Mississippi State recently lost WR Malik Heath to the NCAA transfer portal.

On Thursday, the receiving corps reportedly took another hit, as a freshman receiver will explore his options.

Per Paul Jones of 247Sports, Theodore Knox entered the transfer portal and will look into leaving Starkville ahead of the 2022 season:

Knox appeared in 3 games for the Bulldogs in 2021, exclusively on special teams. He returned 1 kickoff for 31 yards — the only statistics he recorded in his freshman season.

Knox was a 4-star recruit in the 2021 class. The Texas native was the No. 39 receiver in the class and the No. 41 overall recruit from the state of Texas, per the 247Sports composite rankings.
