The Mississippi State Bulldogs can add a number of players from the recruiting class of 2018 to their roster when the early signing period begins on Wednesday, Dec. 20.

New Mississippi State coach Joe Moorhead has had a little less than a month since his hiring to assemble his staff and get out on the recruiting trail ahead of the start of the early signing period. As Moorhead replaces Dan Mullen, he will look to build on the Bulldogs’ success over the past few years.

According to 247 Sports, with 20 total commits, Mississippi State currently has the eighth-ranked recruiting class in the SEC and 22nd in the nation.

Here’s what all Mississippi State fans need to know about the early signing period, Bulldogs 2018 recruiting, and the next group of prospects making their way to Starkville next season:

What is the early signing period?

The early signing period is a three-day stretch of time during which recruits in the class of 2018 can sign their National Letters of Intent to the school of their choice. The early signing period makes its debut this year, whereas in all previous years, high school prospects had to wait until National Signing Day in early February to sign their letters of intent. Now prospects who are committed to a school can sign, allowing their recruitments to end while also allowing college coaches to focus on remaining uncommitted target prospects.

When is the early signing period?

The early signing period takes place from Wednesday, Dec. 20 through Friday, Dec. 22, 2017.
