Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen knows a way to a recruit’s heart: mom.
Three-star linebacker Tadarrius Patterson posted a photo of a handwritten Mother’s Day card sent from the charming Mullen.

Mullen is trying to stand out in a crowded field of suitors courting the Birmingham, Ala., native. Patterson has received 20 reported scholarship offers, including offers from SEC foes Auburn, Kentucky and Tennessee. The Volunteers, along with Louisville, are considered the leading candidates for Patterson’s services, according to 247Sports.com.
Perhaps this heartfelt note from Mullen will give Mississippi State a leg up in the battle.
