One of the top quarterbacks of the 2018 recruiting class is now off the board.

Four-star quarterback Jalen Mayden (6-foot-2, 215 pounds, Sachse, TX) announced on Tuesday that he had made his commitment to Mississippi State.

Mayden picked Mississippi State over Baylor, Louisville, Nebraska, and Tennessee, who were the members of the Top 5 he released last month.

While Mississippi State does have Nick Fitzgerald likely set at quarterback for now, the pickup of Mayden is a big move for their future. After the departure of quarterback Dak Prescott to the NFL after the 2015 season, Dan Mullen and co. will need to keep adding quality talent in order to get back to those lofty 10-win season expectations.

Mayden is now Mississippi State’s second highest-rated recruit for the 2018 class, behind four-star wide receiver Malik Heath.
