Fans who follow recruiting are most concerned with the next recruiting class, the class of 2020, but coaches have to recruit for now and the future. Hours after adding to the 2020 class, Mississippi State coach Joe Moorhead picked up his first commitment in the class of 2022.
The pledge comes from Tupelo, Mississippi TE Jacarius Clayton. He is currently listed at 6-5, 245 pounds. Clayton has not yet been given a star-rating or position ranking by 247Sports. It is worth noting only four players the class of 2022 have made a commitment at this time.
Clayton shared his announcement via his Twitter account, where he uses a photo of former New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski as his profile picture.
