2015 Louisiana 4* DT T.D. Moton decommits from Mississippi State

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

The decommitment was expected almost from the instance than Moton committed to MSU, and today it finally came.

It goes without saying that it's wise to never put much stock in commitments from recruits over a year out.  In reality, all commitments are shaky until the pen hits the paper, but ones where the player is more than a year away from signing tend to be the most wavering.

That proved true for Mississippi State Friday, as 2015 defensive lineman T.D. Moton decommitted from the Bulldogs.

Moton committed to MSU back on November 16th while on an unofficial visit to campus on the weekend the Bulldogs took on Alabama.  Moton's commitment was always viewed as reactionary, and State fans and coaches as well I'm sure knew it would be an uphill battle to keep the talented 4* prospect on board for another 15 or so months.

Several factors seemingly play into Moton's choice, including his hometown's (Shreveport, LA) proximity to LSU, and the quickly mounting offers from the top programs all over the nation.  Even with those offers continuing to pour in, there's a strong chance that this talented prospect ends up in Baton Rouge in the end.

T.D. was part of an early strong push by MSU in the 2015 class, as State reeled in five-4* prospects for the junior class.  That number is now down to four.

Mouton now lists a top five of LSU, Alabama, Ole MIss, FSU, and Florida.  He says that he is no longer considering MSU, although I'm sure the Bulldog coaching staff will pursue him until the end.
