What a week it’s been for Michigan State football recruiting.
Heck, it’s been a nice month for the Spartans as they’ve gone from just three commits to now sitting at seven commits.
Michigan State went from around No. 72-75 in the nation for the class up to No. 59 on Sunday after landing its second commitment in as many days and neither were visitors from this huge weekend that Mel Tucker hosted.
On Saturday, it was Anthony Carrie, a four-star running back from Tampa, and on Sunday, Michigan State picked up a commitment from former Syracuse cornerback pledge Syair Torrence, a three-star from New York.
This marks Michigan State’s second commitment over the weekend and the seventh in the class. And it seems as if the staff isn’t done. There have been hints at even more committing on Sunday which could lead to an all-time weekend for Tucker.
Torrence is ranked the No. 658 overall recruit in the country and while he’s listed as a receiver on 247Sports, he’s projected to play cornerback at the next level.
The secondary class is shaping up quite nicely with four-star Jaylen Thompson, three-star Reggie Powers, unranked Camren Campbell, and now Torrence committed. This is a huge step to get that ‘No Fly Zone’ back.
Tucker doubters have been silent
For weeks, we had to hear about how Tucker couldn’t recruit anymore and he had lost his touch on the trail, but those doubters have been silent for the past couple of weeks now.
Tucker has landed four commitments since the June 9 official visit weekend and it sounds like there are even more on the way. If all goes as planned, he may head into July with 10-plus commitments and one of the top-40 recruiting classes in the country.
That’s not where he wants to be obviously, but if the class continues this upward trend, he could finish with yet another top-25 class and maybe one that flirts with the top 20.
He’s not finished yet.
