Two years ago, Michigan State went into U-D Jesuit and signed running back Elijah Collins. Now the Spartans are going after linebacker Dorian Mausi, a rising senior for the Cubs. The Spartans offered on Thursday. The 6-foot-2, 215-pound Mausi won linebackers MVP at The Opening Regional in Charlotte. At that time, he had no offers from Power Five schools, but since then, Duke, Indiana and now Michigan State extended opportunities. The run of offers has a lot to do with Mausi’s physical gifts.

When a team has a bunch of commitments by late spring, it’s often categorized as a great start to recruiting. If a team happens to have only a few players pledged, it is sometimes portrayed as the coaching staff being selective in its offers. That would be the optimistic view. The cynic might say that recruiting isn’t going well. Where Michigan State falls is open to interpretation, but as May has begun and the coaching staff is on the road, the Spartans have just three commitments for the 2020 class.

Dallas Fincher was about 8 years old when he arrived at Michigan State for the youth clinic prior to the annual spring football game. Amid the swarm of kids running through drills at the Duffy Daugherty Building, he was nowhere to be found. That was because Fincher spotted Michigan State players in the weight room. “He went in and started getting autographs on his hat and forgot all about the camp,” Fincher’s father, Mark Fincher, a former Michigan State offensive lineman, recalled with a laugh.

Tre’Von Morgan is expected to send in his letter of intent after committing in early January. “He really came on strong as a senior,” said Allen Trieu, Midwest recruiting analyst for 247Sports.com. “He was a good prospect as a junior, but I think he became a great prospect as a senior and that’s why you saw several Power Five schools, including Michigan State, pull the trigger during the fall.”
