STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi State has signed 6-foot-9 forward Johnny Zuppardo in an effort to add talent and depth in its frontcourt.

The Kiln, Miss., native recently finished his sophomore season at Jones County Junior College, where he helped lead the Bobcats to a national title. He averaged 15.2 points and 6.9 rebounds per game.

The university announced Zuppardo’s signing on Wednesday.

Zuppardo signed with Arkansas State out of high school, where he averaged 1.3 points and 1.0 rebound in 24 games. He also spent one season at Southern Mississippi, where he redshirted, before transferring to Jones County.

Zuppardo should add depth next season behind veterans Gavin Ware and Roquez Johnson. The Bulldogs finished with a 14-19 record last season.
