#V4MSU: Mr. Football LaDarius Jefferson picks MSU

NCAA Football: Michigan State at Maryland Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

With signing day creeping closer, the Spartans 2018 class is only getting stronger.

Muskegon’s LaDarius Jefferson -- who played quarterback and won Michigan’s Mr. Football en route to a state title — announced his commitment to MSU on Saturday. While he played quarterback in high school, he’s shown he can play running back and linebacker too.

Really, MSU is getting a stud football player that everyone should be excited about.

Jefferson -- who was originally committed to Central Florida until November — is ranked as a 3-star on 247Sports, also coming in as the No. 451-ranked recruit in the country. His commitment is good to push the Spartans to No. 21 nationally in the 2018 class rankings.

The Spartans don’t have many scholarships available now that the class stands at 20 players. However, 4-star receiver Tommy Bush and 4-star linebacker Chris Oates are still getting looked at hard and would be phenomenal additions to end this class.
