#V4MSU: Shakur Brown goes green for 2017

Versatile, speedy Georgia product picks MSU

NCAA Football: Indiana at Michigan State Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

If you thought this 2017 recruiting class was done being built, oh boy, you were wrong.

MSU plucked another peach out of Georgia with 3-star athlete Shakur Brown making his commitment via Twitter late Saturday night.

Brown — ranked 74th at “athlete” on 247Sports -- was previously committed to West Virginia but left his options open. Now that the 6-foot, 180 pound commit is a Spartan, the green and white will be enjoying the talents of a versatile player who boasts a 4.40 40-yard time.

Brown won’t be the only Georgian to be coming to East Lansing as athlete Connor Heyward and cornerback Tre Parsons also join the 2017 class.

This news also softens the blow of the weekend news of Kenney Lyke and Kaleel Gaines announcing their transfers away from the program.

Also, we’ve got 90 days until opening day. Rejoice, people. Rejoice.
