Rivals land talent late

Published 9:55 am Wednesday, June 15, 2016

The majority of their recruiting efforts may have come to a close but that does not mean in-state rivals  Mississippi State and Ole Miss will not continue to receive commitments.
Both schools received commitments late from players  who could stand to make an immediate impact in the fall.
Reginald Todd, a 6-foot-5, 180 pound wide receiver from Mobile, Alabama, announced his decision to take his talents to Starkville late Monday night.

Todd is the second receiver to commit to the Bulldogs Class of 2016 over the summer. His commitment fills a definite need for the Bulldogs with the departure of players like De’Runnya Wilson and Fred Brown, who made key contributions at the position.
Todd caught 45 passes for 1,308 yards and 11 scores as a senior at Blount County High School.

MSU’s other summer recruit, 6-foot-5 wideout Osirus Mitchell, committed to the Bulldogs last month. Both are expected to enroll in July.
Not to be outdone, Ole Miss has made what has proved to be a stout defense over the years a bit stronger.
