Michigan State Football Recruiting: Nick Tompkins Commits

Before last Sunday, Michigan State had five commitments for its 2012 football recruiting class. Amazingly, the Spartans picked up as many commitments in the last week alone, with the latest being Georgia running back Nick Tompkins. He committed to Michigan State on Sunday to become the fifth new recruit of the week and the 10th recruit overall to join the Spartans' 2012 class.

Tompkins is considered an all-purpose running back by Rivals, which gives him three stars. Scout and ESPN also have Tompkins listed as a three-star recruit. 24/7 Sports has not yet evaluated him.

According to Rivals, Tompkins has a lengthy offer list. It includes MSU, Army, Boston College, California, Cincinnati, Duke, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Mississippi State, Purdue, Vanderbilt, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin, among others.
