Quay Evans enrolls early

Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen announced five mid-year additions to his team's roster on Friday, according to the school's official site.

Headlining the group is ESPNU 150 defensive tackle Quay Evans (Morton, Miss.), Mullen's top recruit for 2012. The 6-foot-2, 315-pound prospect selected the Bulldogs over scholarship offers from Auburn, USC, Florida State, LSU, Ole Miss, Alabama, Miami-FL and Southern Miss.

Hargrave Military Academy offensive tackle Justin Senior, a Montreal native, has also signed. Bowling Green, Memphis, Bethune-Cookman and Delaware State were his other suitors.

Additionally, three junior college players, defensive end Denico Autry (Albemarle, N.C./East Mississippi CC), offensive tackle Charles Siddoway (Eugene, Ore./Butte College) and center Dylan Holley (Biloxi, Miss./Mississippi Gulf Coast CC), round out the newcomers.

"It's great to welcome these five young men to our Mississippi State family," Mullen said. "We're happy they're here for the spring semester and will be able to develop in our offseason program and participate in spring practices."

Including the five mid-year enrollees, Mississippi State has 25 recruits on board for 2012.
