It appears Michigan State is getting close to landing a huge prospect in the 2022 class.
Three different recruiting insiders with 247Sports put in crystal ball predictions on Monday that state Michigan State will land four-star defensive lineman Alex VanSumeren of Essexville, Mich.
Stephen Brooks, Justin Thind and Corey Robinson — who collectively have been wrong only once on 54 of their 2022 crystal ball predictions — each pegged VanSumeren to pick Michigan State. His brother, Ben, is also a Spartan after transferring from Michigan this offseason.
VanSumeren is ranked as the No. 27 defensive lineman and No. 179 overall prospect in the 2022 class by 247Sports. He is also ranked as the No. 4 player in the state of Michigan for the class.
He currently holds scholarship offers from numerous power programs, including Alabama, Clemson and Texas A&M. So if the Spartans are able to actually land VanSumeren, it would be arguably the best recruit new head coach Mel Tucker has gotten so far.
Keep an eye on his recruitment as a big announcement could be coming soon.
