2016 athlete Nero Nelson committed to Mississippi State this summer, but it seems he’s second-guessing his decision. “I do want to get away from Mississippi, period,” he said.
- Four-star cornerback John Broussard was committed to Auburn before defensive coordinator Will Muschamp left the Tigers to become the next head coach at South Carolina. Now Broussard is exploring other options, including Mississippi State.
- Jeremiah Moon, a 4-star recruit out of Alabama has committed to Florida, but that hasn’t stopped the Bulldogs from pursuing the linebacker. “I’m still interested in them,” he said. “I wouldn’t want to close the door on anybody.”
