The 21st verbal commitment for Dan Mullen’s class of 2017 came from Copiah-Lincoln Community College’s Jaquarius Landrews.

Landrews is a sure tackling safety standing at 6-1 and 200 pounds. He’s one of three safeties in this recruiting cycle to commit to Mississippi State, but he’ll likely have the best shot to earn a spot on the two-deep rotation out of the three of them due to his experience.
Quick thoughts on @jaquarius987: Pulls trigger nicely on run read, sure tackler. Nice ball skills and closing speed. #STATEFam17— FWtCT Recruiting (@FWtCTrecruiting) July 28, 2016
Landrews picked Mississippi State over offers from Arkansas, Middle Tennessee, and Southern Miss. He was also being recruited by LSU, Minnesota, and Memphis.
The Bulldogs now have 21 commitments for the class of 2017, 7 of which are junior college players. The full list of commitments is below.
