As for the Spartans, TE is a particular position of emphasis for the team this offseason. Ademola Faleye, a 6-foot-7 prospect out of FCS Norfolk State, has also committed to the Spartans, along with former Wisconsin TE Jaylan Franklin.

It will be interesting to see how these pieces get deployed at Michigan State.
