Michigan State football receives commitment from Michigan LB Semaj Bridgeman

Thanks to the transfer portal, Michigan State football is getting better every day. Jonathan Smith already secured two commitments from the portal on Friday, and somehow he's not done yet.

This time he's stealing a young transfer from arch-rival Michigan, and that could be a huge boost for the program's future.

Semaj Bridgeman is a future linebacker transfer from this school. He was a four-star high school recruit in the class of 2023. He only spent one season in Ann Arbor and didn't see any playing time, but that doesn't mean he's a bad player.

We all know how strong Michigan's defense was last season, so not getting on the field really isn't a bad sign for a freshman considering how talented this group was. But imagine how helpful it was for him to go up against that unit in practice. Michigan was the best team in college football last year and Bridgeman was able to compete with them every day in practice. Even though he never saw the field during games, the amount of training he received with a team like Michigan is huge for his development.

Bridgeman now brings his talents and four years of eligibility to East Lansing, where Michigan State can definitely use him. The Spartans already have a solid linebacker room, so I don't expect Bridgeman to play all that much this season, but I think he will still see a lot of snaps each game. Bridgeman will also play an important role in defense in the coming years. So expect to hear his name heard a lot in the coming years as he stays in East Lansing.

Michigan State is improving day by day and with each passing day my excitement for the upcoming season increases.
