We all know the saying, “early bird gets the worm”. That saying rang true for Michigan State when they received a verbal commitment from 3-star offensive tackle Spencer Brown. Brown, a Walled Lake Western, Mich. native, committed back in July of 2017.
In fact, Brown was the first prospect to commit to the Spartans for the class of 2019. Since then, he been advocating other top players in the state to join him in Mark Dantonio’s class. Lately, the 6-6 and 295 pound prospect has risen up recruiting boards and is receiving increased interest from programs around the country. LSU became the latest school to come knocking as they offered Brown on May 22.
Despite the allure of these offers, the No. 13 player in the state of Michigan remains committed to the Spartans according to a recent article by MLive’s Matt Wenzel.
“At the end of the day, I think it’s kind of just a blessing to have those options,” Brown told MLive. “But I’m MSU.”
Brown is a top-50 player at his position and No. 460 nationally according to 247 Sports.
