    Three-star defensive end DeAri Todd flipped his commitment from Boston College to Michigan State on Sunday, giving the Spartans 19 total commits in the 2017 recruiting class. 


    We’re now about a week away from National Signing Day, and Mark Dantonio’s staff is rounding out the Spartans’ class.

    Their latest addition came on Sunday when 3-star prospect DeAri Todd flipped his commitment from Boston College to Michigan State. The Spartans now have 19 total commits and are at No. 19 in the 2017 recruiting class rankings.

    Todd, a native of Lorain, Ohio, is ranked as the No. 86 defensive end in the country and the No. 3 defensive end in the state of Ohio. He released a statement regarding his decision to flip from the Eagles to the Spartans.

    “I would like to thank God for blessing me with the opportunity to play the game of football and giving me chances to go to places that I’ve never thought I’d go explore. Thank you to my parents for raising me into the young man I am today and for always being there for me through everything. Thank you to the coaches and people of Clearview who have supported me through this stressful but enjoyable process. Lastly, I would like tot hank all the coaches who have believed in me and given me a chance to come to their school. But after long discussions with family and friends, I have decided to decommit from Boston College. I would like to thank Boston College and their coaches for giving me the chance to come to their prestigious college. But with that being said, I have decided to further my academic and football career at Michigan State University.”

    At 6-foot-4, 220 lbs Todd brings athleticism to the edge and will fire off the ball consistently. He needs refinement as a pass rusher, but there is a lot of potential for his future in East Lansing.
