Mississippi State received more good news Saturday night as four-star athlete Malik Dear became the Bulldogs sixth commitment of the week.

The 5-foot-9, 210-pounder from Murrah High School is the No. 4 prospect in Mississippi and the nation’s  11th-rated athlete and 114th-prospect overall according to 247Sports.com.

Dear chose MSU over offers from Alabama, Arkansas State, Florida, Ole Miss, Southern Miss and USC.

Last season, Dear completed 22 of 44 passes for 253 yards, four touchdowns and one interception while rushing 102 times for 1,012 yards and 16 scores. He also caught 34 passes for 628 yards and six touchdowns for the 5-7 Mustangs.

Dear is the Bulldogs 16th commitment for 2015 and their highest rated.

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
