MSU Football Lands First ’22 Commitment in OG Kristian Phillips

Michigan State and Mel Tucker land their first commitment from the 2022 recruiting class.
Publish date:

East Lansing, MI – After Michigan State was hammered 49-7 by the Iowa Hawkeyes, Mel Tucker couldn't end the weekend without providing some good news to Spartan Nation.

By now, MSU fans know the importance of recruiting under the first-year Spartan head coach, and on Sunday night, Michigan State landed its first commit for the class of 2022.

The Spartans offered Kristian Phillips, an offensive guard out of Georgia, in August, and yesterday he said, "We are extremely excited to announce that I have officially committed @MSU_Football."

Phillips currently plays for Salem High School and is unranked; however, Chris Kapilovic clearly sees tremendous talent within the 6-foot-4, 310-pound lineman.

Before becoming a future Spartan, he held offers from Arizona State and Delaware State.
