The Michigan State Spartans have landed the ninth commit in the 2019 recruiting class with three-star offensive guard Nick Samac of Mentor High School in Ohio.

Samac is the second offensive linemen, and first guard of the 2019 class. Offensive tackle Spencer Brown was the first commit in the class. Samac brings the Ohio player count to three — or one-third of the entire class so far — as Mark Dantonio and the Spartans continue to have a strong presence in the Buckeye state.

The current Mentor Cardinal ranks No. 35 nationally at the guard position, per 247Sports, and is currently No. 45 in the state of Ohio regardless of position.

He had several other offers from schools including Minnesota, Indiana, Duke, Temple, Boston College, Vanderbilt and several Mid-American Conference schools, amongst others.

The Spartans officially offered Samac on April 19 and he took an unofficial visit earlier in May.

As of press time, Michigan State’s 2019 class ranks No. 21 in the country and No. 4 in the Big Ten. With a lot of time left to add players, this group is already looking like a strong one for the Spartans.
