East Lansing, MI – It's been a busy week for Mel Tucker and the Michigan State Spartans; since Sunday, MSU has landed four prospects, including three-star cornerback Steffan Johnson.
"First, I would like to thank my family, my teammates, my coaches, and all of those who have supported me throughout my recruiting journey," Johnson wrote via Twitter. "I would also like to thank all of the coaches that have recruited me and blessed me with the opportunity to play college football.
"After taking some time to re-evaluate my commitment and enjoy the recruiting process, I would like to announce that I will be committing to Michigan State University."
Johnson, initially intent on attending Rutgers, decommitted twelve days after Michigan State offered him a scholarship.
He now joins his teammate at Venice High School and another future Spartan Charles Brantley, a '21 three-star cornerback who committed to MSU on April 30.
Mel Tucker now has added 18 players to his 2021 recruiting class, and Johnson is the fifth defensive back alongside Brantley, Antoine Booth, A.J. Kirk, and Michael Gravely Jr.
