Michigan State football: Major 4-star RB schedules official visit

An elite back will be on campus in June.

Michigan State football will be getting a big visit from four-star running back Anthony Carrie this summer.

Four-star running back Anthony Carrie has set an official visit date with Michigan State football for the weekend of June 23.

Carrie is from Tampa, Fla., and is ranked as a top-300 player in the 2024 class and the 20th-best running back according to the 247Sports Composite.

This will be the second time this year that Carrie will make the trip to East Lansing as he also took an unofficial visit on March 25. He also visited Michigan State last summer before his junior season, so this will mark the third time Carrie has visited.

The four-star back is a very intriguing prospect, currently listed at 6-foot-0 and 185 pounds. He has great vision and fast footwork allowing him to avoid tacklers due to his speed. While he is not the most physical runner in the class and is not as likely to run defenders over, he by no means avoids contact and loves hitting his defenders. Carrie has had a very productive high school career thus far totaling over 2,600 and 43 touchdowns while averaging a little over 7.0 yards per carry. This is the type of production that MSU needs out of the backfield as we have not seen much success at the position in recent years outside of Kenneth Walker III.

While on his last visit to MSU, Carrie released his top-six schools that included Notre Dame, South Carolina, North Carolina, Ole Miss, and Oklahoma along with the Spartans. Two other schools also have official visits set up with him in June with Notre Dame hosting him on June 10 and North Carolina hosting him on June 16. However, South Carolina appears to be the current favorite to land the talented back as they currently hold four 247Sports crystal balls to land his commitment.

A lot can change in the month of June during official visit season, and Carrie scheduling a third visit to East Lansing shows that there is still major interest there.

MSU has had trouble recently recruiting the running back position out of high school as the Spartans haven’t signed a four-star prospect since LJ Scott in the 2015 class. Carrie would immediately become one of the top names in the running back room and someone that would be able to develop and play significant snaps likely beginning in his second season at Michigan State.

Michigan State’s 2024 class currently consists of four commits with two four-star corners and two three-star offensive linemen. With the summer recruiting season about to kick into high gear, look for Mel Tucker to start adding recruits to this class in a hurry, with one of those hopefully being the talented Anthony Carrie.
