2013 Signing Class: Mississippi State’s Target Zone

target-with-dartsMississippi State added 21 players from 9 different states on Wednesday and Thursday.  A breakdown of the Bulldogs’ “target zone” is below:

 

Mississippi = 8 recruits

Alabama = 3

Louisiana = 2

Texas = 2

Virginia = 2

Florida = 1

Georgia = 1

Maryland = 1

Tennessee = 1

 

In-State Signees = 38.0%

Out-Of-State Signees = 61.9%

 

Observation:

While Ole Miss was making national headlines with an eye-popping (and eyebrow-raising) signing class, Dan Mullen and crew were putting together what’s become a typical MSU type of class — plenty of in-state recruits with a solid overall ranking after the fact.  But there’s no question The School Up North stole the spotlight this year.  Mullen was even asked about Hugh Freeze’s class during his brief phoner with ESPNU.  Ouch.  But at least State held onto the state of Mississippi’s top-ranked player, Chris Jones.  If the big, five-star defensive end had flipped to the Rebels, a few Dog fans might have flipped their lids.
