We’ve got a lot of MSU stuff for you in today’s Journal, so if you haven’t picked up a hard copy, I’m here to bring you some important linkage. Let’s start with football and recruiting.
• Three-star receiver De’Runnya Wilson committed to State yesterday, making him the 23rd member of this 2013 class. The 6-foot-5, 212-pounder also plans to play basketball for the Bulldogs, which isn’t something you see a lot of any more. South Carolina’s Bruce Ellington does it, though, and does it quite well. Speaking of two-sport guys, Senquez Golson of Ole Miss is giving up baseball to focus on football. (Y’all remember Golson.)
There are still some key targets out there for Dan Mullen, who would like to nab another quarterback. MSU has offered a scholarship to Houston commit John O’Korn (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.), and Arizona State commit Joshua Dobbs (Alpharetta, Ga.) remains a big target.
• MSU officially welcomed four members of its 2013 class on Tuesday, the first day of offseason workouts.
• Got some hoopage for you. Tonight in Fayetteville, MSU will take on Arkansas and its “40 Minutes of Hell.” That full-court pressure defense maybe isn’t at the level it was under Nolan Richardson, but it’s still going to be difficult for the young Bulldogs to deal with. Las Vegas certainly thinks so: Arkansas is a 15.5-point favorite.
• Finally, here’s a nice piece on former Bulldog Anthony Dixon, who’s gone from the 49ers’ roster bubble to the Super Bowl.
