A word I would use to describe Bai Jobe’s process coming to an end soon would have to be “hopeful.”
The Spartans have to feel good about where they stand with Jobe, especially since his final three consists of Oklahoma, Alabama, and MSU. Why should the Spartans be hopeful to be in a final three with two powerhouses? Because many believed that his final three was a lock to be Miami, Vanderbilt, and Michigan State with it coming down to a Hurricanes-Spartans battle.
The fact that Miami and Vanderbilt didn’t make the cut but Michigan State did is a good sign and it could mean that the Spartans are the clear favorite here which is the consensus feeling.
Word on the street is that Oklahoma and Alabama aren’t really pushing hard for him which could mean that Mel Tucker and the Spartans could run away with him and pick up his best recruit since taking over at Michigan State.
Jobe is ranked the No. 64 overall recruit and ninth-best edge rusher as well as Oklahoma’s top recruit and landing him could help the Spartans pick up four-star defensive lineman Xadavien Sims in the 2024 class.
