MSU 2019 Recruits & Outlook

By MI Grappler, 05/30/19, 11:00AM EDT


The Spartans will be welcoming a pretty solid freshman class in the fall.  Leading the way are 4x state champ Jordan Hamdan of Hudson and 2x Ohio state champ Jordan Crace, both of whom ended their senior years nationally ranked.  A pair of 2x MI state champs also inked with Coach Chandler and company, with DCC's Easton Turner and Caro's DJ Daniels signing.  Another notable pickup is Garrett Pepple, a grad transfer from Indiana University who spot-started for the Hoosiers during his four years there.   

With just two seniors in 2020, the next two years will see a fairly similar lineup, with guys jockeying for starting positions and competing for opportunities, which is a great thing from a depth perspective.  All-American Rayvon Foley still has a redshirt year available and that could come into play this year or next year.  In any case expect them to look for a 125 to fill the void there, as well as some middleweights (149/157) to continue to build depth there.  They've already started the 2020 Class off by getting a commitment from California's Chase Saldate, ranked 8th in the country by Flo.
