An impressive offseason in the transfer portal for Mel Tucker and Co. just got another notch in its belt on Tuesday morning.

Minnesota transfer, and former four-star recruit out of the 2020 class, Itayvion “Tank” Brown announced his commitment to the Michigan State Spartans, giving the Spartans new commits in back-to-back days.

In high school, the 6-foot-4 prospect also put in some serious time in at wide receiver and shows athleticism all over the field. He had a nice offer sheet you could expect from a four-star kid that included offers from the likes of Florida State, Texas A&M, LSU and others.

Brown didn’t get into any game action last year as he redshirted, but that didn’t stop him from hearing from a slew of suitors. In the end, it will be Brown coming to a linebackers room in East Lansing that needs the help after Antjuan Simmons heads to the NFL Draft.

This is the fourth linebacker/edge guy Tucker has landed this transfer season, joining Duke transfer Drew Jordan, Michigan’s Ben VanSumeran and preferred walk-on linebacker Samih Beydoun.
