2. Kedrick Reescano, 4-star RB (MSU commit)
I considered making Kedrick Reescano No. 1 on this list, but the position he plays stopped me from doing so. While it’s important to have a really good running back (see: Kenneth Walker III at MSU in 2021), it’s also important to have good blocking for him. So that’s a hint at who No. 1 is.
As for Reescano, he’s the only Michigan State commit on this list because he’s that important to keep, in my opinion.
Reescano has seen a huge jump in the recruiting rankings lately, jumping all the way to No. 173 in the composite and he’s the seventh-best running back in the class after a strong start to his senior year of high school ball. That has caused Ole Miss and Oklahoma State to come knocking.
Let’s hope he remains strong and stays with the Spartans because this season proves that they need an elite back to lead the way and Reescano can absolutely be that.
Honorable mention for this spot would be the two backs that Mel Tucker and Effrem Reed might be targeting in case Reescano leaves: Treyaun Webb (four-star Florida commit) and Jeremiah Cobb (four-star Auburn commit). Both would be really good replacements if Reescano decided to look elsewhere.
