Austin Andrews returns a punt during a 2014 game for Columbus St. Francis De Sales.

Michigan State landed two more commitments to its 2016 class on Tuesday as three-star cornerback Austin Andrews from Columbus (Ohio) St. Francis De Sales announced on Twitter he would become a Spartan, followed by another Twitter commitment from three-star Jonah Morris, a receiver and defensive back from Akron (Ohio) Archbishop Hoban.

Andrews (6-0, 180) had also been offered by Wisconsin, Missouri, Louisville and Purdue, among others. He is ranked the No. 31 safety in the nation by Scout.com in the 2016 class.

"Words can't explain the way I feel. I have now Verbally Committed to The Michigan State Spartans," Andrews wrote on Twitter.

Andrews visited Michigan State in April. After that visit, he placed the Spartans No. 1 on his list.

"It was really, really strong love and honesty right off the bat," he told Allen Trieu of Scout.com, also a Detroit News contributor. "They're great coaches."

Morris, who is being recruited as an athlete, is the No. 27-ranked player in the state of Ohio and No. 49 athlete in the nation, according to the 247sports composite rankings. Rivals ranks him 29th in the state of Ohio.

He picked Michigan State ahead of Kentucky, Pittsburgh, Illinois, Maryland and Minnesota.

"After a long time thinking and talking with my parents,I am Officially committed to Michigan State university#GoGreen," Morris posted on Twitter.

Michigan State's class now stands at nine players.
