Welcome to More Cowbell, SEC Country’s daily podcast about Mississippi State sports with host Brandon Walker.
This has been a good week for Mississippi State’s football program. On Tuesday night, coach Dan Mullen received a verbal pledge from MSU’s quarterback of the future, as 4-star prospect Jalen Mayden (Sachse, Texas) committed to the Bulldogs. While Mayden’s commitment has provided fans with cause for celebration this week, it also stands out as a sign that Mullen’s quarterback recruiting at MSU has been taken to a new level. Is this the Dak Prescott effect at play? Or is it simply that recruits have taken notice of Mullen’s ability to find and develop quarterbacks. To determine that answer, we talked with recruiting expert Steve Robertson of Scout.com.
We also talked with Steve about the ongoing Shaq Wiggins situation, which prospects could be next to commit to MSU and we discuss any lingering NCAA investigations within the state of Mississippi.
