Michigan State landed its third 2017 football recruit Thursday in four-star offensive lineman Kevin Jarvis, a junior from Maine South High (Parkridge, Ill.).
The 6-foot-5, 315-pounder from suburban Chicago announced via Twitter that he picked the Spartans. Recruiting website 247 Sports reported that Jarvis chose MSU over offers from Michigan, Nebraska, Auburn, Arkansas, Florida and Tennessee. He posted pictures Tuesday on his Twitter account of himself with Jack Allen and Mark Dantonio at the Spartans’ outdoor practice facility.
“I’ve always wanted to be a Spartan and it feels great to finally be part of the family,” Jarvis told 247 Sports.
Jarvis is rated the No. 5 recruit in Illinois and No. 10 offensive guard nationally by 247 Sports. Rivals.com lists him as No. 9 at his position and 232nd overall among 2017 recruits. Scout.com ranks Jarvis as the 13th-best at offensive guard in the country. All three sites gave him four stars.
Jarvis joins wide receiver Cody White from Walled Lake Western and tight end Jack Camper from IMG Academy in Florida to commit for MSU’s 2017 class.
