Michigan State football’s latest impact commitment comes with an international flavor — and Mel Tucker beating out two premier programs and his former boss.

Bai Jobe announced his commitment to Tucker’s program Thursday afternoon. The four-star defensive end from Senegal will arrive with the Spartans’ 2023 talented recruiting class via Community Christian School in Norman, Oklahoma.

The nation’s No. 64 player overall and the ninth-best edge rusher, according to 247Sports.com’s composite rankings, the 6-foot-4, 215-pound Jobe picked the Spartans over his other finalists, Alabama and Oklahoma. Jobe becomes MSU’s top-rated recruit in the 2023 class, the 11th overall commitment and the seventh four-star pledge after the recent decommitment of Texas cornerback Jaylon Braxton.
