Wesson WR/TE Farrod Green commits to Mississippi State

Thomas Campbell-USA TODAY Sports

The big Copiah County native got his "dream offer" from MSU this past weekend and he didn't waste time in giving Coach Mullen his commitment after, pledging the the Bulldogs Tuesday night.

Two years ago during summer camps, Dan Mullen offered a scholarship to a little-known Houston, Mississippi defensive player named Chris Jones.  Jones at the time was barely ranked by most recruiting services, and he was very much off the radar for most major programs.  As anyone who follows recruiting knows, that changed drastically over the fall and winter months as Jones became one of the nation's highest rated and most sought after recruits before he opted to sign with MSU in February 2013.  While not every player will turn out to be a Chris Jones, Dan Mullen has clearly displayed his ability to spot raw talent, and his latest sighting, Wesson's Farrod Green, was offered this past weekend at an on-campus camp at MSU.  Green didn't need long after receiving the scholly offer to decide, as he committed to Mississippi State late Tuesday night.

Although Green is not ranked by any of the major recruiting services so far, his size and raw ability was enough for Dan Mullen to offer him.  Again going back to Dan's ability to spot undervalued talent, the offer means more to me than the rankings, which I'm sure we'll see rise over the course of Farrod's senior year anyways.

Green, a 6'4", 223 lb prospect, will switch from wide receiver to tight end in college, which would be a perfect fit in Mullen's offense where a tight end is expected to be a big part of the spread option passing game.  It also sounds like Green is ready to be a big recruiter for the MSU class of 2015 as well:

With relationships with most of the big-name prospects in the state, Green is now turning into recruiter for MSU in an already impressive class simply stating his primary target with one word: "Leo" (Lewis). [Bulldog Blitz]

Green becomes the sixth new MSU commitment since last week, and the 17th member of the 2015 Bulldog class.  Here's a look at highlights from his junior campaign:
