|Hubbard (OH) Hubbard running back Larry Scott (#3)|
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.
