Michigan State football’s 2023 class jumps to No. 5 in the country

After landing three-star quarterback Bo Edmundson, Michigan State football’s 2023 recruiting class jumped to No. 5 in the country.

For the third time in a week, Michigan State football added to its 2023 recruiting class.

The Spartans landed three-star quarterback Bo Edmundson from Texas on Monday night, becoming the fifth commitment in the class.

After landing Johnathan Slack and Andrew Depaepe last week vaulted the 2023 class to No. 8 in the country which was uncharted territory for Michigan State. No one expected Mel Tucker to improve the Spartans’ recruiting this quickly, but that’s the kind of effect an 11-2 season and a New Year’s Six win can do to a program.

Tucker has done a fantastic job in just two short years.

But after landing Edmundson, Michigan State’s class went from top-10 to top-five. Yes, you read that correctly, according to the 247Sports Composite, Michigan State has the No. 5 recruiting class in the country for 2023.

What’s even more impressive about that is that the only reason the Spartans aren’t higher is that the four teams ahead of them have more pledges.

The Spartans are behind Georgia, Notre Dame, Penn State, and Arkansas in the team rankings for 2023 and there’s a strong feeling that they could keep that momentum going with other top targets committing in the near future. Michigan State definitely has the potential to piece together a top 10-15 class for 2023.

Edmundson may not be the quarterback Michigan State fans were hoping for, but if Dante Moore wants to commit, there will be a spot for him. This could be a two-quarterback class.

The three-star Texas-based quarterback is no slouch, though. In fact, he’s ranked the No. 433 overall recruit and 21st-best quarterback in the class.

All I know is Tuck Comin’.
