Mel Tucker added an athletic, long-armed edge rusher for Michigan State football's 2022 recruiting class.
Chase Carter from Minneapolis announced his commitment to the Spartans on Tuesday night on Instagram. The 6-foot-6, 215-pound defensive end picked MSU over Iowa, along with offers from Nebraska, Iowa State and Central Michigan.
The Minnehaha Academy product is rated the No. 7 player in Minnesota and the No. 129 defensive end nationally by the 247Sports Composite rankings. He also reportedly had basketball offers from Minnesota (where his father Randy was forward in the early 1990s), Vanderbilt and West Virginia.
Nicknamed "Simba," Carter plays for a talent-loaded Minnehaha hoops team that produced two-sport star and potential NBA lottery pick Jalen Suggs and Chet Holmgren, both of whom picked Gonzaga for hoops. Another former two-sport teammate of Carter's, Terry Lockett Jr., is a sophomore wide receiver who made his debut last fall for MSU. Suggs was Lockett's quarterback in football.
Carter becomes the Spartans' 15th commitment for 2022 from nine different states and the first defensive lineman in the class.
