It’s never too early to get a head’s start on recruiting…even when it means the 2019 cycle.

Mississippi State and Dan Mullen received a verbal commitment from 2019 prospect Jarrian Jones on Monday evening. The athlete announced his pledge via his personal Twitter account:

Jones hails from Northwest Rankin High School in Flowood, Miss. The 6-foot-1, 185-pound safety is clocked at 4.5 in the 40-yard dash.

There’s more than two years until Jones will enroll at any university. With that said, credit Mullen and his staff for getting involved with this talented prospect early.
