Dan Mullen and Mississippi State got some excellent news headed into the Fourth of July weekend as they landed a commitment from 2018 Georgia offensive lineman Griffin McDowell on Friday.
The 6-foot-4 offensive tackle attends Lee County High School in Leesburg. He does not have a 247Sports composite ranking.

Mississippi State landed McDowell’s commitment against the likes of Indiana, Kansas and Georgia State.
With McDowell now committed, Mississippi State has two offensive linemen in its 2018 recruiting class and 12 total commitments. The Bulldogs have the No. 6 class among SEC teams for the 2018 recruiting cycle and the No. 35 recruiting class nationally.
The Bulldogs open their 2017 season against Charleston Southern on Sept. 2. A time has yet to be announced.
