Mississippi State is accustomed to making recruiting waves during its annual invite-only Big Dawg Camp, which takes place on Friday.
But the Bulldogs got the festivities started a little early this year with the commitment of three-star tight end Christian Roberson. Roberson announced his decision on Tuesday night via Twitter stating “I am extremely blessed to say I will be furthering my education and football career at the Mississippi State University.”
The 6-foot-6, 230-pounder from Powder Springs, Ga., chose MSU over 16 other offers including SEC schools Florida, Arkansas, Kentucky and Missouri.
Roberson is rated the No. 30 tight end nationally by 247Sports.com. As a junior, he caught three passes for 33 yards helping lead McEachern to the Class AAAAAA Final Four with a 10-4 record.
