Michigan State football and Jonathan Smith are off to as good of a start as you could hope for when it comes to the spring transfer portal cycle.

The portal, which opened this past Tuesday, has already seen a few Spartans enter their name to leave the program, but Smith has done an excellent job in contacting other transfers and setting up visits with them as well.

This inlcudes UMass running back Kay'Ron Lynch-Adams who has an official visit scheduled on Monday, April 22.

However, the Spartans just received some more good news in his recruitment late Friday night.

In case you missed it, late Friday night Michigan State received one crystal ball prediction to earn a commitment from a talented running back from UMass in Lynch-Adams. This prediction does seem a little premature becuase it is still a couple days until he begins his visit to Michigan State, but the prediction came from Mike Traini, who is a UMass insider. So it might be safe to assume that he knows what he's talking about when it comes to Lynch-Adams.

Lynch-Adams is coming off an elite season this past year at UMass. He first spent two seasons at Rutgers where he struggled to get playing time, but in his third season at UMass he really burst onto the scene. Lynch-Adams had 236 carries for 1,157 yards and 12 touchdowns this past season. This also includes 20 receptions through the air as well for 118 more yards. However, those 1,157 rushing yards was the 27th most in the country. Sign me up for that.

A commitment date has not been announced for Lynch-Adams quite yet, but this prediction is a very good sign for Michigan State. As long as his visit goes well this coming week, there is a chance that he could commit and become a Spartan on the spot. We'll have to wait and see if that happens, but all signs so far point towards Michigan State winning this recruitment.
