The Spartans recruiting class has 11 commitments, and seven of them were ranked among the top 150 in the midwest by Scout.com.

Ten of the commits qualified for the ranking, as defensive tackle Devin Salmon is from Tampa, Fla.Linebacker Jon Reschke is rated the No. 35 player in the midwest according to Scout.com. (Scout.com Photo)

Birmingham Brother Rice linebacker Jon Reschke was the top-ranked player at No. 35.

The other six were:

64. Jalyn Powell, S, Warren, Ohio

68. R.J. Shelton, RB, Beaver Dam, Wis.

85. Shane Jones, OLB, Cincinnati

93. Gerald Holmes, RB, Flint Carman-Ainsworth

98. Trey Kilgore, WR, Cincinnati

138. Darian Hicks, CB, Solon, Ohio

Michigan State has offers out to many remaining uncommited players in the top 150, and is rumored to be among the leaders for defensive end Josh Augusta (58), offensive tackle Dennis Finley (59), safety Jalen Banks (60), defensive end Demetrius Cooper (71) and defensive end Ruben Dunbar (108).

Augusta, Finley, Cooper and Dunbar all have been reported to have MSU as their leader recently. The Spartans would not accept commitments from all those players, as the class has room for three or four more players. Expect the class to fill out with an offensive lineman, a defensive lineman, a safety and one more player (likely a second offensive lineman).

They also have offers out to wide receiver Laquon Treadwell (7), defensive tackle Donovan Munger (37), offensive tackle Kyle Meadows (89) and safety Marcus Ball (97).
