The early signing period for the 2022 football class is live. This is a strong class for Michigan State head coach Mel Tucker, and an important one for Tucker and his staff to build out the future of the program.

The class includes several four-star recruits, four of the top-nine in-state prospects from Michigan and a variety of intriguing prospects from around the country. According to 247Sports, the Spartans currently rank 21st nationally and fourth in the Big Ten. Rivals is even higher on MSU’s 2022 class, ranking it 17th as of press time (rankings will certainly fluctuate throughout the day).

Keep up to date with all of Michigan State’s 2022 prospects who sign early on Wednesday by following along with this tracker post. This post will be updated throughout the day as prospects sign with MSU.

Note: star ratings and player rankings are based on the 247Sports Composite rankings metrics. Heights and weights are also based on 247Sports’ listed measurements.

Update: As of 6 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday, Dec. 15., Michigan State has had 22 high school recruits and four transfer players sign National Letters of Intent. Each name is listed below.

Expected early enrollees:

It appears that Florida transfer defensive end Khris Bogle will also enroll early, according to msuspartans.com. MSU also lists 2022 three-star defensive end Chase “Simba” Carter as an early enrollee, even though he is not mentioned in the tweet above

Honorary Signee: Tate Myre, Oxford High School

Myre tragically lost his life in an effort to protect fellow students during the Oxford High School shooting on Nov. 30. He grew up a Michigan State fan, and Tucker and the Spartans have made Myre an honorary member of MSU’s 2022 signing class. Myre played linebacker/running back/tight end for the Oxford football team, and was one of four students killed in the shooting.
