Former three-star linebacker signee Deshon Cooper was permitted to go through training camp at Mississippi State while the NCAA Clearinghouse reviewed his coursework but was ruled academically ineligible.

The 6-foot-2, 209-pounder from Atlanta has enrolled and will play at Copiah-Lincoln Community College for the next two seasons. Cooper becomes teammates with Bulldog commitments Donald Gray, Jonathan Calvin and Lashard Durr with the Wolfpack.

Mullen stated that tight end signee Ravian Pierce is working to become eligible in the spring. Pierce inked with the Bulldogs on Feb. 27, a late addition to the 2014 class.

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.
