It is the start of a brand new year in football, the 2021 edition of football for high school, college and professional.
The high school season got kicked off this past weekend for several states across the country.
In this series, we will look at how Michigan State’s commits fared in their games from the prior week.
Mel Tucker has brought a lot of excitement around the program, especially when it comes to recruiting, and being able to keep up with how the newest Spartans are competing at the high school ranks will continue to bring excitement.
QB Katin Houser - St John Bosco (CA)

Being in a tandem, Houser isn't always on the field so he has to take advantage when he is. In the Braves week one win over Miami Central, Houser went 9-for-15 through the air and 86 yards.
TE Jack Nickel - Milton (GA)

S Malik Spencer - Buford (GA)
https://twitter.com/lukewinstel/status/1429868119993065478?s=20 Buford won a huge game against fellow powerhouse North Cobb 35-27. Michigan State safety commit Malik Spencer was seen making plays on both sides of the ball, catching touchdown passes at wide receiver and ball-hawking in the defensive backfield.
