Mississippi State Adds John Riek

Kurt Wirth@Kurt_WirthCorrespondent IMay 3, 2009

Just when you thought the Bulldogs had ended their recruiting after signing an extra scholarship in highly-touted big-man Renardo Sidney, today brings word that John Riek, an elite 7′2″ former top-five prospect and No. 1 ranked postgraduate prospect, has committed to State.
This puts MSU with two extra scholarships, possibly suggesting that outstanding junior Jarvis Varnado may have decided to stay in the NBA draft. Either way, MSU will need to shed at least one player, possibly sending three-star big-man Wendell Lewis to prep school for a year.

If Varnado returns, the Bulldogs should be a lock for the preseason Top 15 next season, if not better.
