Michigan State’s top recruit from 2021 leaves program

According to a report from the Lansing State Journal, Michigan State’s top recruit from 2021 is leaving the program.

Rainer Sabin is reporting that linebacker Ma’a Gaoteote, the No. 1 ranked recruit in the Spartans’ 2021 recruiting class, is entering the NCAA Transfer Portal.

From LSJ:

MSU coach Mel Tucker made a major splash in December 2020 when he persuaded Gaoteote to drop his commitment with USC and sign with the Spartans.

Gaoteote, who was expected to contribute immediately as a freshman, did not play much for the Spartans in 2021 (100 total snaps)
