Michigan State gets first recruiting commitment of Mel Tucker era from Georgia RB
The first commitment of the Mel Tucker era at Michigan State is officially in.
On Sunday, three-star running back Jordan Simmons signed his National Letter of Intent, making his commitment to the Spartans official. The native of Powder Springs, Georgia had delayed signing on the dotted line when Mark Dantonio opted to step down a day before National Signing Day.
Simmons tweeted out several photos showing his commitment to MSU. He also wrote “It’s Official,” in his Twitter post.
