When Skyler Burkland retired from football over the summer due to injuries, many figured MSU would go the JUCO route to find another offensive linemen who could play right away, with Fou Fonoti set to graduate. MSU has done that by securing the commitment of David Hedelin, who is actually from Sweden. Hondo Carpenter first reported it.

We're in a recruiting dead period, but the JUCO signing day was this week. Based on Hedelin's comments, it doesn't appear he is a mid-year enrollee. (Incoming tight end Matt Sokol expects to be an early enrolee).

Hedelin visited for the Indiana game and spoke with Scout afterward.

"I expected the people to be more arrogant, I think, but they weren't," he said after the visit. "The people were the biggest positive thing about my visit. They were very friendly, the coaches and players, everyone was very, very welcoming."

Hedelin is the fourth offensive lineman in the class and is a candidate for early playing time. I imagine Donavon Clark and perhaps Dennis Finley to also compete for time at right tackle.

Hedelin is commit No. 18 for the class of 2014, which is shaping up to be a very good one after these past two commitments.

I couldn't find any JUCO highlights, but there are some of him playing what I assume is high school ball in Europe from 2011. It also features music from the Transformers movie.
