Mississippi State football recruiting: Kison Shepard commits to MSU

Zach Arnett got more good news on the Mississippi State football recruiting front when Kison Shepard committed to the Bulldogs.

It sure seems like Zach Arnett and the Mississippi State Bulldogs coaching staff have been busy on the Mississippi State football recruiting trail as of late. MSU earned yet another notable commitment Monday when Kison Shepard used Twitter to announce his intention to commit to Mississippi State.

That’s pretty big news for the Bulldogs, who continue to steadily assemble their 2024 Mississippi State football signing class.

Shepard, a 6-4 and 315 pound offensive lineman from Germantown, Tennessee, is the latest high school star to announce his commitment to the Mississippi State Bulldogs. Given his talent and size, he sure seems like a solid addition to this recruiting class, especially considering this group already features two other offensive linemen.

Shepard, who is listed as a 3-star prospect, according to his 247Sports profile, held a number of offers from several different schools. It sure seems like prominent and underdogs alike were hoping to earn his commitment.

And the Bulldogs got it.

Shepard reportedly had offers from teams like the Florida Gators, Ole Miss Rebels, Nebraska Cornhuskers, Texas Longhorns, Texas A&M Aggies, Louisville Cardinals, and then a group of several other teams. Mike Schmidt is listed as the primary recruiter for Shepard.

Here’s how the recruiting class looks right now:

This is huge for the Bulldogs and Arnett. MSU now has 10 players in its 2024 recruiting class and the Bulldogs are steadily climbing in the recruiting rankings. According to 247Sports, Mississippi State now has the No. 27 recruiting class nationally and the No. 8 recruiting class in the SEC as the Bulldogs have jumped ahead of the Rebels.

That’s a pretty good spot to be in for the Bulldogs. There’s still some work to do and MSU will need to work to keep its commitments, but this is a pretty good spot to sit in during the month of June.
