Michigan State football’s top quarterback target in the 2025 recruiting class, Bryce Underwood, was ranked No. 1 at his position by 247Sports.
Tuesday was a tough day for Michigan State football recruiting. One day after landing four-star in-state defensive lineman Jalen Thompson, the Spartans lost four-star wideout Demetrius Bell to a decommitment.
There had been rumors ever since he received interest from Alabama that he may reopen his recruitment and he did so on Tuesday night.
This also came one day after Mel Tucker spoke to the media following his first preseason practice of the week and said that recruiting his committed players is important. He must have known something about Bell when he said that because the timing was just too coincidental.
Either way, the focus is still on finishing 2023 strong and focusing on 2024 with Nick Marsh as the lone pledge. He must grow that class and then he can start worrying about future classes. But there’s one name that I know he’d love to add to his 2025 class that he may be recruiting harder than anyone else in that cycle: Bryce Underwood.
The Belleville, Mich., quarterback is one of the best at his position in the class and may very well be the state’s top recruit. And on Wednesday, 247Sports released its first top-100 for the 2025 class and it was extremely high on Underwood.
In fact, the top MSU target is ranked the No. 1 quarterback in the entire 2025 class and hopefully the Spartans can have better luck with him than they had with Dante Moore.
Underwood is the new No. 1 quarterback in 2025 and No. 6 overall and it feels like he’s only going to get better. Tucker will be pushing hard for him to join the program in East Lansing.
