Michigan State football has been making headlines on the recruiting trail lately and while they’re not picking up elite commitments like the school down the road (hopefully that’s coming in the near future), the Spartans are making the cut for some top targets who have been trimming their lists.
Earlier in the month, the Spartans landed a pair of three-star offensive linemen as well, showing that Mel Tucker is working relentlessly to build his 2024 class even after losing four-star wide receiver Nick Marsh — he did list the Spartans in his top 12 recently, however.
And on Wednesday, four-star tight end Dylan Mesman named the Spartans in his top schools list along with a handful of solid programs.
It’s going to be tough for Mel Tucker and Co. to beat out that list of teams, but it feels like the Spartans currently lead here and he’s announcing his commitment on Friday.
Dylan Mesman could return juice to Michigan State football recruiting
After the excitement that filled last offseason on the recruiting trail, Michigan State football fans were expecting that to carry over seamlessly into 2024. That hasn’t happened thus far after a quick start to the class has come to a screeching halt.
The Spartans lost Marsh to a decommitment and they only had two commits heading into April. That number is now four and could be five this week if Mesman commits.
If Mesman does become the class’ tight end, he would be Michigan State’s third four-star pledge and a big-time in-state kid. He could help Andrew Dennis recruit the rest of the class and be a spokesperson for Michigan State.
He could be the perfect recruit to kickstart the class.
The Saline, Mich., product is the No. 390 overall recruit in the class, per 247Sports.
