Mississippi State’s 2011 basketball signing class will add one final member, according to GenesPage.com.
The website reported Friday night that Shawn Long, a 6-foot-10, 225-pound forward from Morgan City, La., committed to Rick Stansbury’s Bulldogs and should sign within the next few days.
Long averaged 22.4 points, 15.0 rebounds and 9.0 blocks per game last season.
He would be the fifth member of this signing class and would also bring MSU’s total of scholarship players for 2011-12 to 13, the maximum allowed under NCAA rules. Already signed are D.J. Gardner, Rodney Hood, Roquez Johnson and Deville Smith.
The spring signing period ends May 18.
