After a strong recruiting weekend for Mel Tucker and Michigan State football, the momentum seems to have carried over into Monday.
Michigan State landed four-star running back Anthony Carrie and three-star cornerback Syair Torrence over the weekend to push the Spartans’ 2024 recruiting class up into the top 60 nationally after a very slow start to the class.
In fact, the Spartans had just three commits heading into the month of June. That has since ballooned to nine commits after Tucker landed two more “big” targets on Monday.
Mercer and Charlton Luniewski visited over the weekend and they both committed to Michigan State on Monday afternoon.
They chose Michigan State over hometown program Cincinnati which seemed to be the real threat in this recruitment as they visited a week prior.
It’s good to see Tucker getting into Ohio to snag some guys who may have flown under the radar much like Mark Dantonio did during his terrific run in the 2010s.
Michigan State football’s offensive line keeps getting stronger
A couple of years ago, the offensive line was in arguably its worst shape in over a decade. The Spartans just didn’t have depth nor did they have a ton of talent up front.
Fast forward to this offseason and it’s looking like the offensive line will be a strength in 2023 and beyond thanks to the past couple of recruiting classes and Chris Kapilovic’s ability to sell the program to his top targets.
In the 2023 class, Coach Kap was able to sign his best haul of offensive linemen yet and arguably the best in a decade at Michigan State. And now for 2024, he has four offensive linemen committed in the Luniewski twins, Logan Bennett, and Andrew Dennis.
The future is bright in those trenches.
