MSU recruiting update

Last week I updated the MSU recruiting with a post here and mentioned a couple of guys I wish we would add to the class. The names I mentioned were: Chad Bumphis, Dennis Thames, LaDarius Perkins, Greg Reid, and Chris Hubbard.

News out tonight is that Bumphis, Thames and Perkins all committed to State this weekend and another I didn't know about, Darius Slay a burner from Georgia also committed. This is a big deal IMO and shows some of the positives Coach Dan Mullen is bringing to the program. So Below is where we are at with a couple of weeks to go until signing day, I've also bolded the 4 star guys as that is a rarity in MSU recruiting in past years.
