Earlier this month, 247Sports released its new Top247 rankings for the 2023 class, and Michigan State football commit Kedrick Reescano was one of the biggest risers.
Reescano went from outside of the previous Top247 all the way up to No. 179 nationally. He has been one of the quickest risers in the entire class and he looks like a budding superstar. The four-star running back from New Caney, Texas, has been dominating competition during his senior year and it’s attracted more attention.
In fact, Ole Miss pushed for a visit and got one just last weekend.
Michigan State fans panicked, and rightly so. They’ve seen this movie play out before with Audric Estime when his stock was on the rise after Michigan State got in on him early.
Would Reescano be Estime 2.0? Not if Mel Tucker has anything to say about it.
Michigan State football must keep Reescano in the 2023 class
Holding on to Reescano has to be Tucker’s top priority leading up to signing day.
The New Caney running back has been one of the best backs in the nation during his senior year and it feels like he’s scoring a handful of touchdowns every week. In fact, he had four on Friday night in a blowout win for New Caney.
Explosive, electric, and elite. Kedrick owns pretty much every positive review in the book.
But keeping him as part of the Spartans’ 2023 class will be tough. They have to make sure they keep recruiting him even though he’s already committed. Ole Miss and Oklahoma State are on the rise in his recruitment and Tucker is being tested here.
Can he sell Reescano on being the future in the backfield during a disappointing 3-4 season or will Oklahoma State and Ole Miss have the upper hand due to 2022 success?
Tucker has to put the full-court press on and make sure he doesn’t lose another running back gem.
