Publish date:

EAST LANSING – Michigan State football is a finalist for another offensive lineman in the 2022 recruiting class.

Three-star offensive tackle Ka'Marii Landers is choosing between the Spartans and Kentucky on May 9.

The Dearborn native is the No. 23 recruit in Michigan and the 74th prospect for his respective class.

Landers held offers from Buffalo, Cincinnati, Indiana, Kent State, Michigan, Nebraska, Oregon, Toledo, and West Virginia before narrowing it down to MSU and the Wildcats.

Michigan State has five players committed to its 2022 class featuring three offensive linemen in Kristian Phillips, Ashton Lepo, and Gavin Broscious.

"You need every position, but you've got to have those guys up front," MSU offensive line coach and run game coordinator Chris Kapilovic said. "(Mel Tucker) knows it starts in the trenches on both sides of the ball."

All four individuals fit the size profile Tucker and Kapilovic looks for up front. Broscious (out of Arizona) is 6-foot-5 and 305-pounds; Lepo (out of Grand Haven) is 6-foot-7 and 270; Phillips (out of Georgia) is 6-foot-5 and 340, and Landers is 6-foot-5 and 300.
