West Bolivar RB Kailo Moore commits!

Seriously, what is going on in Starkville this past week?

After a very, very quiet early 2013 recruiting season Mississippi State continued its tear, and I do mean TEAR, of commitment pickups this afternoon by grabbing a pledge from the top running back prospect in the state of Mississippi, West Bolivar rising Senior Kailo Moore.

Moore, a 5'10", 180lb running back becomes the seventh (7!) Bulldog commit within the last week, joining WR B.J. Hammond, OL's Deon Mix and Kent Flowers, DE Chris Jones, CB Gabe Myles, and QB Cord Sandberg.

Kailo, who is the 7th rated running back on the 24/7 network and the 75th best rated player overall, also held offers from Ole Miss, Southern Miss and Vanderbilt, while also receiving heavy interest from schools like Alabama, LSU and Florida.

Apparently Moore also plans to run track at MSU:

Rosebowl also had this to say with regards to Moore's potential:

That's a pretty big honor to even be mentioned as being as good as that man.

ALSO PLEASE NOTE: we don't expect this to be the end of the commitment flurry. Stay tuned to us and the guys in the business (Paul Jones, Bulldawg Junction, Genespage) to make sure you don't miss out on any of the new Bulldog commitments.
