Mississippi State picks up commit from three-star TE Roberson

The Mississippi State Bulldogs used the momentum from their 10-win season to sign one of the most highly regarded signing classes in school history last season and look to have carried the recruiting hot streak into 2015 with the commitment of Christian Roberson of McEachern, Ga.

Roberson may only be considered a three-star prospect by 247 Sports but he has an impressive offer sheet that suggests his talent outweighs his rank. Arkansas, Florida, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, Missouri and Virginia Tech have all offered the six-foot-six, 230-pound tight end prospect. 

The lanky tight end should make for a nice target up the middle for either Damian Williams or Nick Fitzgerald starting in 2016. 

Roberson becomes the 12th commitment of the Bulldogs 2016 recruiting class and first tight end of the group.
