Jeff Lebby didn't waste much time hitting the recruiting ground running after being named head coach of the Mississippi State football program. As he assembled his first coaching staff, the new head coach of the Bulldogs worked to overhaul the program's recruiting efforts and footprint.

Now, as the early signing period gets underway, Lebby's efforts on the recruiting trail seem to be paying off pretty well for the Bulldogs.

While there are a number of key athletes that Lebby was able to retain in this signing class, it's clear that he was more than able to get things rolling as he brought in a number of talented transfers that weren't even remotely expected previously.

Lebby's roots and connections to Texas are important for long term recruiting success (and his schemes and offensive pedigree will also be worth watching for recruiting purposes as well).

So far, the Bulldogs have built plenty of interesting recruiting momentum in the few brief weeks that Lebby has been in Starkville. Here's what the signing class looks like for the Mississippi State football team:
