Mississippi State might have found its starting point guard for next season.
Jacoby Davis, who played last season at St. John’s Northwest Military Academy in Wisconsin, committed to the Bulldogs on Tuesday, according to several recruiting services.
He’s the first commitment since coach Rick Ray was hired.
The 6-foot-1, 185-pound point guard began his prep career at Vance High School in Charlotte, N.C., before transferring to West Charlotte, where he averaged 17 points per game during the 2010-11 season.
Davis signed with North Florida in Nov. 2010 but was not admitted by the school, so he spent the year at St. John’s.
No stats for his time at St. John’s were available.
MSU currently has four signees in the 2012 class, and with only five scholarship players returning, Ray is looking to beef up the roster.
