Michigan State football may be close to landing one of the better running backs in the 2024 class, four-star Anthony Carrie.

Saturday could be a big day for Michigan State football.

While the biggest official visit weekend of the year is still going on, Mel Tucker and the Spartans may soon be receiving some good news from a recent four-star visitor.

Anthony Carrie announced on Twitter on Saturday morning that he would be committing at 6 p.m.

The four-star running back was on campus on June 9 and word on the street was that he was close to committing then. There was even talk that he was going to commit in the week following his Michigan State visit around the time that Reggie Powers did. It never happened.

Eventually, Carrie took his trip to North Carolina and his two announced finalists were Michigan State and the Tar Heels.

Now, it looks like Michigan State may have the lead here with a commitment imminent.

In fact, crystal balls from MSU insiders Corey Robinson and Justin Thind were placed for the Spartans to land the four-star running back on Saturday morning.

All signs are pointing to Carrie being a Spartan.

This would be a great development as the recruiting class needs some juice. It’s sitting at five commitments right now but this recruiting weekend could yield some great results. This would definitely give Tucker and the staff the boost it needs.

Carrie is ranked the No. 273 overall prospect and No. 22 running back in the class, per the 247Sports Composite. He would be the third four-star running back to commit to Tucker. The other two, Audric Estime and Kedrick Reescano, flipped to Notre Dame and Ole Miss, respectively. Tucker is trying to hold on to one, and this could be his first four-star running back signee.

Michigan State is also trying to land four-star Jason Brown at the running back position. He’s on campus this weekend and many believe the Spartans are in a good spot with him.
