Bulldogs Welcome Back T.D. Moton

Mississippi State made waves when they secured the verbal commitment of Woodlawn star T.D. Moton of Shreveport, Louisiana the first time. Moton committed to Mississippi State after visiting a game against Alabama. Moton's decision was met with immediate skepticism, but he maintained the pledge for a bit. Moton did open things back up eventually committing to Alabama, but things came full circle.

Earlier today, Moton announced on his personal twitter account that he had spoken with Dan Mullen and once again committed to Mississippi State. The news comes less than 24 hours after Moton visited Missouri and just over a week from taking an official visit to Mississippi State.

Moton was originally planning to visit Alabama the weekend of January 23rd, but then things began to change earlier in the month when the talented defensive tackle reported that he would be visiting Mississippi State the weekend of January 16th.

As the week went on, it was learned that Moton no longer planned to visit Alabama at all leading to an official decommitment this past week. College Station was expected to be the traveling destination of the Ark-La-Tex standout, but when those plans changed, Moton accepted a last minute invitation to Missouri.

Mississippi State offensive line coach, John Hevesy, is Moton's area recruiter on the Bulldog staff. Hevesy has recruited Moton for the better part of two years with contributions from defensive line coach David Turner and corners coach Deshea Townsend.

Moton is now the 28th member of the Mississippi State 2015 class and the first from the Pelican State to announce for the Bulldogs in this recruiting cycle.

Over the course of his recruitment, Moton has picked up offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Ole Miss, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, TCU and USC among others.
