Michigan State’s class of 2015 has been mostly wrapped up for some time now, but there are a few spots remaining.
The focus has rested for a while on adding another linebacker, defensive lineman and then another player at any spot seemingly.
Here are the final names to really lock in on for the class of 2015 as Michigan State looks to close out strong in what already is a very solid class.
The list starts with the player that seems mostly likely to wind up at Michigan State. It has been an interesting process for McKee. He has been expected to commit a few times to MSU, but slowed down the process as other schools came into the mix and it was unsure if MSU was willing to accept a commitment. There is little to no doubt at this point that MSU wants him in the class and he is slated for an official visit this weekend. He could leave a Spartan and be one of the final pieces of the puzzle.
Peat took an official visit to Michigan State in the fall, but soon thereafter commitment to UCLA. He since has decommitted from UCLA, but still could wind up with the Bruins. With Jim Mora’s name being thrown around for other coaching openings and possibly heading to the NFL, could MSU be the ultimate destination? Time will tell, but defensive line coach Ron Burton has a good relationship with Peat’s father. He could be a perfect fit as a Marcus Rush-type player in the MSU defense. He is expected to announce on signing day.
If not McKee, this is the linebacker possibly most likely to wind up in the class. Sapp has yet to take an official visit to MSU, but could take one next weekend. But does he make it out of an official visit at Tennessee this weekend before he commits? That will dictate whether or not a visit to MSU happens and if he winds up a member of the class at MSU.
Kelly has been a different recruitment, but Michigan State was the first to offer a long time ago. There have been points it seemed like he would end his recruitment by committing to MSU. Minnesota was in the picture early and it looked like it was an MSU-Minnesota battle. Now, it looks like Michigan is in the picture heavily and there were points where it looked like he was going to commit to the Wolverines. Tennessee is in the picture now as well. Where will he wind up? It might be as unpredictable as any, but it does not seem like it will be MSU.
Hunt is a new name on the radar on the defensive line and is a unique circumstance. He is set to take a two-year Mormon mission, so he essentially is a 2017 recruit. Michigan State recently offered and he is expected to take an official visit to Michigan State next weekend.
Chewins was recently offered by MSU with something similar to what Jack Conklin was given – but he is a very different prospect. He is committed to Miami (Ohio) and had a handful of offers. But MSU is expecting he can take a jump and become a player as an offensive tackle after being a tight end in high school. He has bulked up plenty heading into his senior year and now is around 235. If he can add the extra weight, he could be a very athletic tackle for Michigan State in the future. He is weighing his options still and could set up an official visit, but has been to MSU many times.
