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.

With other offers from big name programs Florida and Michigan, Michigan State may have some competition for Brown before December’s early signing period.

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.

Other recruiting and roster news

Michigan State’s defensive line depth may have taken a hit as redshirt sophomore Kyonta Stallworth announced his intention to transfer on May 19.

The 6-3 and 289-pound defensive tackle out of Martin Luther King High School in Detroit played sparingly for the Spartans in 2017 with 11 total tackles in 6 games.

3-star defensive end Taurean Carter II (Mansfield, Texas) released his top ten schools. The list includes Florida, Oklahoma State, TCU, Purdue and Michigan State.

The 6-3 and 260-pound prospect is No. 49 among strong-side defensive ends and 96th in the state of Texas.

In basketball recruiting, 4-star forward Romeo Weems surprised everyone and verbally committed to DePaul. The New Haven, Mich. native had long since been considered a lock for Tom Izzo and the Spartans. Weems also had offers from Michigan, Ohio State and Oregon.
