Michigan State football commit Syair Torrence is being pushed by Michigan after receiving an offer on Monday.

After a slow start to the 2024 recruiting class, Michigan State football started to gain traction in June and July.

In fact, the Spartans landed nine commitments in the months of June and July, headlined by Nick Marsh and Anthony Carrie. Both of those guys are four-stars who will undoubtedly have a big role in the future of the program.

Another recent commit that should have a major role down the line is three-star Syair Torrence.

The former Syracuse commit reopened his recruitment in the spring and even gave the Orange another shot with an official visit. In the end, though, it was Mel Tucker and Co. who made the biggest impression. They “flipped” him from Syracuse but another program is trying to do the same.

That program is Michigan.

On Monday, Torrence announced an offer from Michigan via Twitter.

To me, this means a couple of things. One, Jim Harbaugh has his sights on Michigan State. And two, Torrence is much better than his ranking says. He’s clearly one of those diamond-in-the-rough players and Michigan is starting to see the talent level. I was surprised that more big-time schools didn’t come knocking.

Still, I’d be shocked if Torrence wasn’t completely locked in with Michigan State, especially after his first decommitment from Syracuse. He fell in love with Michigan State quickly.

And after listening to Tucker speak at ‘Thy Shadows’, it’s clear that he speaks openly about the Michigan rivalry to recruits. They know how he feels about the Wolverines and if you’re committing to MSU, you’re probably going to feel the same way.

So let’s hope Torrence has the Tucker mentality instilled in him.

But hey, if they want to make a push and (hopefully) get rejected in the end, so be it. All he has to do is look at the spread from BBQ at the Big House to realize East Lansing is home.
