Mississippi State welcomed 19 football newcomers to the roster for the start of the June summer term on Thursday.

The 19 newcomers combined with the six mid-year transfers that went through spring drills give the Bulldogs all but three of its 2015 signing class already on campus. MSU is still awaiting the arrival of tight ends Farrod Green and Dontea Jones and defensive tackle T.D. Moton.

Defensive end Fletcher Adams (Brandon), running back Nick Gibson (Pinson, Ala.), wide receiver Justin Johnson (Birmingham, Ala.), defensive end Kendell Jones (Pinson, Ala.), linebacker Keith Joseph Jr. (Pascagoula), linebacker Traver Jung (Holmes Community College), linebacker Leo Lewis (Brookhaven), safety Mark McLaurin (Collins), wide receiver Keith Mixon (Birmingham, Ala.), offensive lineman Harrison Moon (Chattanooga, Tenn.), defensive end Anfernee Mullins (Aliceville, Ala.), running back Alec Murphy (Nixa, Mo.), safety Jamal Peters (Bassfield), cornerback Maurice Smitherman (Adamsville, Ala.), wide receiver Jonnas Spivey (Bay Springs), cornerback Chris Stamps (Warren Central), quarterback Nick Tiano (Chattanooga, Tenn.), linebacker Timothy Washington (Yazoo City) and center Darryl Williams (Bessemer, Ala.) all enrolled this week.

Junior college transfers Johnathan Calvin, Donald Gray and Martinas Rankin along with early high school graduates Malik Dear, Michael Story and Deddrick Thomas began classes in January.

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.
