Michigan State is two-for-two on landing commits out of Ohio on Sunday.
First, the Spartans secured a verbal commitment from three-star cornerback Angelo Grose, a native of Mansfield. Later in the day, MSU received a pledge from three-star weak-side defensive end Chris Mayfield out of Hilliard.
Mayfield made his announcement on Twitter. His decision comes just two days after taking an official visit to East Lansing. He picked Michigan State over 13 other schools that offered.
“I would like to thank all of my family and coaches along the way for make me successful and the man I am today but I will be committing to Michigan State University,” Mayfield wrote on Twitter.

Mayfield held four B1G offers, but Michigan State stood out among the rest. He picked the Spartans over offers from Purdue, Minnesota and Maryland. Several other schools showed interest, including Cincinnati, Boston College, Iowa State, Kentucky and Louisville.
At 6-foot-2, 250 pounds, Mayfield ranks as the No. 52 player from the state of Ohio and the No. 64 defensive end in the 2020 class.
The Spartans have now reached double digits with the 2020 class, as Mayfield becomes the 10th player to verbally commit. Michigan State’s class currently ranks ninth in the B1G and 44th overall.
