Starkville, MS (Future150) -- Over the past two weeks, Future150 has begun to break down the top recruiting classes in the nation. The 2016 class is very good as a whole, meaning there is plenty of talent to go around. Ben Howland may only be starting his career at the head man of Mississippi State, be he's already landed his second impact class.


Mario Kegler,  #27 in Top-150, Oak Hill Academy (VA): The Mississippi native will return home for his college ball, and Bulldogs fans should be excited. Kegler is a versatile scorer who can put up points on all three levels. Defensively he can guard bigger players thanks to his strength. Even if Newman stays for another season, Kegler could thrive next to him.

Abdul Ado, #50 in Top-150, Hamilton Heights (TN): A shot-blocking menace, Ado's impact will be felt on the defensive end from day one. With great timing and athletic ability, it may not be a stretch to say that the Bulldogs haven't had a shot-blocker like this since Jarvis Vanardo. Ado is also deceptively skilled on offense as well.

Lamar Peters, #76 in Top-150, Landry Walker (LA): The Future150 Alum will be counted on to space the floor thanks to his shooting ability, but Peters will bring more than scoring. A bigger point guard, he can create for others, and is quick enough to be a very good defender down the road. 

Schnider Herard, #79 in Top-150, Prestonwood Christian (TX): While Herard may not be as polished as his classmates, his motor may be better than everyone else's. He knows how to play his role and will be another monster defensively thanks to his 6-foot-10, 240 pound frame. Him and Ado alongside each other for the next four years will make it hard for anyone to score in the lane on the Bulldogs.

Eli Wright, #90 in Top-150, 22 Feet Academy (SC):  Arguably the best athlete in this group, Wright will be a fan-favorite thanks to his high-flying antics. He is a big time slasher who can finish around, through, or over defenders in mid-air. Wright also has the tools to be an elite perimeter defender, and has improved his jump shot as well. the Future150 alum may be the best recruit in this group when it's all said and done. 

Tyson Carter, #95 in Top-150, Starkville (MS): Another Future150 Alum, Carter is another big combo-guard who will space the floor with his shooting ability. Carter is an aggressive scorer who can create for his teammates. 

This group should step in and have a major impact on the program from day one. Kegler and Ado should both be locks to start, while the other four immediately improve the rotation and give the program depth. Wright has had a strong start to his senior season, and could be more ready for the college level than most people realize. Regardless of how many of these guys perform on day one, this group will be the cornerstone of the program moving forward.
