Getting a second visit from David Stone in three weeks, Michigan State football is feeling the love from the 2024 five-star.

For the second time in three weeks, five-star defensive lineman David Stone is taking a visit on his own dime to East Lansing to check out Michigan State football.

On Jan. 14, Stone took a trip to East Lansing for an unofficial and he posted a question on social media this week for his followers: where should I visit next? He had Texas A&M and back to Michigan State as options and the Spartans were the poll winners.

At the time, it felt just like a random poll that wouldn’t actually dictate where he’d actually visit, but Stone took it to heart and decided to show love to Michigan State for the second time in three weeks.

It’s not common for a five-star out-of-state recruit to visit a program twice in a matter of three weeks on his own dime. That just doesn’t happen unless you’re Alabama or Georgia.

Stone is the No. 4 overall recruit and No. 1 defensive lineman in the 2024 class on 247Sports and he just released a top 10 which included Michigan State. Mel Tucker will have a tough time trying to fend off home-state Oklahoma and other top programs such as Texas A&M and Miami (his other two scheduled visits over the next two months). But the relationship he’s built with the Spartan staff is going to outlast some of these other programs.

Stone is showing Michigan State a ton of love and this honestly feels like a special recruitment that could yield Tucker’s first-ever five-star pledge. It’s only a matter of time.

What’s going to help the Spartans’ chances with Stone is having his mom on campus for the unofficial visit, getting the last official for him in the fall, and being good friends with Bai Jobe.
