Right when you thought it couldn’t get any better for the Michigan State Spartans, the program received yet another commitment from a top position player. This time, the Spartans got their first 2016 commitment from Pennsylvania wide receiver Cameron Chambers, rated a four-star and the seventh-best wide out in the nation for 2016 by Rivals.

What does this mean for Michigan State? Well, it’s starting to look like the program keeps trending upward and this commitment does nothing but help the future class of 2016.
As the first commitment in the class, the top-100 commit essentially paves the way for other top recruits to follow suit. In fact, the Spartans have been in the mix for five-star dual-threat QB Malik Henry who is rated as the No. 1 quarterback in the entire class by multiple recruiting databases. This commitment by a top wide out could lure the talented QB and give him one more reason to join the green and white.
This makes the Spartans an elite recruiting program. As a school that used to struggled to snag three-stars before Mark Dantonio took over, getting three and four-stars regularly turns the tides in the Spartans’ favor for the future.
As an Ohio State Buckeyes or Michigan Wolverines fan, you have to be worried that the Big Ten might be the Spartans’ conference for a while. This has to be especially alarming when Chambers was reportedly leaning toward either Michigan or Ohio State.
This is no longer a two-team conference, Michigan State is on top and, if you can believe it, continuing to rise.
Watch out, college football.
