Michigan State has crossed the state border for its most recent commitment.

Friday night, three-star defensive end Kyle King out of New Palestine, Ind., gave his verbal commitment to the Spartans. He becomes the fifth player to pledge to Michigan State in the 2020 class, and is the program’s first prospect out of Indiana during this cycle.

“Thank you to the staff at MSU for giving me this great opportunity,” King wrote in his announcement on Twitter. “I am happy to announce I have COMMITTED TO MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY.”

King is ranked as the 12th-best player out of Indiana and is the No. 57 strong-side defensive end in the 2020 recruiting class. He had 17 offers, according to 247Sports, choosing Michigan State over Indiana, Purdue, Air Force, Ball State, Bowling Green and others.

At 6-foot-4, 240 pounds, King adds some nice size to Michigan State’s 2020 recruiting class. He’s the first defensive line player to commit this cycle and is just the second out-of-state prospect to join Mark Dantonio and company.

With King’s commitment, Michigan State’s 2020 recruiting class ranks 59th nationally and 10th in the B1G.
