2. Secondary progress
A year ago, Michigan State had one of the worst secondaries in college football which followed up the 2021 season in which the same could be said about the Spartans.
Progress had not truly been made until the second half of the 2022 season when it felt like the secondary really turned the corner. Does that mean it’s going to carry over in 2023 with Xavier Henderson and Kendell Brooks gone? Not exactly. But this is a chance for Michigan State to build on that momentum from the second half of 2022.
The secondary has some nice pieces such as Charles Brantley, Chester Kimbrough, Marqui Lowery, Malik Spencer, Terry Roberts, Caleb Coley, Chance Rucker, Dillon Tatum, Armorion Smith, and Jaden Mangham.
Will we see progress once again this fall and head into the season with the best-looking secondary of the Mel Tucker era?
