Michigan State's 2021 Recruiting Class Moving Up in Rankings

Michigan State's recent commits have improved the recruiting class from 13th in the Big Ten to No. 5, and No. 66 nationally to No. 23.

Michigan State recruiting is on a roll with the class of 2021. Michigan State was ranked 13 out of 14 in the Big Ten and ranked No. 66 nationally. 

Last week, Rivals had an update saying, “Michigan State’s 2021 recruiting class is now 23 in the nation in average star rating.” They are now also 5 in the Big Ten.

Talk about Michigan State and Mel Tucker having drive; improving almost two and a half times better than they were in the Big Ten and doing almost three times better than they were sitting nationally.

Michigan State’s 15 commits may not be as many commits as other schools, but they are recruiting and committing three-to-four-star athletes. 

Spartan Avenue thinks that if Michigan State continues to recruit at this high level that they will end up in the top 25 range.

With the continuation of the dead period, the class of 2021 is still visiting Michigan State on their own time, and others are committing without even touring the campus.

Athletes are still not able to have an official visit to the campus or talk to coaches face-to-face because of the dead period. Not to mention that the original end date, April 15, has now been extended five and a half months, changing five times and is now set for September 30.

To me, the athletes who have committed so far, show hope in Michigan State. They want to become Spartans and win. The MSU fight song does say “it’s specialty is winning,” and that’s what the class of 2021 wants to work hard to do. 

These athletes have the determination, and they have the fight to win. They also have the size, thanks to Mel Tucker’s strategy in recruiting guys over 6-0.

Another key component to the process is offensive line coach Chris Kapilovic. Coming from Colorado to Michigan State with Tucker, Kapilovic greatly improved the Buffaloes offensive line in a year. 

His offensive line is beefing up and he’s improving them to possibly be the best that Michigan State has seen in a couple of seasons.

The suspense is how the class of 2021 will contribute to the Spartans in the upcoming years.
