Do you ever follow a story so closely and deal with the ups and downs so much that you’re just relieved when it’s over? Yeah, that’s kind of how Michigan State football fans have to feel with the Keon Coleman transfer.
On April 30, he decided to enter his name into the portal shortly after Payton Thorne did the same.
There were rumors swirling that he might end up in East Lansing again with the right amount of persuasion from Mel Tucker, but Ole Miss and Florida State quickly came calling — along with about 50 other programs. He took visits to both Oxford and Tallahassee and then announced on Wednesday that he’d be making a decision at 4:30 p.m. ET.
Well, he finally ended the speculation, picking Florida State.
In interesting fashion, he basically stated that he won’t be returning for a senior year, saying that he’ll be spending his next 8-9 months in Tallahassee. Always confident.
Now it’s time for the Spartans to officially move on.
Michigan State football has to rely on an unproven WR corps
I wrote last week about the youthful receiving corps and how the ceiling could be high for the group but it’s rather unproven. That point is starting to hit hard now.
Tre Mosley returns as the veteran of the group but behind him are guys like Montorie Foster and Christian Fitzpatrick who are older but don’t have quite the production to their names. They all need to step up this season.
And then there are young guys like Antonio Gates Jr., Tyrell Henry, and Jaron Glover. All three of those second-year players could be in for breakout years.
With Coleman officially gone, it’s time for this group to grow up quickly.
