Michigan State football makes 4-star LB Kamar Mothudi’s top 5

Can the Spartans finally beat out Oregon for a top recruit?



Michigan State football

Michigan State football made the cut for one of the top prospects from the state of California, four-star linebacker Kamar Mothudi.

Not long ago, Kamar Mothudi announced his official visit schedule, and the schools he plans on seeing officially make up his top five. Michigan State football made the cut.

Washington, Oregon, Texas, and Utah also made the cut and the Ducks look like the favorites early on for the Valley Village, Calif., product.

The Spartans are hoping for more good news in the month of June as official visits get underway. Mothudi announced recently that he would be taking a visit to East Lansing on June 9 right in the middle of his schedule. Oregon gets the last visit which gives the Ducks a leg up on the rest of the competition, but Mel Tucker can sell the fact that he has a strong recent history of developing top-tier linebackers.

Cal Haladay and Jacoby Windmon are prime examples of strong linebacker play at Michigan State and Tucker is partially responsible for them being one of the best duos in the Big Ten.

Behind Haladay and Windmon are Aaron Brule, Darius Snow, Jordan Hall, and Ma’a Gaoteote.

That’s not a bad linebacker room. And another big selling point could be the fact that Hall is likely to see playing time as a true freshman. The best players will play, regardless of class.

Mothudi may have just 14 offers, but he has the look of one of the best linebackers in the nation. In fact, 247Sports has him listed as the No. 173 overall player and 17th-best linebacker in the 2024 class.

Michigan State currently has zero linebackers committed in its 2024 class but it does have one four-star defender already in cornerback Jaylen Thompson.

While I see Mothudi going to Oregon, he would fit in quite nicely at linebacker in East Lansing.
