The 2017 Michigan State football season is just about to start, but the program’s future is being battled among recruiters for next year’s class of freshman.
Rivals released their rankings of the top 25 recruits in each state. For now, the state of Michigan is wide open for the taking, with top recruits being spread throughout the country and some of the state’s best players still undecided. But Michigan State has a chance to rebuild the program in a hurry with a big class of homegrown players.
Among the top 25, both Wisconsin and Michigan have an edge on the Spartans, both schools with three recruits while State has only two. Kentucky is also slightly ahead of MSU with two recruits of their own, but ranking ahead of Michigan State’s.
