Recruiting has been a hot topic in recent months, with a variety of high profile recruits making their first-round visits to the university in recent years.
The Crimson Tide currently has six top-tier prospects, who have all been committed to the school.
Here are some of the top recruits that have been recruited by MSU and which recruits would be good fits at the school in the coming years.
Bryant was a consensus All-American at the University of Oregon and one of the best wide receivers in college football.
He was ranked as high as No. 17 by Scout.com and Scout.coach.com.
Bryants senior year, when he led the Ducks to a 31-6 record, helped him land a commitment from ESPN analyst Pat Forde, who had previously recruited Bryant.
Forde has also recruited Bryant to MSU.
In his new book, “Bryans Journey to MSUs Top Player,” Forde writes that the pair has become friends and he can’t wait to see what happens with Bryant.
“We’re going to make him a legend,” Fordes said in an interview with ESPN.com on Tuesday.
“I’m so excited.
We’re going places. “
Bryan and I will be buddies forever.
We’re going places.
He’s going to be the best player I’ve ever played with.”
Forde said he also expects Bryant to land another top-five target from the Big Ten, where the Ducks are ranked No. 6 and Michigan State is ranked No 1.
“He’s a big, big star in the Big 12,” Fordedes said.
“That’s a very, very, big thing for me.”
The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Bryant has been ranked as the No. 2 overall prospect in the 2016 class by 247Sports and No. 8 overall prospect by Scout and Scout Coaches.
He had the No!
1 ranking in the 247Sports Composite rankings in April of 2017 and the No-2 ranking in Scout.net rankings in July of 2017.
Bryant, who is from the Philadelphia area, is also considered a top-50 player by Rivals.com, according to 247Sports.
There are other players that are also considered to be potential top-100 prospects by 247sports.com such as Alabama cornerback Jabrill Peppers, Notre Dame defensive tackle Kaelin Clay, Ohio State linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin and Clemson defensive tackle D.J. Swearinger.
Another player that is considered to have the potential to become a top prospect in his own right is Clemson defensive end Kaelen Clay, according, Rivals.
Clay is also rated as a top 50 prospect by 247 Sports.
One of the main things that made the recruitment of Bryant possible is his size, according Forde.
He is listed at 6-3 and weighs around 250 pounds.
According to Forde’s book, Bryant also has the ability to be a disruptive player, a trait that will help him on the field.
He has great size for a player of his size and he has a natural ability to make plays when he is on the move.
“Bryan can be a big-time playmaker, and he is able to do that with his size,” Ford said.
With all of the hype surrounding Bryant and his potential, Forde also has a few things to say about the recruitment process.
While Bryant is the top-rated player in his class, Ford said he expects the other players to make the jump to the next level.
I’m hoping for a guy like Alabama defensive tackle Jalen Rucker, who was a five-star prospect by ESPN.
He would be a great fit for the program and I believe the coaching staff at MSU would have the confidence in him.
Rucker is the second-highest-ranked defensive end in the 2017 class and is a two-time SEC All-Conference selection.
After getting his big break with the Ducks in the 2015 season, Rucker had his first season at MSUs program as a redshirt sophomore.
Following his freshman year, Ruck signed with the Detroit Lions, where he started 12 games and played in all 12 games.
Ruck’s career has been littered with injuries, but his success in 2017 earned him a contract with the Lions.
For now, he is still in his first year at MSAs program, but he is considered a big player for the Lions, who ranked as No!
11 in the ESPN.COM composite rankings.
Despite missing most of the 2017 season due to injury, Rookys career was still productive as he recorded nine sacks in his debut season with the Tigers.
What’s more, Ruddy’s play earned him the No!.5 spot on the 2017 Rivals
