The 2019 class is off to a great start

The 2019 Michigan State football recruiting class has started off with a bang! Spencer Brown, a 6-foot-6-inch, 295 pound offensive tackle from Walled Lake Western, has committed to the Spartans.

Brown is rated as a four-star prospect by both the 247Sports Composite and Rivals. The 247 Composite lists Brown as the No. 35 offensive tackle in the country, and the ninth-best player in Michigan in the 2019 class.

Scout currently lists him as a three-star tackle, which ranks him third at the position in Michigan, and sixth in the Midwest region.

According to his 247Sports profile, Brown gathered offers from nearly 25 schools — remember he has not even entered his junior year of high school yet. Other Big Ten teams, such as Iowa, Minnesota, Maryland, Indiana and Maryland were vying for his services. Additionally, Power Five schools such as Miami (FL.), Louisville, Virginia Tech, Missouri, Iowa State and a plethora of others extended an offer to Brown.

Brown has also played on the defensive line, where he was a disruptive force for his old school, Walled Lake Northern, but he projects to play on the offensive side of the ball for the Spartans.

Michigan State initially offered Brown back in May. According the Detroit Free Press, Brown had this to say about the Spartans’ offer:

“It was a shocking moment in my life. It was one of the best feelings, knowing you've worked hard and it has paid off. It is truly a blessing to receive the news that I have a Michigan State offer.”

It sounds like he is exciting to wear green and white! This is a great get for the Spartans, and now perhaps we’ll see more 2019 recruits commit to the program.
