Mississippi St. lands two Alabama prep standouts

Mississippi State continues its raid of landing players from the state of Alabama.

The Bulldogs landed verbal commitments on Friday from Pinson Valley running back Nick Gibson and Hoover wide receiver Justin Johnson.

Gibson and Johnson are both considered among the best prospects in Alabama.

"It's a great moment," Gibson told "MSU knew I wanted to be part of the family and I joined that family tonight. Everybody gets treated like family and I already feel like I'm a part knowing most of the players and being close with Cory. I just feel at home here."

MSU (8-5 last year) has four pledges in its Class of 2015 from Alabama.

The Bulldogs' other Alabama verbals are Clay-Chalkville defensive end kendell Jones and Minor cornerback Maurice Smitherman.
