Kurtis Drummond has been a starter at safety in the Spartan “No Fly Zone” for the past two seasons. To date, Kurtis has racked up 156 tackles and 8 interceptions.
In 2013, the safety was a first team All-Big Ten selection as well as an All-American honorable mention. Drummond will be returning to the Spartans for his senior season in 2014.

Michigan State cornerback Kurtis Drummond wasted no time in submitting his candidate for this season’s defensive play of the year in college football. Drummond, a junior for the Spartans, made this brilliant one-handed pick in the first quarter of MSU’s opener against Western Michigan.
Oh, and Drummond had already scored a defensive touchdown for Michigan State after receiving...
It hasn’t been the greatest start the season for Michigan State’s offense, but their defense is proving it early that they are one of the best in the nation. Even when it looks like they are out of position, they can make a play. Kurtis Drummond already had a pick-6 earlier in the game when he made one of the most impressive interceptions we will probably see all year. Check...
