Bulldog Recruiting Puzzle Near Complete

In two weeks, Coach Dan Mullen and his staff will see the official fruits of their recruiting labor in the form of signed national letters of intent. With the road work winding down over the course of the next two weekends, the picture the Bulldogs have been painting is beginning to take on it's final form.

Easier Being Green

Mississippi State fans got a bit of good news earlier this week, when it was learned that Scout.com four star linebacker Gerri Green informed the staff from Auburn that he would be sticking with his decision to attend Mississippi State.

As of Wednesday morning, it appears not only will Green not consider Auburn some close to Green report he is not planning to visit this weekend.

There is now talk of an unofficial visit to Starkville this weekend rather than official visit anywhere.


Hello Again

Cory Thomas was considered a Mississippi State lean through most of the spring and summer months, but the McAdory High School All-Star turned an about face and committed to Tennessee following an unofficial visit to Knoxville.

The tables may be turning back in the direction of the Bulldogs.

The three star defensive lineman is scheduled to take an official visit to Starkville this weekend.

The trip to break bread with the Bulldog coaching staff comes on the heels of a "good" visit to Clemson.

Tennessee is currently set as the final destination on Thomas' official visit dance card as he considers a signing day announcement.

There is talk, however, that Thomas may make a decision sooner rather than later.


Coming or going?

Taylor Stallworth seemed all set to visit Mississippi State this weekend, but it appears that those plans are now unsettled.

Stallworth is expecting a contingent of Mississippi State coaches today as he makes a final decision about a possible visit to Starkville.

The three star defensive tackle was one of the standouts at the Mississippi/Alabama All-Star game and was once considered a Mississippi State lean.

Despite a strong showing at the Big Dawg camp, Mississippi State elected to keep Stallworth under evaluation before extending an offer.

That offer came during Stallworth's senior season. After his official visit to South Carolina last weekend, it appears that the Gamecocks have taken some steps towards securing the S.S. Murphy standout's signing day autograph.

Taking Nothing for GRANTed

The recruitment of Clinton, Mississippi All-Star Grant Harris has been one that has been closely followed throughout the year.

The talented big man has played his cards close to his vest, but in two weeks he will be forced to lay them all on the table.

It was believed that Southern Miss may have worked their way into the inside lane in the race to signing day for Harris' signature, but times appear to be changing.

Harris is set to visit Miami this weekend, but the Hurricanes look to be running third in a three horse race heading into their scheduled visit.

The three star defensive end visited Mississippi State last weekend and left Starkville naming the Bulldogs his leader.

Southern Miss is scheduled to host Harris the final weekend of the recruiting process, but there is now some doubt that visit will take place.


You can take him out of the country.....

Jervontius Stallings is better known as Bunchy to friends and family, especially those back home in Stallings' native Summit, Mississippi.

Stallings, the son of a former Southern Miss player and the younger brother of a former Ole Miss player, is in line to make the in state trifecta should he follow through and sign with Mississippi State.

The talented offensive center grew up in rural Pike County, Mississippi where he rode horses and lived a pretty simple life.

With recent visits to Chattanooga, Tennessee and Lexington, Kentucky, Stallings has been on the move.

Mississippi State will get the chance to host Stallings and his family this weekend.

One of the top center prospects in the south, Stallings reports that proximity to home as well as friends and family will be a major factor in his decision.

With Colorado, Kentucky and Mississippi State considered the finalists, geography would certainly favor the Bulldogs.
