The Michigan State football program received a commitment from a familiar name Friday night.
Grand Rapids Forest Hills Central wide receiver/linebacker Tate Hallock revealed on Twitter that he will play football at Michigan State. Hallock's father, Ty Hallock, played at Michigan State from 1989-1992, where he spent time at fullback, tight end and linebacker before he spent seven seasons in the NFL, including two with the Detroit Lions (1993-94).
Tate Hallock's brother, Tanner, is a linebacker for the Spartans.
"It's been a dream of mine to play with my brother and in the big ten," Tate Hallock tweeted. "Especially at the school where I've grown up watching my whole life."
The 6-foot-3, 185-pound Hallock is considered a three-star prospect in the 247Sports Composite. He's ranked No. 44 overall in the state, and No. 159 among "athletes" in the country, according to the composite.
Hallock is the 11th verbal commitment in Michigan State's 2019 class, and sixth from the state of Michigan.
