One expected early enrollee from 2021 class reportedly not among Michigan State's midyear additions
Now that the 2020 season is in the books, all the attention around the B1G is focusing on recruiting and preparing for the 2021 season.
As the 2021 recruiting class begins to enroll as early-enrollees at their respective schools, the midyear additions are getting into place.
At Michigan State, coach Mel Tucker has four early enrollees already in place. Per a team spokesman, QB Hamp Fay, OL Ethan Boyd, S Michael Gravely Jr., and TE Kameron Allen. Safety AJ Kirk, who Mel Tucker previously said will enroll early, is not among the midyear additions.

Kirk was the fourth highest-rated prospect on Michigan State’s 2021 recruiting class to this point. While Kirk’s absence is not optimal, fans should not be panicked. According to 247 Sports, Kirk has signed his letter of intent and should still be with the Spartans for 2021, barring any further development.
