The recruiting grind for Michigan State football never seems to come to an end, and honestly it really can't. Jonathan Smith and his staff still have a lot of work to do after they inherited a decimated roster in December and are still seeing many Spartans enter the transfer portal this week.

Thankfully for Spartan fans however, Smith and his staff seem up to the challenge.

They have done an excellent job recruiting both the transfer portal and high school class so far, this time, however, is another example of Smith doing extremely well in the 2025 high school class as Michigan State just made the top six for a talented wide receiver.

Rahim Hutchins Jr. is a four-star wide receiver from Pearland, Texas. According to the 247Sports composite rankings, he is the No. 355 player in the country and the No. 54 wide receiver as well.

Weirdly enough, Hutchins appears to be flying way under the radar with a lot of schools as he only has 10 scholarship offers so far. This is extremely surprising because as we all know, the high school talent is elite in Texas, so it's strange for any high level Texas recruit to not have a lot of offers.

Regardless, it is huge for Smith to be in on Hutchins early before other schools potentially get involved down the line. But for now, the Spartans competition for Hutchins is Houston, UTEP, Nebraska, Memphis, and Louisiana Tech. In my opinion, that seems like a list of schools that Michigan State can for sure beat, but Smith will still have to put in the work.

Michigan State does not have an official visit scheduled with Hutchins yet. In fact, Nebraska is the only school to have one scheduled so far, so the Cornhuskers could be the team to beat. But as of today, there is no clear leader in his recruitment, so Smith and his staff will have plenty of time to work their magic and try to get him to visit and commit to MSU.
