Michigan State lost a talented wide receiver from its 2019 recruiting class over the weekend.
On Saturday, three-star wide receiver Alante Brown announced his decommitment from Michigan State. He gave the Spartans his verbal pledge in June, but had a change of heart as National Signing Day approaches.
Brown made his announcement via Twitter.
“After speaking with the Michigan State coaching staff, it has been decided that it would be best for us to go in different directions,” Brown wrote. “I am open to any school that is interested in me.”
