Mississippi State picked up commitment No. 16 Saturday afternoon.
Ashdown, Arkansas, native LaDarrius Bishop pulled the trigger for the Bulldogs over the in-state Razorbacks. The 6-foot, 180-pound cornerback is rated a 3-star prospect, the No. 76 overall cornerback and the state’s No. 5 overall player, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings.
As Bishop explains in his commitment post, he had a plan before making a commitment. Mississippi State, Arkansas and Oklahoma State all fit the profile, but the Bulldogs eventually own out because of the “defensive coordinator and defensive back coach.”
Bishop committed to the Bulldogs via his Twitter account:
