The construction of the 2023 class has officially broken ground with an in-state prospect committing to the Michigan State Spartans on Tuesday.
Three-star tight end Brennan Parachek out of Dexter High School pledged his commitment to Mel Tucker and the Spartans on Twitter, becoming the first recruit to verbally commit to the 2023 class. The announcement comes after he visited East Lansing earlier this summer. MSU originally offered Parachek back in February.

Parachek also held offers from Kentucky, Pittsburgh, Kansas, Purdue, Arizona State and a host of other Group of Five schools. The 6-foot-6 high school junior checks in as the No. 324-ranked recruit nationally and the No. 7 rated Michigan prospect, per the 247Sports Composite. Amongst tight ends, he ranks No. 21 nationally.
This is the fourth tight end in Mel Tucker’s three recruiting classes, joining 2021 commits Kameron Allen and the pair of 2022 commits in Mike Masunas and Jack Nickel.
The 2023 class in the state of Michigan is primed to have plenty of talent, and starting off with a lengthy tight end with plenty of upside is a fantastic start.
