This isn’t the first time the Michigan State football program has handed out a scholarship offer to a Groveport Madison (Ohio) player late in the recruiting period. Back in the 2001 recruiting class there was Eric Smith, who would turn into a three-year starter at safety, become a third-round NFL draft pick, play six seasons in the NFL and later coach in the league. The second, from the 2010 class, you might remember his name: running back Le’Veon Bell.

Mark Dantonio and his staff struggled mightily to keep players at home. Only three prospects from the 2020 class are from Michigan, and none of them ranked among the state’s top 13 players. Keeping top-level talent within state borders will likely be a high priority MSU as it shifts focus to the 2021 recruiting class. As of now, the Spartans do not have any commitments in the 2021 class, but that could change soon with several in-state offers on the table.

This is a glass half-full or glass half-empty type of class for Michigan State. The half-empty side will point to a class that is not as high in the rankings as last year’s class as reason for concern. The half-full side will say that Michigan State under Mark Dantonio has been successful even without the benefit of top 15-20 national recruiting classes, and this class is again full of good high school players who will be developed into college players who play above their high school rating.
