Fort Pierce, Florida big man is set to sign with Mississippi State.

Moments ago, Fort Pierce Central High School (FL) offensive lineman Stewart Reese announced that he would be spending his college years in Starkville, Mississippi. The Bulldogs were one of the more recent suitors in Reese's recruitment, but after an official visit to Mississippi State, the four star offensive guard has seen enough.

The Bulldogs simply had to have some talented big men in the 2016 signing class. With Reese's Monday Maroon and White declaration, it appears the Bulldogs are poised to close with a flurry of big blockers in the final days.

Reese picked Mississippi State over offers from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Ole Miss, Syacuse and many others. All told, the offfer sheet totals over two dozen tenders. 

The scout National 300 member joins Philadelphia, Mississippi standout Greg Eiland and All-State and All-Star selection Dareun Parker DeSoto Central (MS). That talented trio is hopeful that a pair of other targets scout four star Scott Lashley of West Point, Mississippi and Louisiana All-Stater Lloyd Cushenberry join their ranks later in the week,

Lashey is set to announce his decision at a 4 PM media event on Tuesday at his high school. 

Cushenberry's announcement plans are undecided at this time, but a signing day event is schedule for Wednesday at Dutchtown High School.

The commitment from Reese is a big one for the Bulldogs who looked to go offensive line heavy in the 2016 class. With a final signing class expected to settle around 20 signees, 25 percent or so of those will be dedicated to the offensive line. 

The added emphasis on the Bulldog front is certainly positive news for Bulldog fans who were eager to see some talented reinforcements added to the roster.
