Four-star wide receiver Brauntae Johnson has locked in an official visit with Michigan State football for June 2.

Receivers have been the topic of conversation lately regarding Michigan State football.

A couple of weeks ago, Keon Coleman entered the transfer portal. Right before that, Jayden Reed was picked in the second round of the 2023 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers. And a few months prior, Germie Bernard entered the transfer portal and committed to Washington.

As if that wasn’t receiver overload in terms of offseason news, four-star Nick Marsh decommitted from the Spartans this spring in order to take some visits and check out other programs.

Oh yeah, and both Tyler Harrell and Jahdae Walker were top receiver transfer targets for Mel Tucker but they each committed elsewhere.

Well, the receiver news isn’t quite extinguished yet.

According to Steve Wiltfong of 247Sports, four-star top-150 wide receiver Brauntae Johnson has planned an official visit to Michigan State.

Johnson, a Fort Wayne, Ind., product, is set to visit East Lansing on June 2 and the only other official he has planned is to Purdue on June 23. This is a big official visit for Courtney Hawkins who is trying to reload the receiving corps after a busy offseason.

Hawkins has done a really solid job of recruiting top receivers while at Michigan State and while Marsh is the No. 1 priority, Johnson can’t be too far behind.

The four-star from Indiana is ranked the No. 127 overall prospect in the 2024 class, according to 247Sports. He’s also listed as an “athlete” — a position in which he’s ranked No. 8 nationally.

Mel Tucker is in desperate need of some recruiting momentum after losing his top two recruits in the 2024 class and he’ll have a chance to really bounce back in June with dozens of big-time official visits scheduled. Although there aren’t a handful of five-stars visiting this year as was the case last June, these are more attainable prospects given the season in which the Spartans just had.

Johnson, however, is a big fish.
