Marks, a standout at Carver High School in Atlanta, Georgia, is the No. 14 running back in the nation and the No. 18 recruit in the state of Georgia. He also head offers from the likes of Alabama, Arkansas, and Auburn.
Last season, Mississippi State went just 8-5 under head coach Joe Moorhead. It was Moorhead’s first season as the Bulldogs finished just 4-4 in conference play.
Moorhead replaced Dan Mullen, who resigned at the end of the season to take over as the head coach at Florida.
During the season, Mississippi State scored big wins over No. 8 Auburn and No. 16 Texas A&M, but they suffered a close lose to Mullen’s Gators and No. 5 LSU. The Bulldogs capped off the season with a loss to Iowa in the Outback Bowl at Raymond James Stadium in Florida.
The good news for Missisippi State, however, is that they scored a win over Ole Miss in the Egg Bowl at Vaugh-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford when they were ranked No. 22 in the nation.
