Michigan State football has landed a former recruit, this time through the transfer portal.
Wide receiver Alante Brown was recruited by Michigan State and even verbally committed to play for the school before decommitting and eventually heading to Nebraska, where he has been the last three seasons.
Brown is a three-star transfer prospect, according to 247 Sports.
Brown played in all 12 games last year for the Cornhuskers and had 191 yards receiving on 16 catches. He played only sparingly in his first two years in Lincoln, appearing in 11 games over two seasons.

Nebraska fired head coach Scott Frost after just three games in 2022 and brought in former Carolina Panthers and Baylor head coach Matt Rhule during the offseason.
Brown grew up in Chicago and went to Simeon Career Academy in Chicago. He will enter a wide receiver room where there is suddenly a gaping hole and a lot of reps to go around after star Keon Coleman left MSU after two seasons and transferred to Florida State. Coleman had a breakout sophomore season with 798 yards receiving and seven touchdown catches, but the Randy Moss-esque catches and athleticism was better than the statistics showed. Combine that with the departure of Jayden Reed to the NFL, and the Spartans have big shoes to fill at wideout.
Michigan State finished 2022 with a 5-7 record and missed a bowl game a year after going 11-2 and beating Pitt in the 2021 Peach Bowl.
