Mel Tucker has done a great job of recruiting the offensive line over the past couple of classes as Michigan State football has loaded up on talent and depth in the trenches.
Last year, Tucker and Chris Kapilovic landed their best offensive line class since arriving in East Lansing with guys like Stanton Ramil, Keyshawn Blackstock, and Cole Dellinger picking the Spartans. All three of those guys were four-stars and should have major impacts during their time at Michigan State.
In the 2024 cycle, Michigan State already has four commits. Four-star Andrew Dennis leads the way along with three-stars Logan Bennett, Charlton Luniewski, and Mercer Luniewski.
As you can see, the coaching staff has been putting in work when it comes to offensive line recruiting.
And it could soon get even better as four-star lineman DeAndre Carter trimmed his list.
Michigan State, Auburn, and Texas made the cut for Carter who is the No. 101 overall recruit in the country, according to the 247Sports Composite. He also revealed a commitment date of Sept. 3.
Is Michigan State football running behind Auburn?
Unfortunately for the Spartans, it seems as if Auburn is the leader here, holding all of the crystal ball predictions to land the four-star lineman from California.
Could a commitment from Jason Brown help lure Carter to East Lansing? Maybe, but I wouldn’t count on them being connected here. It wouldn’t hurt if Michigan State landed the four-star running back from the West Coast and he could help recruit Carter before Sept. 3. One can only hope.
I would say Michigan State is probably running second here behind Auburn with less than a month remaining before he commits. A lot can change, but it’s not looking great.
