    The No. 16-ranked center in the Class of 2016, Ado visited Penn State over the weekend and is also considering Auburn, among others.

    Yet Mississippi State head coach Ben Howland appears to be on the brink of adding to his already loaded recruiting class.

    Howland already has the No. 5-ranked class in 2016, according to Scout.com, behind Duke, Michigan State, Kentucky and UCLA.

    That five-man class includes point guards Tyson Carter and Lamar Peters, shooting guard Eli Wright, wing forward Mario Kegler and big man Schnider Herard.
