With National Signing Day approaching, Michigan State was able to flip two more commitments for their 2017 class.

According to reports, the Spartans flipped three-star defensive end DeAri Todd from Boston College and two-star cornerback Tre Person from Georgia Southern.

“I really hit it off with the staff there right off the bat,” Person said. “I like what they’re doing up there. They just need a couple more pieces. They have some great coaches. I got to meet a lot of the players and they were cool. Their defensive backs coach (Harlon Barnett) and I get along. I was able to talk football with him yesterday. We have a real good relationship. Plus I can get a real good education there.”

Person is listed as the 241st best cornerback recruit in the country and 281st rated prospect out of Georgia.

The Spartans now have 20 verbal recruits ahead February 1st ranking them as the 6th best class in the Big Ten and the 32nd best in the country among the FBS.
