Michigan transfer LB had a "great" visit to Michigan State football

Revenge. That is what's on my mind after former Michigan State football safety Jaden Mangham scheduled an official visit with arch rival Michigan.

Now I doubt that is what's on Jonathan Smith and his coaching staff's minds, but it's hard to not see the irony behind a former Michigan Wolverine visiting East Lansing days after Mangham shared that he will be visiting Michigan.

But regardless of all of that, Michigan State had a huge visitor on campus on Saturday, and it sounds like the visit went extremely well.

Semaj Bridgeman is a transfer linebacker from Michigan. He originally was a four-star recruit in the 2023 class and ranked the No. 37 linebacker in the country. After spending one season in Ann Arbor, Bridgeman has entered the transfer portal and took a visit to Michigan State on Saturday.

According to 247Sports, Bridgeman is a three-star transfer and the No. 34 linebacker in the country. So he may not be the flashiest recruit on paper, but he would be a huge addition to Michigan State. Bridgeman did not play in his one season at Michigan, so he still has four years of eligibility remaining. That gives him plenty of time to develop into an elite linebacker, which he definitely has the potential to become.

After his visit on Saturday, the Philadelphia, Penn., native said that he had a "great day" during his visit to Michigan State. Now I know that gives us pretty much zero information about how the visit actually went, but Michigan State On3 reporter Kenny Jordan may have hinted at how his visit went.

"Embrace the darkness" is what Jordan posted on X just five minutes after the post originally shared by Bridgeman about the visit. Jordan doesn't specifically mention that this post has to do with Bridgeman, but I think it's pretty easy to connect the dots.

We'll have to wait and see if this is a recruitment that Michigan State and Smith end up winning, but this would be one of the most fun recruitments to win being that Bridgeman has a lot of potential and that MSU would be stealing him from Michigan.
