Spring practice has begun in East Lansing. Who are three Michigan State football players to watch for during spring practice?

Michigan State football is back. Well, sort of. Spring practice has started and the Spartans are looking to bounce back after a tough 2020 season.

During the offseason, Michigan State completed an intense weight room program. Head strength and conditioning coach Jason Novak and Mel Tucker believe the team is built in the weight room. Tucker made it clear during the season that the team is not where it should be in terms of the weight room.

Novak put the Spartans through a vigorous training program that includes ‘Strain Train Fridays’ and the team has a WWE style belt to increase competition.


Tucker brings his relentless energy into the weight room impelling for his players to compete and push each other to get better.

Since the quarterback competition between Anthony Russo and Payton Thorne is quite obviously the biggest thing to watch, I decided to leave it out of this to focus on the other Spartans.

It will be exciting to see who has improved so far and who is on the verge of breaking out in 2021. Without further ado, let’s take a look at three players to watch for this spring.
