Yesterday, Mississippi State held their Big Dawg Camp, and the event paid dividends for the Bulldogs as it produced three commits for the Maroon and White.
The first prospect that committed to head coach Dan Mullen and company was class of 2018 defensive tackle Devon Robinson.

The 6-foot-6 Robinson also gave Memphis Tigers a hard consideration, due in part to the fact that it is located in his hometown, but eventually decided on the Bulldogs.
Robinson also held offers from Arkansas-Monticello, Austin Peay, Louisville, Northeastern State, Southern Illinois and Western Illinois.
Currently, Robinson doesn’t have a composite ranking in 247Sports’ database. However, he is ranked by the site’s in-house recruiting service as a Top 105 defensive tackle and Top 45 player in the state of Tennessee.
After Robinson, Mississippi State landed three-star cornerback Jaylon Reed.

The 6-foot-1 defensive back held offers from Georgia, Tennessee, and Ole Miss. Reed decommitted from the Volunteers in early June.
Reed is the sixth defensive back to commit to the Bulldogs during the 2018 cycle. Defensive Coordinator Todd Grantham is determined to build an athletic secondary and Reed is just the latest example of that.
The third prospect to commit to Mississippi State in less than 24 hours is 2019 dual-threat quarterback Jalon Jones.

Jones was seen as the Bulldogs’ top priority signal caller in the class of 2019. The 6-foot-1 quarterback is a three-star prospect from St. Frances (MD). He is rated as the nation’s seventh-best dual-threat signal caller and the state’s fifth-best prospect according to 247Sports.
Along with Mississippi State, Jones held offers from multiple top programs. He has offers from Alabama, Tennessee, Penn State, Virginia Tech and UNC.
With these recent commits, the Bulldogs now have 18 verbals in the class of 2018 and two in the class of 2019.
