Brennan Parachek, one of the top juniors in Michigan, has committed to Michigan State.

Parachek of Dexter, Michigan, announced his commitment to the Spartans Tuesday morning in a social media post. In the tweet, he said he was “110% committed” to Michigan State.

Brennan Parachek, who is 6-foot-6 and 235 pounds, is a consensus three-star prospect. He was also offered by Akron, Arizona State, Central Michigan, Kansas, Pitt, Purdue, Kentucky, Miami of Ohio and Syracuse. He was on campus at Michigan earlier this fall, but the Wolverines had yet to extend an offer to Parachek.

Brennan Parachek loved MSU coaches

Brennan Parachek has been to East Lansing several times, including a visit earlier this summer where he raved about his time on campus.

“My favorite part was definitely meeting all the coaches. I loved them all,” Parachek told 247Sports. “They were all great people, really knowledgeable when it comes to football. I just had a great day talking to them. They’re really family-oriented there, and that’s what I love. I couldn’t see myself anywhere else besides a place that is kind of like that, with a big family background. I just loved talking to them and had a great time in East Lansing.”

Michigan State was the second team to offer Parachek. Being in on him early paid off, he said.

At Dexter, Parachek said he has played as an in-line tight end or a big wide receiver depending on the matchup. This season Parachek said he’s played a traditional tight end role more. Dexter is 4-1 on the season. This Friday night Dexter faces 4-1 Huron.
