STARKVILLE, Miss. - With signing day more than a month in the rearview mirror, Mississippi State added a valuable piece to its 2011 roster this week. Clemson linebacker Brandon Maye signed an SEC Financial Aid Agreement with Mississippi State and will join the team following his graduation from Clemson in May.

"We're excited to welcome Brandon to our family after he graduates with honors from Clemson," head coach Dan Mullen said. "He's a wonderful kid, model student-athlete and a talented football player."


Maye is scheduled to graduate from Clemson following the spring semester with a degree in sociology and plans to pursue his master's degree in the sports administration program at Mississippi State.


"Brandon will transfer here within the very spirit of the NCAA post-graduate transfer rule as he begins his pursuit of his master's degree," Mullen said.


The Mobile, Ala., native played in 35 games, earning 33 starts, in his career at Clemson. He tallied 233 tackles and established a school single-season record with five forced fumbles in 2009, a year in which he posted 103 total tackles.


"Brandon has experience playing at the highest level of college football and will bring that knowledge with him to our team," Mullen said. "He also knows nothing will be given to him and he will have to work hard this summer to help us on the field this fall."
