Mel Tucker and his Spartans hit the recruiting trail hard last week, sending out multiple offers to prospects from different classes.
On Friday, three-star cornerback Steffan Johnson released his top-5 schools, a list that included the Spartans.
The other universities included Rutgers, Florida Atlantic, FIU, and USF.
90% of the Crystal Ball predictions say Johnson will commit to Tucker and the Michigan State Spartans; however, the school he decommitted from (Rutgers) in July is still in the mix considering the Scarlet Knights are a part of his final grouping.
According to 247Sports Composite Rankings, Johnson is the No. 207 recruit in the state of Florida and the No. 129 prospect at his position for 2021.
The 6-foot-0, 160-pound corner is high school teammates with Michigan State commit Charles Brantley, another reason the Spartans are thought to be the favorite to land Johnson.
In 2019, he received snaps at quarterback, starting seven games after an abundance of injuries forced him under center.
Johnson helped lead his team to an 8-5 record while reaching the 7A state semifinals.
