Michigan State’s offensive line is getting a boost for 2022 with Friday’s news that a key piece is returning.

Jarrett Horst, who started the first 8 games of the 2021 season at left tackle, announced on social media that he is returning to East Lansing. Horst missed the final 4 games of the season due to injury but was named an All-B1G honorable mention by coaches and the media.

Without the dynamic Kenneth Walker for next season, the Spartans will need to improve their line in any way possible. Getting Horst back from injury for 2022 will be a big start.

Horst started his career at Ellsworth Community College in Iowa before playing 2 seasons at Arkansas State. He made an instant impact with the Spartans after transferring from the Red Wolves following 2020.

Along with Horst, the offense is also getting back leading receiver Jayden Reed. The work of Reed and QB Payton Thorne will bring a bit of stability to an offense that must adjust to life post-Kenneth Walker in 2022.
