Mississippi State added another playmaker to its 2015 fold on Tuesday as three-star athlete Deddrick Thomas became the Bulldogs 10th commitment.
The 5-foot-9, 170-pounder from Memphis is rated as the No. 16 prospect in Tennessee and the nation’s 52nd-best at the “athlete” position according to 247Sports.com.
Thomas also had offers from Cincinnati, Duke, Marshall, Memphis, Middle Tennessee, Ohio, Ole Miss, South Alabama, Southern Miss and Troy.
Thomas is expected to be a slot receiver in college.
Last season Thomas helped lead Central High School to an 8-4 record and into the quarterfinals of the Class 6A State Playoffs.
