Michigan State Football is having a hard time right now. Their head coach gets pushed out very late in the process and the pool of candidates was very shallow. They had to way over pay for a guy that turned them down already. Then COVID happened and Spring Practice was cancelled.
That is some serious bad things back to back to back. When you have all that change, its very difficult to recruit anyone to come to your school. MSU right now is listed to have the 64th recruiting class (24/7) in-between Miami of Ohio and Buffalo. OSU has the #1 class and Michigan #8.
