Michigan State will have another shot at landing a class of 2025 recruit who had previously committed elsewhere.

Chris McCorkle III, a class of 2025 three-star cornerback from Florida, who had committed to Indiana back in April, announced on X, formerly known as Twitter, on Sunday that he has decommitted and that his recruitment is back open.

He posted the following:

"I wanna thank coach cignetti, coach Ojong & the whole staff at Indiana for giving me this opportunity of a lifetime. Although I enjoyed every last bit of my commitment with the university and the staff members, I've had long talks with god, my family & my coaches. I will be de-committing from Indiana University. Recruitment is open but I will be focusing more on myself, my growth and making sure my team and I are ready for this upcoming season!"

This announcement came just after his official visit to Michigan State, which should be a very promising sign for the Spartan faithful.

McCorkle, who plays for Cardinal Mooney High School in Sarasota Florida, is ranked the No. 77 class of 2025 recruit in Florida, according to 247Sports' composite rankings, and the No. 49 cornerback in his class.

The 6-foot-1, 172-pound cornerback has also received offers from Florida, Florida State, Illinois, Iowa, Purdue, Rutgers and West Virginia, among others. He has an upcoming official visit to Iowa on June 21.

According to Andrew Ivins of 247Sports, McCorkle posted 14 tackles, nine pass breakups and four interceptions last season.

McCorkle announced his offer from Michigan State in April 2023. His primary recruiters are Spartans cornerbacks coach Demetrice Martin and secondary coach Blue Adams.
