Michigan State has landed a transfer linebacker from the transfer portal on Thursday.

Mississippi State’s Aaron Brule has officially announced his commitment to the Spartans via Twitter.

This is a big-time get for Mel Tucker as Brule has been a staple on the Bulldogs defense for the last four years. He finished with 142 total tackles, 18 tackles-for-losses, and 8 sacks during his time with the program.

Brule’s best individual season came in 2020 when he had 76 total tackles (30 solo) along with 4 sacks, 1 fumble recovery, and 3 passes defended.

He helped Mississippi State to a 7-5 season this year and finished with 53 total tackles (23 solo) along with 3 sacks.

Before originally committing to Mississippi State, Brule was a 3-star prospect and the No. 17 player in his home state (Louisiana), per 247Sports Composite.

He was also the No. 465 player nationally, regardless of position.
