Mississippi State’s 2018 recruiting class grew more on Friday, as 3-star safety Shawn Preston announced his plans to play his collegiate career in Starkville.

The 6-foot-1, 195 pound Preston chose Mississippi State over finalists Texas Tech, Louisiana Tech and Vanderbilt. The 46th-ranked prospect in Louisiana also held offers from Arizona, Colorado State, Purdue and SMU.

Preston has good size for a young safety. However, he will need to add some muscle once he reaches campus.

The Saint James, Louisiana native is the 14th commit in the Bulldogs’ 2018 class.
