Michigan State could be close to adding another four-star prospect to their 2023 class.

Steve Wiltfong — director of recruiting for 247Sports — submitted a crystal ball prediction in favor of Michigan State for four-star defensive lineman Jalen Thompson on Saturday. Thompson hails from Detroit, and is slated to announce his college decision on Aug. 22.

Thompson ranks as the No. 30 defensive lineman and No. 195 overall prospect in 247Sports’ composite rankings. He ranks as the No. 3 player in Michigan in the 2023 class.

Thompson holds offers from 30 programs, according to 247Sports. He is reportedly considering Cincinnati, Ohio State, Penn State, Pitt and Michigan State at this time.

Thompson has long been projected to end up at Michigan State from other reliable recruiting insiders, such as Justin Thind, Corey Robinson, Stephen Brooks and Allen Trieu. So it isn’t surprising to see Wiltfong also enter a crystal ball for the Spartans to get Thompson, but with it being a more recent submission it at least shows Michigan State is considered to still be the favorite in this race. We will see soon enough if that is actually the case.
