Some big time targets remaining in the Mississippi State recruiting class won't make their decisions known until National Signing Day.
As the final days before National Signing Day count down, we finally know when we will learn the decisions of several prospects that remain high value targets on MSU's board for the 2013 class. Yesterday, six prospects shored up plans to announce their decisions on NSD, with four of those six planning to do so on television. Here's the list of the six, including announcement times and channels for those doing so on television:
|Recruit||Rating (247)||Position||Hometown||Announcement Time, Channel (Times Central)
|Chris Jones||5-star||DE||Houston, Mississippi||9 a.m., local television
||MSU, Ole Miss|
|Deon Mix||3-star||OL||Batesville, Mississippi||none||MSU, UCLA, Auburn, Texas Tech|
|Mackensie Alexander||4-star||DB||Immokalee, Florida||10:15 a.m., ESPNU
||MSU, Clemson, Auburn|
|Tony Conner||5-star||DB||Batesville, Mississippi||9:45 a.m., ESPNU
||MSU, Ole Miss, Alabama|
|Fred Ross||4-star||WR||Tyler, Texas||none||MSU, Oklahoma State|
||none||MSU, Auburn, Rutgers, Others
Those are the big names left on MSU's recruiting board, sans 4-star JUCO DT Toby Johnson, who will decide after NSD. I included Mackenro Alexander, mostly because of his brother, and there's a possibility that they wind up playing together at the next level. I am not aware of his announcement being on TV, but if that changes, we will let you know.
