East Lansing, MI – MSU football is in the running to land one of the top recruits from Michigan for the class of 2022.
Four-star athlete Dillon Tatum out of West Bloomfield High School released his top-10 schools, and Michigan State made the cut.
The Spartans are joined by nine of the sports' biggest programs, including USC, Baylor, Penn State, Ohio State, Nebraska, Georgia, Wisconsin, Notre Dame, and Michigan.
Tatum, a 5-foot-11, 190-pound offensive threat, is the fifth-best prospect in his home state and the No. 12 player in the '22 class.
He will remain a top target for Mel Tucker and co.; making the initial list is a big step in the right direction, and it will be interesting to see where they go from here.
