Michigan State will be holding walk-on tryouts for interested players in 2022, the program announced Wednesday morning.

The tryout for walk-on players will take place on Thursday, Sept. 8. Prior to the tryout, walk-ons can attend a meeting on Sunday, Sept. 4 at 10 a.m. ET. This meeting will provide more information and details about the tryout.

The Spartans are inviting potential newcomers to see if they can make the team. The tryouts will be taking place less than 1 week after the start of the season. If any walk-on makes the team, they will be joining the team after the first game of the season.

Michigan State is used to inviting walk-ons to join the team and the walk-ons eventually make a difference when they get playing time. It is not easy for a walk-on to play, but Michigan State has shown that it is willing to give non-scholarship players a chance to play football.

Most recently, Jack Conklin and Kenny Willekes proved to be 2 walk-ons who joined the Spartans and made an impact. Conklin went from being a walk-on to a first-round draft pick in 2016. The Spartans might be able to find another diamond in the rough in September.

Michigan State’s season starts at home against Western Michigan on Friday, Sept. 2.
