Some of the top Michigan State football targets in 2024 have taken notice of the Spartans’ recent hot recruiting stretch.

Don’t look now, but Michigan State football recruiting is heating up.

The Spartans have landed four commitments over the past couple of weeks and word on the street is that more are on the way.

Michigan State went from a fringe top-75 class in the country up to No. 59 over the past couple of weeks and Mel Tucker isn’t done yet. Although official visit season is over, Michigan State still has some major momentum on its side.

Don’t believe me? Well, all you have to do is look at the social media accounts of a couple of Michigan State’s top 2024 targets.

Following the commitment of four-star running back Anthony Carrie, four-star receiver Bredell Richardson tweeted out something interesting:

Richardson is teammates with Carrie at Carrollwood Day in Tampa and he also listed Michigan State in his top four recently. This could be a good sign that the Spartans will get an official from him this fall. He only took one trip to UCF this month and it looks like he’s saving his visits. Michigan State has the advantage of having his teammate committed while also needing receivers.

He’s the No. 283 overall recruit in the country, so he’d slot in right behind Carrie in Michigan State’s class if he were to commit to the Spartans.

Richardson isn’t the only target to realize that the Spartans are getting hot. Four-star linebacker Dylan Williams, too, tweeted out a picture of him in a Michigan State uniform with an eyeballs emoji. This came shortly after Syair Torrence committed.

Williams took a trip to Michigan State on June 2, but some believe he’s an Oregon lean. He has been showing Michigan State a ton of love lately, however.

It’s good to finally see momentum on Michigan State’s side. It’s even better to see recruits taking notice.
