Sound Off: Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen continues his roll in recruiting

The Mississippi State Bulldogs are halfway through fall camp and there’s no shortage of storylines coming out of Starkville. SEC Country’s Brandon Walker and Andrew Astleford discuss the latest in this edition of the Zaxby’s Sound Off as the Bulldogs get ready for their season opener against Charleston Southern on Sept. 2.

  • Entering the 2017 football season, Mississippi State’s schedule is regarded as one of the toughest in the country. So which game stands out to Brandon and Andrew as the most important game of the season? The guys have differing opinions on that, as each picks a game against an SEC West rival as the biggest game of the year (1:05).
  • Dan Mullen has been on a roll in recruiting, and that continued this week when Charles Moore, a 5-star defensive end in the class of 2019, verbally committed to the Bulldogs over the weekend. Moore’s pledge gives MSU a huge name to jump-start the 2019 class with, and continues the Bulldogs’ trend of signing elite defensive linemen in the state (4:00).
  • Daniel Jeremiah of wrote this piece centered on five players that NFL scouts are raving about, and MSU quarterback Nick Fitzgerald made the cut. Brandon and Andrew discuss Fitzgerald’s future and what he has to do to become a first-round draft pick. Andrew also has the gall to ask if Nick Fitzgerald could become as beloved as Dak Prescott to the MSU fanbase, and Brandon quickly sets him straight and lays out all the reasons that make Dak a treasure to MSU fans. (6:00).
  • Wide receiver remains a question mark for MSU heading into 2017 as the Bulldogs look to replace All-SEC performer Fred Ross. Brandon and Andrew take a look at MSU’s receivers, from senior Donald Gray to newcomers like Reggie Todd, to determine which one could step in and replicate Ross’s production (9:15).
