East Lansing, MI – Mel Tucker and the Michigan State football coaching staff have been hitting the recruiting trail hard since the season ended and have made another student-athlete interested in the Spartans.
James Monds III, a 2022 three-star cornerback out of Fort Pierce Westwood High School, announced his top-13 schools, and MSU made it.
The other 12 universities include Kansas State, Clemson, Nebraska, Mississippi State, Penn State, Kansas, Wisconsin, Michigan, Miami, Indiana, Cincinnati, and Howard.
The 5-foot-10, 177-pound defensive back is a top-75 recruit in Florida and the No. 58 prospect at his position for '22.
In 2019, Monds finished the year with 10 pass break-ups, three forced fumbles, and five interceptions.
Spartan Nation spoke with Monds in October, where he raved about Tucker and his staff.
