Michigan State football is hoping recruiting picks up soon. It got some good news from the 2025 class on Tuesday.

The Michigan State football coaching staff has seemingly made it a priority to revamp the secondary this year in recruiting. The 2023 and 2024 recruiting classes as well as the portal class have seen their share of defensive backs targeted. And 2025’s class is starting out the same as well.

One of the more highly touted cornerbacks in the 2025 class announced his top 10 schools on Tuesday and the Spartans made the cut.

Per Sean Williams of Rivals, the No. 5 corner in the 2025 class, Tarrion Grant, lists MSU among his 10 finalists. The top 10 schools for him are as followed: Michigan State, Purdue, Michigan, Arkansas, Nebraska, Virginia Tech, LSU, Miami, Louisville, and Tennessee.

Tarrion visited East Lansing around the first part of June.

The 6-foot-3, 175-pound corner hails from Murfreesboro, Tenn. That is the same city that 2024 Michigan State defensive back commit Jaylen Thompson is from. He is currently listed as the 133rd player nationally per the 247Sports Composite in the 2025 class. Thompson has played a crucial part in Tarrion’s recruitment thus far. Grant even mentioned that he and Thompson have discussed teaming up in an interview earlier this month with On3’s Jason Killop.

Grant is a dual-sport athlete. He runs track at Siegel High School along with starring in football. He has the prototypical size and length you look for in a corner. He has fast hands and footwork, along with elite speed. He posts a 10.7-second 100-meter dash in track. And he really has a plethora of traits you look for in a corner. He could be a very big get for the Spartans, should they be able to land him.

So far, Grant holds 21 total offers. Per Rivals, he has unofficially visited MSU, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, and Middle Tennessee State. Michigan State being one of the first schools outside the state of Tennessee shows that the Spartans are off to a good start in his recruitment.

No timetable has been placed for his decision or potentially narrowing down more schools.

Look for the Spartans to continue pursuing him heavily. Look for some of the bigger FBS schools to throw their names into the Grant race soon as well.
