Mississippi State hosted many of its commitments and recruiting prospects for its Big Dawg Camp on Friday. The Bulldogs knew it would be an active night for them as they reviewed prospects and checked in on recruits.
Dan Mullen though made the most of this time though. The Bulldogs turned it into a big recruiting day as his team secured three commitments from the event, according to Will Sammon of The Clarion Ledger. Mississippi State picked up commitments from Florida offensive lineman Cordavien Suggs, junior college defensive lineman Deion Pope and junior college offensive lineman Tyre Phillips.
Pope is a four-star defensive line prospect rated the seventh best prospect in the country for the class of 2017 and the second best defensive tackle, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings. Pope attended Copiah-Lincoln Community College last season. He sat out the season to get his academics in order.
Mississippi State also got some much needed help on the offensive line Friday.
Suggs is a 6-foot-6, 282-pound three-star offensive line prospect. He is rated the 100th best offensive line prospect in the country according to 247Sports Composite Rankings. It could turn out to be a good get with the Bulldogs lacking a ton of depth on the offensive line in this recruiting class.
That should make Tyre Phillips a big commitment too. Phillips is a 6-foot-6, 350-pound offensive lineman who played at East Mississippi Community College last year. He was fielding offers from Colorado and Georgia too. He was unranked by 247Sports Composite Rankings.
