Coming off a 3-9 season, Michigan State football is hoping to rebound in 2017. This season, though, one of the biggest weaknesses is their secondary. They have budding defensive backs in Justin Layne and true freshman Josiah Scott, but behind them, there’s not much. There is Tyson Smith, a player who was at one point highly-touted, but he is in the process of recovering from a stroke. While he seems to be healthy enough to play, no one will be able to tell how prepared he is to get back on the gridiron until the season starts.
