Mississippi State Football Secures Two Secondary Commitments per report.

STARKVILLE, Miss. — Mississippi State head coach Jeff Lebby has shifted his focus towards transfer portal recruiting during the Spring, a strategy unfamiliar to many MSU fans but increasingly common among coaches nationwide.

Despite this new approach, Lebby remains committed to signing elite high school players, particularly from the Magnolia state. Recently, he secured commitments from two promising recruits.

Stephen Miller and Derrion Horsley are the newest additions to Mississippi State’s roster. Horsley, a native of Sharpsburg, GA, attends East Coweta High School. Last season, the 3-star recruit, as rated by 247Sports, recorded 38 tackles, 13 pass breakups, and one interception.

The Bulldogs extended an offer to Horsley on June 1st, and he committed to MSU two weeks later. The 6’2″, 185-pound cornerback also received offers from East Carolina, Western Kentucky, Troy, and Georgia State. His physicality, length, and closing speed set him apart.

Miller, the second commit, hails from Greensboro, GA. The 6’1.5″, 180-pound safety had an impressive season last year, excelling on both sides of the ball. Offensively, he amassed 1,406 all-purpose yards, and defensively, he recorded 13 tackles and five interceptions. The 3-star recruit has offers from Arkansas, Kansas, and LSU.

The MSU coaching staff has had a successful weekend, continuing a trend of strong recruitment efforts that date back to December. With these new additions, Mississippi State’s 2025 class now boasts six commits.
