Michigan State returns experience at receiver, including starter Jalen Nailor, but it’s more of a reboot at the position given there’s a lot of youth and uncertainty. The transition also comes under new head coach Mel Tucker and his staff.

Michigan State entered last season with an experienced option in junior Connor Heyward, who led the team in rushing in 2018 when Scott missed most of the year due to injury. He planned on using last season to cement his role as the starter but that didn’t happen. Heyward lost his starting spot after just one game and redshirt freshman Elijah Collins took over as the featured back. Collins returns as one of the team’s top talents and should factor heavily into a new offense under new head coach Mel Tucker and his staff.

All 129 Football Bowl Subdivision schools are under those constraints.

Rocky Lombardi has the most game experience in the group, although those performances were up-and-down. Lombardi stepped in for an injured Brian Lewerke in 2018 and had a nice debut performance in a win over Purdue. After that it was a lot of shuffling between the clearly-injured Lewerke and the not-ready Lombardi.

The spring is a crucial time in college football recruiting. It provides an opportunity for programs to bring prospects to campus and for coaches to hit the road and evaluate players. That didn’t happen as planned this year. The coronavirus pandemic resulted in the NCAA on March 13 issuing a ban on in-person recruiting and the dead period now lasts through at least June 30.

Some of the early recruiting storylines in Mel Tucker’s tenure at Michigan State are the size the Spartans are recruiting at every position and their willingness to get into new areas the program has not traditionally recruited. Both of those philosophies can be summed up in one recruit: Arnaudville (La.) Beau Chene offensive lineman Devon Manuel. Manuel is a mountain of a recruit. He has offers from schools down south, but not from in-state LSU yet. The Spartans came in with an offer this month.

Foster could be playing Division I basketball next season if he wanted to. He had two D-1 offers, from Akron and Eastern Kentucky. But he was aiming a little bit higher on the college basketball food chain. Instead, there will be an intramural basketball team at MSU that might land the player of its dreams.

As a nurse practitioner, Kanu is on the front lines, fighting the COVID-19 pandemic the same way he did opposing quarterbacks during his days on the football field. “Just like when I played football,” Kanu explained, “you put on that uniform — the green and white — and we go to battle. There are a lot of things that happen within the lines of that field. Same thing in the hospital, it’s just, obviously, it is real life. We’re dealing with life and death.”

“I figured with all of this virus stuff going on, visits won’t even get set up, and people will start committing even sooner,” he said. “At the end of the day, it’s a business decision. I felt like Michigan State gave me the best chance to impact early, just with the circumstances on their roster. That had a major impact on it.”
