Michigan State will play host to Indiana for its homecoming game on Saturday (3:30 p.m. ET, ABC). With 18 players already committed to its 2018 class, Michigan State doesn’t need to bring in many senior prospects. There’s likely three spots that remain to be filled.

Michigan State has plenty of work to do if it wants to organize a recruiting weekend more successful than Sept. 22-24. The Spartans picked up one commitment that Saturday from Dwan Mathis, a 4-star Oak Park (Mich.) junior quarterback, and two 2018 prospects pledged the following Friday. Four-star offensive lineman James Ohonba and 3-star running back Elijah Collins both came to their decisions after taking in the prime-time game against Notre Dame.

It’s coming up on two months away from the first early signing period in college football. That period starts on Dec. 20 and should benefit teams like Michigan State that land the bulk of their 2018 class early on. The Spartans will hope they can sign all 18 of their commits (and any others they reel in before then) on that first day to stop other suitors from trying to pull them away.

Eighteen players have committed to Michigan State football’s 2018 class, and each one has done so with a leap of faith. None of the current players chose Michigan State after the Spartans upset in-state rival Michigan. None of them made the call after Michigan State earned a return to the AP Top 25 and the Amway Coaches Poll. They had three Big Ten championships and four bowl wins under Coach Mark Dantonio to point to, but they also saw a 3-9 record in 2016, numerous issues off the field and an uncertain

Michigan State has just a few spots left in its 2018 recruiting class. With 18 players committed, the Spartans likely have room for a maximum of three more. One might be a running back or a defensive back. One might be a wide receiver. It’s pretty clear one spot will go to a defensive lineman. Don’t forget about James Head, the Miami Southridge defensive end whom Michigan State offered in May. He committed to Indiana in July, but that hasn’t stopped him from keeping his options open.

A whole lot has happened in Michigan State recruiting since our last notebook.

Three-star running back Elijah Collins and 4-star offensive lineman James Ohonba made the call on Friday, and 3-star offensive lineman Jacob Isaia joined on Sunday after his official visit.

Michigan State recruited Olentangy (Lewis Center, Ohio) defensive end Zach Slade for his football skills, but the Spartans will be getting an aggressive spikeball player as well. The 6-foot-4 senior will arrive on campus soon enough with his twin brother, defensive tackle Jacob Slade. They won’t be the only twins on the team (Andrew and David Dowell), and they’re not the only twins in their immediate family.

On Saturday night, Jacob Isaia pondered the question that he probably didn’t need to think about for a while. Do I commit to Michigan State, or do I keep on waiting it out and look at other schools? The early signing period won’t arrive until Dec. 20 and the regular period not until Feb. 7. He had schools such as Vanderbilt and Virginia in pursuit. But after what he saw Saturday, game day, on his official visit to East Lansing, the 3-star Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas) offensive lineman felt the timing was rig
