Fay is the seventh player to commit to Michigan State in the 2021 class, all of which have come in the month of April. He’s the third out-of-state prospect.

Fay stands 6-foot-5 and weighs 210 pounds, giving him a nice frame for the quarterback position. He’s ranked as the No. 36 pro-style quarterback in this year’s class and received plenty of interest on the recruiting front, getting 12 other offers along with Michigan State. He chose the Spartans over Boise State, Boston College, Illinois, Indiana, Memphis, Pitt and Rutgers.

With Fay’s commitment, Michigan State has jumped inside the top 30 in 247Sports’ Composite rankings, listed at No. 28. The Spartans are No. 9 in the B1G. Below are some of Fay’s high school highlights.
