Mississippi State added a familiar piece to its 2016 recruiting puzzle with the re-commitment of linebacker Deshon Cooper.
Cooper signed with the Bulldogs in February and went through fall camp in Starkville but was ruled academically ineligible by the NCAA. The 6-foot-3, 240-pounder from Atlanta then enrolled at Copiah-Lincoln Community College.
Through two games with the Wolfpack, Cooper has made six tackles (five solo, one assist). He is one of four MSU commitments at Co-Lin joining Donald Gray, Johnathan Calvin and Lashard Durr.
Cooper is the Bulldogs fourth commitment for a 2016 class which ranks 12th nationally by 247Sports.com.
