East Lansing, MI – Brandon Baldwin, a 2021 JUCO offensive tackle from Independence Community College (the same school featured on Netflix's Last Chance U, but he missed it by a year) announced he was coming home Monday afternoon.

For Baldwin, home is Southfield, MI, and after spending a year in Kansas, he decided to commit to the Michigan State Spartans.

He is the third prospect to commit to Mel Tucker and MSU in the last couple of days, alongside four-star DT Rayshaun Benny and '22 OG Kristian Phillips.

The 6-foot-7, 315-pound lineman, is a top-15 recruit in his home state and the No. 4 tackle in the class of 2021.

He held offers from Maryland, Louisville, Eastern Michigan, and Liberty before ultimately picking the Spartans.
