Michigan State coach Mel Tucker continued to work the transfer portal on Saturday, securing the commitment of offensive lineman Jarrett Horst of Arkansas State.

At 6-foot-6 and 304 pounds, Horst was third-team All-Sun Belt Conference in 2019 and entered 2020 on the Outland Trophy watch list while earning all-conference honors from Phil Steele and second team from Athlon Sports.

Horst, a native of Middleton, Wis., made his commitment in a Twitter post on Saturday night, becoming the third player this week to announce he is transferring to Michigan State. He joins graduate transfer quarterback Anthony Russo of Temple and third-year sophomore running back Harold Joiner III from Auburn.

High-profile programs like Texas, Oklahoma and Baylor had shown interest in Horst since he entered the transfer portal earlier this week.
