When Tyler O'Connor picked Michigan State earlier this month, becoming the fifth recruit for 2012 to do so, Rivals still had not yet handed out stars to any of the Spartans' commits. All were unrated on Rivals, but that is no longer the case.
Rivals evaluated many prospects this week and gave out stars, and each of MSU's five commits received three stars. On Scout, that is also the case. On 24/7 Sports, however, O'Connor has four stars. The rest of the commits have three stars, which is sort of how things are on ESPN. The only difference is Ben McGowan is the commit with four stars and the rest (except for Evan Jones, who hasn't been evaluated) have three stars.
Here is a full look at MSU's current commits:
