#STATEF17M UPDATE CLOSEOUT
Per 247sports, below is the final list of 2017 Bulldog signees. The class currently ranks inside the Top 25 at 22 in the 247sports composite ranking, which is good enough for 9th in the SEC.
State’s 2017 class includes a record 13 early enrollees, highlighted by a strong class of JUCO defenders, and MSU’s QB of the future in Keytaeon Thompson. Added to that today were 11 signatures, keynoted by long time RB commit Kylin Hill, Starkville native LB Willie Gay, as well as some much needed depth along the offensive line.
There’s a chance this class could move up or down depending on how other teams finish, but for now, it’s likely that State finishes inside the Top 25 for this class.
For other tidbits from today’s signees and other action, we would suggest checking the @HailStateFB feed, as well as Scout and 247sports MSU affiliates (soon to be one site), and others.
#STATEF17M UPDATE 10
As you have likely seen since the last update, MSU has closed its class out with the signatures of special teams specialist Tucker Day and Aaron Odom.
Odom, as you might recall, recently switched his commitment to Louisville briefly. Over the last week or so, though, feelings around the MSU program were that they could bring him back in, and they were able to today.
#STATEF17M UPDATE 9
Kylie Hill is officially coming to Starkville. Hill is a 4 star running back out of Columbus that has been committed to the Bulldogs since May and is one of the highest ranked recruits in the state of Mississippi.
#STATEF17M UPDATE 8
Willie Gay is now a Bulldog! The coveted four star linebacker from Starkville is staying in Starkville! Dan Mullen beat out Michigan, Ole Miss, and LSU for Willie’s commitment. His commitment has moved Mississippi State up to 22 in 24/7 composite rankings.
