Often times you see commitments and recruiting in general pick up in the summer months as camps and combine season gets into full swing. Mississippi State got a big summer time recruiting update by way of a commitment yesterday as 4* defensive tackle Briston Guidry committed to play for the Bulldogs.
Guidry, a 6'2", 265 lb DT from Metairie, Louisiana chose MSU over offers from Louisville, Tennessee, Ole Miss, and Southern Miss, among others.
Briston told The Advocate that he "just wanted to get it [his recruitment] over with so I can focus on my academics and Rummel football." While that may be the case, don't expect other teams to give up pursuit of the talented big man for the next 20 months until 2016's National Signing Day. As is the case with most Louisiana recruits too, I would keep an eye out for LSU and their recruitment of Guidry. Hopefully Dan Mullen and MSU can hold off any forthcoming charges from LSU, but cases such as T.D Mouton should make MSU fans cautious. Guidry is not Mouton though, so for the time being we should all be excited about the addition of a talented DT to the class of 2016.
Guidry becomes MSU's second commitment for the class of 2016 as he joins Orlando OLB Jonathan Pollock.
