The football program at Michigan State University has landed their fourth commitment to the 2021 recruiting class – 3* DT Derrick Harmon. Harmon, listed at 6’3, 320, is originally from Detroit (MI) Loyola. He is the 33rd-ranked player in Michigan and the 55th-ranked defensive tackle nationally. Harmon chose the Spartans over Ole Miss, Purdue, and Memphis.

“Spartan” Recruiting Class

As of April 8th, Michigan State didn’t have any players committed to the class of 2021. This had Spartan fans worried. That changed with the commitment of 3* RB Davion Primm. Since Primm’s commitment, three additional players have given their verbal to the program (including Derrick Harmon today). Derrick brings a skill set to East Lansing that the Spartan defense has been lacking – a big defensive presence that has the talent and ability to get to the quarterback.

Why Michigan State?

When asked why he chose the Spartans, he talked about relationships: “The new coaching staff was a big factor for me. I feel like Coach Tucker is about to do something really special, and I wanted to be a part of that.” This should make the Spartan faithful very happy about the impact that Mel Tucker is having on the Michigan State program. So what keeps this big man going on the days when you don’t want to get after it? His response is simple: “My mom. Man, if it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t be here. I love that woman with all my heart – she is my best friend!”
