The Michigan State Spartans have secured a second verbal commitment in the 2022 class. Gavin Broscious, an offensive guard out of Desert Edge High School in Goodyear, Arizona, announced his pledge to the Spartans on Saturday afternoon.
Broscious is rated as a three-star prospect by both 247Sports and Rivals.com. He also continues the trend for Michigan State head coach Mel Tucker and his staff of targeting recruits with great size — Rivals lists Broscious at 6-feet-5-inches tall, 300 pounds...as a high school junior.
The 247Sports Composite rankings list Broscious as the No. 24 offensive guard in the nation for the 2022 class, as well as the No. 10 player in the state of Arizona and the No. 679 prospect overall.
In addition to Michigan State, Broscious received offers from Arizona, Arizona State, California, Colorado, Utah, Vanderbilt, Kansas, Minnesota, Nebraska and others. The Spartans initially offered him in March.
Michigan State offensive line coach Chris Kapilovic handled the primary recruiting duties with Broscious. The young lineman immediately felt a connection with Kapilovic, according to 247Sports:
“Coach Kap (Chris Kapilovic) has been recruiting me for a long time,” Broscious told Spartan Tailgate earlier this month. “I really like him and the staff. I believe they’re building something big. Coach Kap is a great guy. He’s coached a lot of players that are similar to me. Jonathan Cooper being one of them. He shows me a lot of love and he really wants me to be a Spartan.”
This now makes it two offensive line commits here in the early stages of MSU’s 2022 recruiting class. The Spartans landed a verbal commitment from Georgia offensive lineman Kristian Phillips in early November.
