It’s tough to recruit in the SEC, so Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen is smart to pull out all the stops in his recruitment letters.
Mullen’s latest stunt was sending a Mother’s Day card to offensive line prospect Chase Johnson as a recruitment letter. In the past, Mullen has written “You’re a baller” to one prospect and drawn a “can of swag” for another in a recruitment letter.
The Mother’s Day-themed note worked on Johnson. Mullen wrote that “Family is priority #1 in my program” in the letter.
“I’ve always liked Mississippi State,” Johnson told the Clarion Ledger. “But I think it affected me. They believe family is No. 1. They are going to accept you and your family. They aren’t just recruiting you. They are recruiting your whole family.”

Mullen sent a Mother’s Day card to offensive lineman Chase Johnson’s mom earlier this week, which Johnson then posted on Twitter. Check it out:
