Michigan State loses in-state Class of 2022 O-line recruit
Michigan State OT recruit Devin Runnels has announced that he isn’t going to attend Michigan State anymore. He was set to join the Spartans this fall on a PWO scholarship per Cory Linsner of Spartans Wire.
Runnels stated in a Twitter post at noon on Sunday that he is now committed to play college football at Mississippi Valley State. He is listed at 6-foot-6, 330 pounds per the 247Sports Composite. He attends Beecher High School in Mount Morris, Michigan.
Here’s what Runnels had to say about his decision:
“I would like to thank the spartan nation for the love and support,” said Runnels. “After long talks with my family, friends, and coaches about my future I would like to announce that I will be de-committing from Michigan State University. With that being said I will be taking my talents to MVSU, a D1 HBCU on a Full Ride Scholarship”

With the likes of Travis Hunter committing to an HBCU like Jackson State, we could see even more players follow in his footsteps.
It’ll be interesting to see how many players decide to take that same route.
