Brandon Randle (Battle Creek Central) assembled a little collage that featured two photos of him in high school and in elementary school. A Michigan State hat and shirt were also added into the composition, ready for Randle to tweet out his verbal commitment on Saturday.
Randle, a three-star outside linebacker, became the 18th pledge of the already loaded 2016 recruiting class, relieved that the process is finally over.
"Talked to Coach D about it and told him I was ready to made an announcement. He was excited for me and said congratulations," Randle told the Battle Creek Enquirer. "It's a pretty big relief. I'm happy it's over to be honest."
Randle is the No. 3 ranked linebacker in the state of Michigan by Scout.com and No. 33 overall in the nation, receiving offers from North Carolina State, Indiana, Iowa and Minnesota, among others.
The Spartans now have the No. 4 recruiting class by Scout and No. 6 by 247Sports. They're one of four teams ranked in the top 10 who don't have a five-star commit.
