Mississippi State Bulldogs National Signing Day Predictions


Mississippi State Bulldogs

      • SEC TEAM RANK: No. 12
      • NATIONAL TEAM RANK: No. 36
      • LAST YEAR’S FINISH: No. 11 (SEC); No. 25 (nation).
      • NO. 1 CURRENT RECRUIT: ATH Jamoral Graham (No. 212).
      • FINAL TARGETS: TE Ravian Pierce (No. 340); DE Trey Carter (No. 387); DT O.J. Smith (No. 398); DE Cory Thomas (No. 561); DE Grant Harris (n/a).
      • WHAT SURPRISES LIE AHEAD?: The key here for Mississippi State is can it ‘flip’ some kids. Yep, flip them. Basically can the Bulldogs get kids like Carter (Oklahoma State), Smith (Alabama) and Thomas (Tennessee) to switch over to their side. There’s a chance it could happen, so that’s certainly something to look for on signing day. There may not be many live ESPN announcements involving Mississippi State on Wednesday, but if the Bulldogs got a few kids to jump the fence, that would give fans reason to smile.
      • SDS WEDNESDAY ‘DRAMA’ RATING (1 TO 5): We’ll go with a middle-of-the-pack 3. There could be fireworks, or it could be relatively quiet.

Editor’s note: All team and individual ratings referenced by Saturday Down South are according to 247Sports.com’s composite ranking, which averages all services.
