Since his arrival five years ago, Dan Mullen has made it a point to sign the top in-state talent at Mississippi State.

Friday night, Mullen and the Bulldogs received a commitment from the top prospect in the Magnolia State as Bassfield four-star safety Jamal Peters made his pledge.

The 6-foot-3, 200-pounder is rated the No. 44 overall player in the country and the nation’s third rated safety according to the 247Sports.com composite rankings.

Peters picked MSU over offers from Alabama, Auburn, California, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Louisiana Tech, Louisville, LSU, Ole Miss, Southern Miss, TCU, Tennessee and Texas A&M.

As a junior last season, Peters tallied 72 tackles, nine for loss, five sacks and two fumble recoveries for the Yellow Jackets. Peters led Bassfield to a 15-1 record and a Class 2A State Championship.

Peters is the Bulldogs 13th in-state commitment for 2015 and its highest rated overall in the class.

    Now we fishing with the right bait.Look what we reeled in,lol.I sent Peters aka Koolaid kid a message on FB telling him to sign with them Dawgs.Some say he should play wr,but I see him playing the same position as Matt Wells LB/S=Dawg Safety.I know Leo Lewis decommitted from Bama,so Peters might be coaxing him to sign with them Dawgs!This is the day Im happy to be a Dawg fan!

      You’re not supposed to have contact with recruits. Looks like you just committed a recruiting violation!

        What are you talking about? Peters signed a letter of intent. Top high school players always try to convince other top athletes ( friends ) to come play on the same team. No violation here.

          Up above Mike Davis says HE “sent Peters aka Koolaid kid a message on FB telling him to sign with them Dawgs”. Fans are not allowed to do that. It is a violation.
          And Peters didnt sign a LOI. He can’t do that until February! Right now he and the others have verbally commiitted to msu. And half of these guys will likely change their tune by then…

            Commitments mean nothing and neither does class ranking. It’s about how they get coached and developed. U remember Coach O, right???? How good was TSUN then? How about last year, how good were they then…when they had 3 “best recruiting class” still got beat by the Dawgs. Dan has their number and TSUN fans can’t stand it, but not sure why, cause to them we are not considered their rivals…it’s apparently LSU who also thinks it’s a joke. Hahahaha

          okay, I’ll direct the NCAA to your FB page and they can deal with you directly. and Good job trying to change the subject… How do you know so much about the Ole Miss players cars. you must be jealous.
          BTW I can comment on this page all I want. You puppies are famous for trolling on the Ole Miss page. yeah you got a ton of 3 stars that wanna play in stankville… thats why this class is ranked so high, b/c you have so many. Check back in Feb, and this class will be way behind the rest of the SEC… plus after they visit some real schools they will definitely decommit. Dan Will scare them away… happens every year!
