Don't tell anybody, but Mississippi State is quietly having a great recruiting cycle so far. The Bulldogs sit at No. 12 in the 247Sports Recruiting Rankings, and they're not done acquiring top-tier talent for 2015.
Head coach Dan Mullen has 18 commitments, and 14 of them have come this year. A trio of 4-star recruits are the headliners right now in athlete Malik Dear, JUCO receiver Donald Gray and defensive end Timothy Washington.
Mullen also has a great chance to sign uncommitted 4-star prospects such as safety Jamal Peters, guard Javon Patterson, athlete Ryan Davis and running backs Bradrick Shaw and Nick Gibson.
The Bulldogs are on pace to crash the SEC and national recruiting rankings party.
