Joe Moorhead and the Mississippi State football team lost one of its prized commitments last night during the national title game. Charles Moore has decommitted from the Bulldogs.

A lot of crazy things happened last night in the world of college football. 1: Alabama lost, which is in itself a rarity. 2: Alabama was completely obliterated in the process, which is something that never really has happened under Nick Saban. 3: Speaking of Saban, he was out coached, which also happens very irregularly. 4: Charles Moore isn’t committed to joining the Mississippi State football team anymore.

Last night during the national championship game between Clemson and Alabama, Moore, one of the most talented recruits in State’s class, took to twitter to let everyone know that he was opening his recruiting process back up.

The 4-star defensive end from Louisville, Mississippi is an incredible talent. At 6-4 and just under 270 pounds, it’s borderline impossible for offensive linemen to stop Moore regularly. And unfortunately for Moorhead’s Mississippi State football program, the Bulldogs have to find a way to win him back

It appears as if Moore has really thought this whole thing through. He’s making a decision that he seems to think is best for both parties involved. And, well, he really only has to make the best decision for him and his family in this whole process.

It appears as if there is still something of a chance that MSU can convince Moore to play out his college career in Starkville, but it probably won’t be easy for the Bulldogs. The primary recruiter for Moore is no longer wearing Maroon and White.

That’s right, Mark Hudspeth, now Austin Peay’s head coach, was the guy responsible for getting Moore to Mississippi State.

The Mississippi State football team still has a respectable and solid class, but it isn’t as great as it once appeared. And, in the SEC, Moorhead’s staff will need to improve its recruiting efforts if the Bulldogs are ever going to win championships as Moorhead promised.
