Mike Leach staff has already hit the ground running before signing day in February. The coaches have already offered a couple of prospects and will look to lock up a couple of spots when signing day is here.
Brady Ward (OT)
The first offer from the Mike Leach staff came to Brady Ward 3* OT, (Mobile, Al). Ward has offers from Arkansas, LSU, Ole Miss, Alabama and Mississippi State. Ward has a family connection to Mississippi State as well with his grandfather playing for the Bulldogs. The Bulldogs face stiff competition for Ward from Arkansas and Ole Miss. Ward is 6’7/310 lbs and is also a great thrower in track and field. Ward recently competed in the Army All-American game.
Dylan Spencer (OT)
Dylan Spencer is another Offensive Tackle recently offered by Mississippi State. Spencer is a 3* OT from Madison Central (Madison, Ms). Spencer committed to Southern Miss, but opted not to sign with the Golden Eagles in December. He is considered a heavy Mississippi State lean, but he also has offers from Kansas, Missouri, and Tennessee. Spencer is 6’4/300 and recently played in the Mississippi/Alabama All-Star game.
Anthony Brown (QB)
Moving to graduate transfers, Anthony Brown has been offered by Mississippi State’s staff. Brown, who was sidelined by injury in his junior year at Boston College has put together nice stat-lines in his 3 seasons at BC. Brown also has an offer from Oregon, so Leach’s staff will have to fight off Joe Moorhead for the coveted QB.
- 2019: 1,250 yards 9 TD’s/2 int’s 81 comp/ 137 attempts
- 2018: 2,121 yards 20 TD’s/9 int’s 158 comp / 285 attempts
- 2017: 1,367 yards 11 Td’s/ 9 int’s 134 comp / 258 attempts
Levi Draper (LB)
Mississippi State is very depleted at linebacker and having a player like Draper that could step in immediately would be huge. Draper will have two years to play two, and announced he will be transferring from Oklahoma. Draper was a 4* and the 5th best ILB in the 2017 Class.
