Four-star Sandberg commits to State

Mississippi State's successful run of commitments continued on Monday as they landed four-star quarterback Cord Sandberg.

The 6-foot-3, 205-pounder from Bradenton, Fla., called Dan Mullen and gave the Bulldogs the good news.

"I was going to go to Starkville this weekend with my coach and teammates but I had a baseball tournament that I had to do," Sandberg said. "But while they were up there today they liked it a lot and my coach talked with Coach Mullen and wanted me to give him a call. During that conversation I ended it. It felt good to kind of commit then and get it over with and focus on baseball and the rest of my football season. (Mullen) was happy. I'm not sure if he was jumping up and down but he said he was."

Sandberg chose MSU over offers from Arizona, Arkansas State, Auburn, Baylor, Cincinnati, Clemson, Florida Atlantic, Illinois, Iowa State, LSU, Mississippi State, North Carolina, Ole Miss, Texas Tech, Central Florida, Vanderbilt, West Virginia and Western Kentucky.

"I've never had an actual number one that I told the media but in my head and in my gut they've kind of been number one for a while," Sandberg said. "I knew I wanted to do something SEC just because of all the different venues you get to play at. The SEC competition-wise was the most appealing. Over the course of the recruiting thing Mississippi State just made me feel the best and ended up being the right fit and I went for it."
