Michigan State picked up a huge win on the recruiting trail Friday afternoon, keeping home one of the top prospects in the state for 2022.

The decision came from Alex VanSumeren, a four-star defensive lineman who was previously committed to Michigan. He reopened his commitment earlier in the year and released a new top-10 in April.

On Friday, VanSumeren made it official, picking the Spartans over offers from Alabama, Clemson, Texas A&M, Oregon, Nebraska, Indiana, and Penn State, among others:

VanSumeren is rated as the fourth-overall prospect out of Michigan for the class of 2022 by the industry-generated composite rankings. He is also the No. 180 player nationally for the cycle.

VanSumeren will join his older brother – Ben – in East Lansing after he transferred to Michigan State from Michigan this offseason. The elder VanSumeren is a linebacker who recorded eight tackles in four games with the Wolverines last season.

This week has been particularly good for Michigan State’s recruiting class. VanSumeren joins four-star wide receiver Antonio Gates Jr. as top-300 prospects to commit to the Spartans this week. That has Mel Tucker’s 2022 class up to 22nd nationally.
