While some BCS programs are still waiting on their first commitment for the class of 2015, Mississippi State already has nine of them.
Yep, nine of them. Good enough for a tie with West Virginia and LSU for the nation’s largest class. And the Bulldogs have a nice, lofty No. 6 national ranking for the group, too. Just consider this staff a bunch of ‘early risers’ as they’ve jumped out ahead of most people.
The gem of the group is 6-foot-3, 200-pound in-state defensive end Timothy Washington. He’s a four-star prospect.
“I’ve grown to know coach (Dan) Mullen over the past couple of months,” Washington told Saturday Down South. “He’s a great coach. He’s very welcoming and treats me very well and makes me feel at home. The coaching staff at Mississippi State treats me great.”
The Bulldogs are off to a nice start. Four of the pickups have come in the past three weeks.
