2015 Mississippi State Football Recruiting Class Tracker

Stacy Revere

favorite this page as we'll be updating it from now until February 2015 to track MSU's football recruiting class for 2015.

As we wade through the long summer, now is a great time to set up a recruiting class tracker to watch the Mississippi State football recruiting class of 2015.  Mississippi State is out to a fantastic start, with 18 commitments through the end of June, but a lot can change from now until February 2015, so it will be interesting to watch as teams try to pick off talented members of this class.  As players come and go on the list, we'll track all of those chances, as well as keep an updated list of MSU's commits at each position group.
