We continue our countdown of the 52 Michigan State Spartans to watch during the 2016 college football season.

To remember one of the best Michigan State squads, Spartan Digest brings you Spartan 52 for 2016. Why “52”? To remember the 1952 team coached by Clarence Lester “Biggie” Munn that went 9-0 winning a National Championship by being voted No. 1 in both the AP and Coaches’ polls. Munn was also named the AFCA Coach of the Year. So to start our official countdown to the season we announce the 52 most important Spartans for 2016.

#32 Kyonta Stallworth

A trend in our countdown has been guys who could play vital roles along the defensive line.  Stallworth was listed as the third team nose tackle in the spring but could see a bump in that position by the end of fall camp.

Last season sat and watched as he redshirted.

WHY HE MADE THE COUNTDOWN

Inside defensive line play will be a major concern when camp opens.  Players need to step up and Stallworth should see a chance to grab some playing time.  He doesn't need to be a starter with Malik McDowell ahead of him, but quality reps would be a major boost to the front line.
