Michigan State football picked up a big-time commitment from four-star safety Darius Snow, a legacy recruit, from the state of Texas.
A visit for the spring game seemed to seal the deal. Legacy recruit Darius Snow, son of former basketball star Eric Snow and nephew of Percy Snow, committed to Michigan State on Wednesday night.
This doesn’t come as a huge surprise given the fact he was raving about his official visit to Michigan State over the weekend and he posted pictures with Mark Dantonio and one wearing the new neon-accented alternate.
However, the timing of this is interesting. He was going through his officials and had just released his top 13 back in February. When he dropped his top schools, it didn’t feel like he was anywhere near close to committing — 13 schools is a lot to narrow down.
Snow becomes the Spartans’ third commit in the 2020 class, joining three-star guard Dallas Fincher and three-star tight end Tommy Guajardo.
But this is a big one.
No, I’m not downplaying the importance of landing Guajardo and Fincher, but Snow could be a game-changer in the defensive backfield early on. He held over two dozen offers and Michigan State went down to the state of Texas to steal him away from the Longhorns and Texas A&M, among other top programs from the south.
Dantonio has to feel good about his defensive backfield which is growing in depth by the day, it seems, with no end to top-tier playmakers in sight.
Snow in April? That’s exactly what Spartan fans want to hear right about now.
