As camp finished today in East Lansing, the Spartans got some good news. Mustafa Khaleefah, a 3-star offensive tackle from Dearborn High School (Dearborn, Mi.), has committed to Mark Dantonio and Michigan State.

A 6-foot-6, 282-pound tackle, Khaleefah was offered by Michigan State on Wednesday and didn’t wait long to make his college decision.
“I’ve been up to MSU a lot,” Khaleefah told Landof10. “I love it up there and it really feels like home. After I got the offer it was just a matter of time.”
The country’s 96th-ranked offensive tackle, Khaleefah chose the Spartans over offers from Syracuse, Cincinnati, Miami (Ohio), Bowling Green and others. He’s the Spartans’ 12th commitment in the 2017 class and the fourth player committed from Michigan. He joins 4-star guard Kevin Jarvis (Park Ridge, Ill.) and 3-star guard Matt Carrick (Massillon, Ohio) as future offensive linemen for line coach Mark Staten.
The Spartans, who have the Big Ten’s seventh-ranked recruiting class in 2017, are on a bit of a roll right now. Including Khaleefah, the Green and White have added four commitments since June 1. Michigan State picked up Illinois defensive tackle Jacob Panasiuk and a pair of Florida defensive ends, Donovan Winter and Lashawn Paulino-Bell, in the last three weeks.
Khaleefah’s commitment was first reported by 247Sports.com analyst Steve Wiltfong.
