The Detroit News

Michigan State added another four-star to its 2023 recruiting class Thursday, with edge rusher Bai Jobe announcing his plans to play for the Spartans.

Jobe, a 6-foot-4, 215-pound prospect from Norman (Oklahoma) Community Christian School, picked Michigan State over finalists Alabama and Oklahoma.

He becomes the highest-rated recruit in the class, according to the 247Sports Composite, which ranks him No. 64 overall in the country, No. 9 at his position, and No. 1 overall in Oklahoma.

He joins fellow four-star Andrew Depaepe as defensive linemen in the 11-member class, which most recently lost the commitment of four-star cornerback Jaylon Braxton. Seven of those players are rated as four-star recruits, according to 247Sports.

The top three players in the class — Jobe, Depaepe, and linebacker Jordan Hall — are defensive recruits.
