Price is a 6-foot-5, 315-pound offensive tackle from Hinds Community College (Raymond, Miss.). The Vicksburg, Miss., native was recruited by Mississippi State running backs coach Greg Knox. Kentucky, Louisiana Tech, Memphis, Missouri, Troy and Western Kentucky were his other offers.
Cooke (Columbia, Miss./Columbia Academy), a 6-foot-4, 200-pound kicker, selected the Bulldogs over a scholarship offer from Louisiana-Monroe. Tennessee also showed interest. Safeties coach/recruiting coordinator Tony Hughes led Mississippi State's pursuit of Cooke.
The Bulldogs' Class of 2014 now holds eight commitments.
