Going into National Signing Day, Michigan State had the potential to add as many as four new commits to its 2012 recruiting class. As it stands right now, it looks like the Spartans will finish the day where they started -- with 18 commitments.
On Wednesday, Michigan State finished behind Rutgers for defensive end Julian Pinnix-Odrick, Pittsburgh for defensive tackle Terrell Jackson and Ohio State for offensive tackle Kyle Dodson. The Spartans also finished behind Arkansas for defensive end JaMichael Winston, who decided to stick with his commitment and sign with the Razorbacks.

Winston took a visit to Michigan State this past weekend, giving Spartans fans hope that he would decommit from Arkansas. In the end, he decided to sign with the Razorbacks over heading north to play for Michigan State.
