While the Bulldog baseball team grabbed most of the headlines in Starkville this weekend as they advanced to their 4th straight Super Regional, the football program was busy as well.
On Friday, graduate transfer WR Isaiah Zuber announced that he will transfer from Kansas State to Mississippi State.

With 52 catches, 619 yards and 5 TDs, Zuber was KSU’s leading receiver last season. He had more catches, yards and touchdowns than any receiver on the Mississippi State roster in 2018.
Osirus Mitchell led the Bulldogs in receptions with 26, and Stephen Guidry’s 440 yards led the group in that category.
As a grad transfer, Zuber is eligible to play right away. The Bulldogs hope that Zuber can provide the deep threat in the passing game that they were missing last season, and he returned kicks while at KSU. The Bulldogs’ new receiver will have a chance to make an impact against his former team when MSU hosts Kansas State in week 3.
MSU has been active in the grad transfer market this offseason after they also picked up Penn State QB Tommy Stevens.
In addition to Zuber’s announcement, the Bulldogs added a commitment to their 2020 recruiting class from 3-star CB Cameron Threatt.

An Olive Branch native, Threatt is the #20 prospect in the state for the class of 2020, according to 24/7 Sports. The 5’11, 165-pound CB also held offers from Kentucky, Arkansas State and several others.
