Could good news be on the horizon for Michigan State football recruiting?
Well, the month of June is almost here which means it’s official visit season and it’s an opportunity for Mel Tucker and the Spartans to get things going in the 2024 class.
The class currently sits at three commits after losing Nick Marsh and Jamari Howard, but it’ll soon be adding to that number.
And a recent South Carolina offensive tackle decommit could help.
On Tuesday afternoon, Mike Williams, a three-star offensive tackle, announced his decommitment from South Carolina and shortly after, he scheduled an official visit to East Lansing for June 16, according to 247Sports’ Corey Robinson.
It just feels like the Spartans are in a good position here and Robinson also tweeted that the Spartans remained in close contact with Williams even after he committed to South Carolina and that constant interest seems to have paid off. He’ll be in East Lansing with a chance for Tucker to land him in mid-June.
Tucker, Michigan State football building a strong offensive line
The Spartans just landed their best offensive line class in years in 2023 and if Tucker can flip Williams, that would just boost the position group even more.
Although he’s not the highest-rated prospect (No. 1,254 overall), the staff really likes Williams and he’s a mountain of an offensive tackle at 6-foot-6 and 325 pounds. Plus, his offer sheet is impressive with the likes of Florida, Maryland, Miami, Tennessee, and USC in the mix.
Michigan State looks like the current favorite to land Williams after reopening his recruitment.
