Michigan State football is yet to earn a commitment from the 2025 class, the only program in the Big Ten without one, but that doesn't mean the Spartans aren't doing a good job in recruiting.

The Spartans apear to be leading for many prospects, including Charles White who has multiple predictions in favor of MSU across various recruiting platforms.

On Saturday morning, however, the Spartans received three crystal ball predictions to land another talented in-state linebacker.

Di'mari Malone is a three-star linebacker from Macomb, Mich. According to 247Sports, he is the No. 746 player in the country and the No. 60 linebacker. He also is the No. 9 player from the state of Michigan as well. Recruiting the state of Michigan is always a huge priority, and Jonathan Smith seems to be emphasizing that so far with Malone and the already mentioned Charles White.

Malone is coming off a productive junior season that saw him rack up 73 total tackles including eight tackles for loss. He also added one sack, three interceptions, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. This wide range of production tells us one thing, he has a knack for finding the ball and forcing turnovers. These things are super important for any defensive player and something I would love to have in any player at Michigan State.

This recruitment seems to be a two-way battle between the Spartans and Illinois. Those are the two warm teams on Malone's 247Sports profile and the only schools with official visits scheduled so far. Di'mari's visit to East Lansing will be on June 7 and he will also visit the Illini on April 20.

But these predictions are a very good sign for Michigan State. A recrutiment is never over until it is official, but MSU has to love where they stand as of today.
