Michigan State football: Chimdy Onoh would cap off best OL class in a decade

Chimdy Onoh is a relatively new name on Michigan State football’s radar, but the four-star offensive tackle in the 2023 class is considering a commitment to the Spartans.

Michigan State offered Onoh on Dec. 24 and he scheduled a visit shortly after receiving a scholarship offer for Jan. 20. He had a slew of official visits over the past month to Penn State, Ole Miss, and Michigan State and it feels like the Spartans have a real shot here.

Penn State did receive two big crystal balls for Onoh on Monday so the Nittany Lions might have a slight lead here, but you can’t count Mel Tucker out just yet.

He’s won recruiting battles like this before.

Onoh would cap off Michigan State football’s best OL class in a decade

You could argue that Tucker and Chris Kapilovic have already landed Michigan State’s best offensive line class in over a decade with Stanton Ramil, Cole Dellinger, and Keyshawn Blackstock already committed, but adding a fourth four-star on the line would be unheard of in East Lansing.

The last time a class even rivaled this one (based on how their careers turned out) was 2011 when Michigan State had Donavon Clark, Jack Allen, and Fou Fonoti. That’s right, a high-rated tackle, a solid interior offensive lineman, and a JUCO transfer. Just like the 2023 class.

Onoh would put the 2023 class ahead of that one.

The four-star from Maryland is 247Sports’ No. 149 overall recruit and 13th-best offensive tackle. He would be a perfect complement to an already solid class.

This could also set off a domino effect for future classes if they see that Kapilovic and Tucker can land and develop top talent.

Onoh’s decision is approaching and Tucker could shock everyone and beat out Penn State.
