Four-Star Center Abdul Ado Commits to MSU

Ben Howland closed out fall recruiting season with another commitment from an elite prospect.

Last night's game may have been a debacle, but we got yet another reminder that more help is on the way:

Ado, a 6' 11" center out of Chattanooga, Tennessee, committed to Mississippi State Monday evening, choosing the Bulldogs over offers from Louisville, Memphis, Vanderbilt, and LSU, among others. Most recruiting services list Ado as a four-star, Top 100 prospect—ESPN has him as the 68th best player in the nation, 247Sports has him at 73rd, and Rivals ranks him at 77th. (ESPN and 247Sports also both rank him as the 9th best center prospect in the nation.)

If you feel like basking in some media praise for Ado, Howland, and the 2016 class, here is some dap from NBCSportsESPN, the Clarion Ledger, and Rivals.

Just in case you forgot, our 2016 class is ridiculously talented and deep. According to 247Sports, all six of the players we have in that class are among the Top 150 players in the country, five are four-star prospects, and all six are among the twenty best players at their respective positions. (Three—Kegler, Herard, and Ado—are in the top ten at their positions. And yes, with Ado and Herard, we have two of the top ten center prospects in the country.)

Wish the good news on the recruiting front could've been matched by another win on the court, but so it goes.
