Mississippi State is used to LSU and Alabama raiding their backyard for talent. It’s always fun when the Bulldogs can return the favor, like they did this week.
Briston Guidry, a four-star defensive tackle out of Archbishop Rummel in Metairie (La.), is on board with the Bulldogs as part of the 2016 class. He is a 6-foot-2, 265-pound prospect and is rated the No. 240 overall prospect in his class.
“They say they love how quick I am off the ball,” Guidry told Saturday Down South. “I’m good with my hands and I have a high motor. It feels good to know I’m going to be playing in the SEC. To be the best you have to play the best.”
Guidry is the second 2016 commitment for the Bulldogs. The other is Orlando (Fla.) LB Jonathan Pollock, who has been on board for nearly a year, committing to Dan Mullen just a few days after his freshman season ended at powerhouse Dr. Phillips H.S.
