Another National Signing Day is officially upon us as Michigan State football is looking so sew up Mel Tucker’s third class as head coach.

While most of the class has already been signed in the early period, Tucker is looking to land maybe a few targets on signing day which would cap off his best class in three years in East Lansing. He may not get all of his remaining targets or even a majority of them, but there are a few guys still on the board.

Let’s take a look at three remaining targets for Michigan State as signing day approaches on Wednesday.

Javin Simpkins
RB Miami, Fla.

This one might be the least realistic addition of the three I’m going to cover, but Javin Simpkins was down to two programs at the end of December and you have to wonder if that’s still the case since all has been quiet on that front.

Simpkins stated in December that he was down to UCF and Michigan State and wanted to check out the Spartans before signing day. It doesn’t look like that happened.

Still, though, Michigan State has room for him and could opt to take two running backs in this recruiting class along with the two transfers. Simpkins could redshirt in 2023 and be a contender for the starting job in 2024.

Losing Kedrick Reescano definitely hurt, but Simpkins would be a decent consolation prize along with Jaelon Barbarin. He’s a high-three-star recruit, ranked 247Sports’ No. 32 running back in the nation.

We’ll see if he’s still high on the Spartans on signing day.
