2018 Class Ranking: #5 in Big Ten, #25 nationally. Michigan State has four 4-stars and sixteen 3-stars signed.

Cream of the 2018 Crop: Detroit (MI) Cass Tech cornerback Kalon Gervin is the highest ranked player in MSU’s class. He’s the #19 cornerback and #179 overall. He had offers from Alabama, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon, and Penn State, along with many others; the offer from Michigan was extended early but the Wolverines, who normally recruit Cass Tech hard, didn’t pursue him with much vigor. 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:

Hit the jump for a look at MSU’s 2019 class.

2019 Class Ranking: #3 in Big Ten, #11 nationally. Michigan State has three 4-stars and one 3-star committed.

Cream of the 2019 Crop: Belleville (MI) Belleville cornerback Julian Barnett recently committed to the Spartans. He’s a 6’1″, 186 lb. prospect who’s ranked as a 4-star, the #3 cornerback, and #59 overall. Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Notre Dame, and Ohio State felt he was worthy of offering, but for whatever reason, Michigan never extended an offer. The other 4-stars are Oak Park (MI) Oak Park QB Dwan Mathis, the #5 dual-threat guy, and Walled Lake (MI) Western OT Spencer Brown, the #36 offensive tackle, neither of whom have been offered by Michigan, either.¬†Barnett’s highlights:
