The other player I’ll mention out of MSU’s four 4-stars is Dearborn (MI) Divine Child quarterback Theo Day, who was a high school teammate of Michigan’s Aidan Hutchinson. Day is a 6’5″, 197 lb. player who’s the #16 pro-style quarterback and #364 overall. He fielded offers from Georgia, Kentucky, Missouri, and Ole Miss, among others:
