Recruiting Snapshot: Michigan State

Hubbard (OH) Hubbard running back Larry Scott (#3)
2015 Team Ranking: #22. Michigan State signed five 4-stars and sixteen 3-stars.

Cream of 2015 Crop: Far and away, Michigan State's top signee was Hubbard (OH) Hubbard running back Larry Scott (see below). The 6'2", 228 lb. bruiser was a 4-star, the #6 running back, and #59 overall. I was also high on Detroit (MI) King offensive guard/defensive tackle Kyonta Stallworth, the #9 offensive guard and #185 overall player in the class.

2016 Team Ranking: #9. With a recent flurry of commitments, Michigan State has two 4-stars and ten 3-stars verbally pledged. This ranking may jump a little bit in early June, when two highly touted defensive ends (Indiana's Auston Robertson and Illinois' Josh King) plan to announce their decisions.

Cream of 2016 Crop: The Spartans' top two commits are both wide receivers. Cleveland (OH) Benedictine's Justin Layne is #149 overall, and Sicklerville (NJ) Timber Creek's Cameron Chambers is #183. Michigan State also earned a pledge from former Michigan verbal commit Messiah DeWeaver from Huber Heights (OH) Wayne. All five of the 2016 players mentioned here held Michigan offers.

  1. Michigan State indeed come a long way from the gutter that they were in for decades. I don't think M fans realize this yet, but as long as Dantonio is there, rivalry with Michigan State is just as big and just as important as our rivalry with Ohio State.

    Dantonio and his team will come with everything they have to knock out Michigan, every single year. Dantonio's about 10 years older than Meyer and Harbaugh (59 this year), but he'll be around for the next decade and consistently fight for the conference title and playoff spot.
