On Saturday night, Michael Geiger, Rivals.com top-ranked kicker in the Class of 2013, Tweeted that he had committed to Mike Dantonio and Michigan State.

Geiger had originally committed to Boston College back in June, but reopened his commitment after Spaziani got fired. The 5-foot-9 kicker commits to Michigan State three days after Steve Addazio was hired as the next head coach. The Toledo, Ohio native is ranked as Scout.com's no. 9 kicker in the nation and no. 12 according to ESPN.

With Freese going into his senior year, sophomore Alex Howell appears to be the only succession plan at place kicker for BC. The only other kickers currently on the roster are Amherst, Ohio sophomore Jake Wilhelm and Seattle, Washington sophomore Joey Launceford.

Addazio and the Eagles are down to 16 commitments for the Class of 2013.
