EAST LANSING – Under Mel Tucker, Michigan State football has become wholly invested in recruiting – using the transfer portal or otherwise.
Last week, Rivals reported MSU sent out the eighth-most offers of any program in the country for the 2022 class (289 at that time).
Recently, three-star safety Trevon Howard, who the Spartans offered on September 10, listed Michigan State in his top-5 schools alongside Arizona, Colorado, USF, and Iowa State.
Howard plays for IMG Academy and is a top-25 ranked safety in his class and the 50th overall prospect in his home state.
As a freshman, the 6-foot-0, 175-pound defensive back finished with 102 tackles, including nine for a loss, two sacks, two fumble recoveries, one forced fumble, one interception, and 11 passes defended.
