Weeks after rumors began to swirl, Kedrick Reescano made it official on Thursday and decommitted from Michigan State football.
It had been a rumor for weeks dating back to the Ohio State game and he was reportedly taking official visits to Ole Miss and Oklahoma State. He decided to open up his recruitment officially and there may also be a third team in the race for him: Texas A&M.
Honestly, this is just a flat-out gut-punch for the Spartans.
Michigan State was one of the first teams to really recruit him and they wanted him from the start but then as his stock rose, he began to hear from other top programs. Obviously this is just the nature of the business and he wanted to weigh his options as they grew with his recruitment, but it doesn’t make this any less painful.
Reescano now becomes the second Michigan State decommitment from the past few weeks, following four-star lineman Clay Wedin who has already committed to Auburn.
Losing Reescano hurts Michigan State football’s 2023 class
The 2023 class started out really strong but has since hit a roadblock. The Spartans are down two commitments and are already shopping around for their replacements.
Michigan State has now lost its top running back prospect for the second time in the Mel Tucker era. He lost Audric Estime a couple of years ago to Notre Dame and that one hurt because it felt the same as this recruitment where he blew up and then decided to show interest elsewhere.
The 2023 class will rebound and finish strong and they’ll be fine at running back, but until the Spartans can show that they have an offensive line capable of setting a running back up for success, they may be fighting to find top recruits there.
