Last year, Michigan State struggled tremendously with running the football, and it was partially due to the lack of protection provided by the offensive line. The running backs have trained all offseason to get to the point they need to be, but the O-line has to do its part as well.

Depending on how the O-line performs this coming season, securing O-line recruits from the class of 2025 could be huge.

One of those prospects the Spartans are hoping to add is Justin Bell, a three-star offensive tackle from Macomb, Michigan. Bell announced his offer from Michigan State on X, formerly known as Twitter, on Monday.

247Sports has Bell ranked 81st among offensive tackles in the class of 2025 and 21st among recruits in Michigan. Bell also has offers from Indiana, Kansas, West Virginia and Army, among others.

Bell is set to officially visit Michigan State on Friday, and hopefully, for Spartan fans, Coach Jonathan Smith can get the job done and make a perfect first impression. So far, players have said nothing but good things following their visits to East Lansing.

Under Coach Smith, Michigan State faces the crucial task of intensifying its gameplay to compete effectively. A balanced strategy of mixing running and passing plays is essential to keep opponents guessing and maintain offensive versatility.

Integrating Bell into the Spartans' offensive line room could bolster their performance significantly. Bell's experience and skill set can provide the stability and strength needed to protect the quarterback and create openings for the running game.

The effectiveness of Michigan State's offense hinges on its ability to execute plays with precision and speed. By incorporating a dynamic mix of running and passing, they can exploit weaknesses in opposing defenses and keep the game unpredictable. Running plays not only chew up the clock but also wear down defenses, while well-executed passing plays capitalize on opportunities downfield.

Upgrading the offensive line with a player of Bell's caliber is crucial for sustaining drives and maximizing scoring chances. His presence can elevate the team's overall performance, allowing quarterbacks more time to find open receivers and opening up running lanes for their backs.
