The recruitment of Nick Marsh is one that Michigan State football fans have been paying close attention to. He was committed to the Spartans until this spring when he decided to reopen his recruitment. Spartan fans were crushed.
Marsh said that Michigan State would remain one of his top schools, but we all know how that usually goes.
Mel Tucker has seemingly continued to maintain a relationship with Marsh and he released a list of his top schools recently, naming Michigan State. His list was loaded and the main threats seem to be Auburn, Tennessee, and Penn State which he has visited or has scheduled a visit with since decommitting from MSU.
On Wednesday night, a new development in his recruitment surfaced as he revealed a commitment date of July 7.
It’s hard to really get a feel on this recruitment because rarely do you see a recruit decommit and then re-commit let alone do so in just a four-month span.
How should Michigan State football feel about this one?
Since Marsh has only taken two visits since decommitting with a third coming in June to Penn State, I feel like Michigan State is in a pretty good spot here.
Rarely does a kid schedule a commitment date before visiting a school if he plans on committing to that school. Of course, Penn State could wow him on his visit and take the lead, but it just feels like he’s doing some visits while showing respect to Michigan State and not staying committed while he weighs his options.
I’d say this is about as 50/50 as it gets, but I’d lean toward him returning (although I’ve been wrong many times before).
Marsh is the No. 86 overall recruit in the 2024 class and the 14th-best receiver, according to the 247Sports Composite.
