Michigan State coach Mel Tucker landed another commitment on Thursday, this one from a former Notre Dame commit that took an official visit to East Lansing last month.

Jack Nickel, Alpharetta (Georgia) Milton, TE, 6-4, 230 pounds, three stars.

Jack Nickel, a three-start tight end from Alpharetta (Georgia) Milton announced on Twitter he had committed to the Spartans, becoming the 14th member of the 2022 recruiting class. The 6-foot-5, 240-pounder became a top target for Tucker and his staff after decommitting from Notre Dame, and had offers from the likes of LSU, Oregon, Penn State, Wisconsin, Florida State and Miami among many others.

Ranked the No. 23 tight end in the country by 247sports.com, Nickel is the second tight end to commit to Michigan State’s 2022 class, joining three-star Michael Masunas from Chandler, Arizona.

Michigan State is set to begin preseason camp on Aug. 5 in preparation for the season-opener Sept. 4 at Northwestern.
