Craig Evans, a four-star defensive tackle out of Sun Prairie High School in Wisconsin, committed to Michigan State on Monday night.
Evans held scholarship offers from quite a few Big Ten and SEC programs, including Arkansas, Tennessee, Wisconsin and MSU. He originally committed to the hometown Badgers on Jan. 3, but had a change of heart as he re-opened his recruitment.
Evans is listed by 24/7Sports' composite rankings as the 220th best prospect in the 2014 class. An imposing force at 6'3 and 305 pounds, he is also ranked as the No. 20 defensive tackle this year, as well as the second-best player overall from Wisconsin.
The big fella took to Twitter to announce his decision on Monday:

Michigan State's 2014 recruiting class came into the day ranked 35th nationally, though there are a handful of uncommitted high-profile players considering the Spartans as National Signing Day nears.
