Bulldogs Add Three on First Day

The Mississippi State Bulldogs added three quality reinforcements on the first day of the mid year signing period earlier today. Three prospects from the Mississippi Junior College ranks all made their senior college decisions official.

Linebacker Chris White of Mississippi Gulf Coast Community college totaled 103 regular season tackles, 49 of those were solo stops.

White as named 1st team All-American by JC Gridwire and 2nd team All-American by the NJCAA. That same organization tabbed him as a first team selection in the preseason.

White played his high school ball at Vancleave before starring on two of Coach Steve Campbell's teams at Gulf Coast. Both of those teams won the Region 23 championship and a share of the NJCAA National Championship in 2007.

Punter Heath Hutchins of Itawamba Community College led the nation in punting in 2008 with a 46.1 average with a long of 69 yards.

Hutchins, a native of Saltillo, Mississippi, earned 1st team All-American honors from both JC Gridwire and the NJCAA.

Maurice Langston of East Central Community College led all players in the Mississippi Junior College ranks in touchdowns scored.

Langston was named 1st All-Region as a wide receiver and a return specialist.

All three players are expected to report to Starkville on January 5th where they will begin classes for the spring semester.

The Bulldogs are expected to add two time All-American kicker Sean Brauchle in the coming days and are still awaiting word if long standing commitment Pernell McPhee will sign with Mississippi State.

McPhee is a two time All-American defensive end from Itawamba Community College that led the nation in quarterback sacks in both 2007 and 2008.
