Mississippi State added its third commitment and second running back pledge on Friday as four-star Nick Gibson made his call.

The 5-foot-11, 191-pounder from Pinson, Ala., joins Alec Murphy (who also committed Friday) and Kentavious Thomas in the Bulldogs backfield for the 2015 class.

Gibson chose MSU over offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida State, Kentucky, Louisville, N.C. State and Tennessee.

The Pinson Valley standout is considered the No. 24 running back nationally by composite and the ninth-rated prospect in Alabama.

Last season, Gibson rushed 293 times for 2,205 yards and 27 touchdowns while hauling in 25 passes for 266 yards and three more scores as the Indians went 7-5 and reached the second round of the Class 5A Playoffs.

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.
