Michigan State football lands transfer RB Jalen Berger from Wisconsin

Mel Tucker hit gold with Kenneth Walker III. Michigan State football’s coach is hoping to do the same with Jalen Berger.

The Spartans landed a pledge from the Wisconsin transfer running back for next season. The 6-foot, 205-pound Berger made his announcement Monday afternoon on Twitter.

Berger had 88 yards on 24 carries with a touchdown and two catches for 17 yards for the Badgers in four games this season. Playing in four games as a true freshman in 2020, Berger ran 60 times for 301 yards with two TDs to land on the preseason Doak Walker Award watch list going into this fall.
