Michigan State football has plenty of breakout candidates heading into 2020 but who could stand out on the offensive side of the ball?

Offense hasn’t exactly been a point of pride for Michigan State over the past few years. With 2017 being the only exception since 2015, the Spartans have been ranked near the bottom nationally in scoring offense as well as yards per game.

It all started with the downfall of 2016 as the Spartans went 3-9 and the offense couldn’t settle on a quarterback. Tyler O’Connor struggled and then Brian Lewerke looked solid before getting injured and missing the remainder of the season. Damion Terry was sprinkled in, but the offense just looked discombobulated.

The defense has carried Michigan State for years, especially in 2018, but now it’s time for this side of the ball to carry its own weight.

With a coaching staff change, that’s finally possible. No more reshuffling of the staff, just new faces on that side of the ball, led by offensive coordinator Jay Johnson. He has some intriguing assistants joining him such as William Peagler, Chris Kapilovic and Courtney Hawkins. Ted Gilmore is another name that should bring some intrigue.

Now that all of these guys have had time to work with the team, which offensive players could be in the breakout seasons?
