If Michigan State is to land Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian linebacker Joshua Calvert, it will have to overcome a brotherly connection. Calvert’s older brother Bo is a freshman linebacker at UCLA and the Spartans and Bruins are battling it out. “It is mainly Michigan State and UCLA right now, those are the main two,” Calvert told 247Sports’ Brandon Huffman. “I’ve scheduled my official visit for Michigan State our bye week (Sept. 29 against Central Michigan). UCLA and Michigan State are very seri

Michigan State definitely has a leg up on the recruiting trail for East Kentwood junior offensive lineman Dallas Fincher. Fincher, a 6-foot-4, 280-pound three-star guard, already has 20 offers, including Ohio State, Michigan, Wisconsin and Michigan State. So, why would the Spartans have the upper hand on Fincher? Well, his father, Mark, was an offensive lineman for Michigan State back in the mid-’80s.

Tight end is one position Michigan State does not have a commit at yet in the 2019 class, but a top target at that spot is materializing in Trotwood (Ohio) Trotwood-Madison’s Justin Stephens. Stephens is a 6-foot-7, 235-pound prospect who is a good enough athlete to have played a significant role on a state championship basketball team. While it took some time for him to get on the major college recruiting radar, once he did, the offers came quickly. Michigan State is one of the schools that has offered,

As always, the first question I like to ask recruits is, why Michigan State? “I chose to commit to Michigan State because I know how it can affect my future and get me where I want to be,” Brown said. “Michigan State has always been my dream school and once that chance came upon me I had to take that opportunity.”

Michigan State has grabbed its share of recruits from within the state, but during Mark Dantonio’s tenure, the Spartans have truly made their mark beyond the borders of the Great Lakes state. Often landing talent from Ohio, Michigan State is starting to show it’s getting the job done closer to home. Of the 15 players who have committed to the 2019 class, eight are from the state of Michigan. If that number stayed the same by the time the class is signed, it would be the most homegrown talent the Spartans ha
