Business is beginning to pick up for Mississippi State football in recruiting. The Bulldogs had five recruits announce their pledge to Jeff Lebby's program Saturday night in the midst of a major recruiting weekend on campus.

The positive effects of that weekend are still being felt, as three more prospects have since committed to State.

3-star defensive lineman Christopher Johnson commits to Mississippi State

3-star Christopher Johnson became Mississippi State's second DL commit of the 2025 class. The 6-3, 255 pounder out of Montgomery is rated as an 85 overall prospect by 247 Sports. He ranks 142nd amongst DL and is the 56th best player in Alabama. Johnson chose the Bulldogs over West Virginia and East Carolina.

3-star safety Lo'Kavion Jackson commits to Mississippi State

State has added several pieces to their secondary since the weekend. 6-0, 197 lb Safety Lo'Kavion Jackson out of Lynn Haven, Flordia is the fourth DB of the 2025 class. Rivals rates Jackson as 3-star prospect, though full ratings are not yet available. Mississippi State beat out Miami and West Virginia for Jackson.

JUCO edge rusher Kevonte Henry commits to Mississippi State

The biggest addition for the Bulldogs in this most recent run of commitments is JUCO edge rusher Kevonte Henry of Cerritos College in California. A 4-star prospect out of high school, Henry began his career at Oklahoma before transferring to Cerritos last season. He recorded 43 tackles and 3.5 sacks in 2023. On3 rates Henry as an 87 overall, 3-star transfer prospect. He chose MSU over Oregon State and Utah State.

Positive recruiting momentum could continue for Mississippi State through next weekend

After landing eight commitments since Saturday night, Mississippi State's signing class has seen a nice boost, and that good momentum could continue. Jeff Lebby and Co. are set for another big recruiting event on campus this weekend with an emphasis on in-state players.

There's a good chance a few more prospects are on board by this time next week.
