Football Crootin' Roundup Is Keeping It In The Family

Road game, so no visitors this week, although some big names have confirmed they'll be in town next week.

Peko has a leader (247) - JC DT Kyle Peko says he'd like to follow in the footsteps of his cousins, Domata and Tupe, and MSU is his leader. After his season, he's going to take an official visit to MSU, and possibly Nebraska and Utah. The fact his cousins got to the NFL from MSU is a big selling point.

You know what a Peko mention means...

Cooper blown away with love (Scout) - DE commit Demetrius Cooper was in town for the Boise State game, and fans took notice. Cooper said about 100 fans came up to him and told him he made a great decision. He plans to take an official visit in October. Cooper gave a glimpse into Mark Dantonio's beliefs when it comes to visiting other schools if you're committed.

"I've thought about taking other visits," said Cooper. "Coach (Mark) Dantonio told me that once you commit that is where you want to be at. I don't understand why players decommitt, I'm not going to decommitt. I guess some just commit to do something. I feel a school that is willing to allow you to commit is a school that really wants you. I'm just like coach Dantonio, once you commit that is the place you want to be.

Holmes watches and learns (247) - Running back commit Gerald Holmes racked up 128 yards and two touchdowns on just six carries last weekend. He visited for the Boise State game, and Le'Veon Bell's night was a pleasant sight.

"I liked how Le'Veon Bell carried the team that night," Holmes said. "It was crazy seeing that. If he leaves I'll probably have to fill his shoes, but it was good watching him and looking up at him."

Augusta narrows field to three (247) - Four-star Illinois DT Josh Augusta has MSU, Illinois and Missouri as his final three but says he won't make a decision until he makes an official visit to all of them. He has visited MSU once before, and says he talks to Dan Roushar on Facebook, which I found interesting.

Sean Scherer at 247 had some pretty interesting news for Notre Dame, as five-star Georgia DT and No. 2 overall player Montravious Adams will visit for the night game. Adams visited for the Spring Game, as former high school teammate Keith Mumphrey convinced him to. Don't expect MSU to land him, but getting such a highly-rated recruit to make the trip up twice really is a sign of the inroads MSU has made in Georgia.

Spartans impress LB target Drake (247) - 2014 Cass Tech linebacker Deon Drake had a good time at the Boise State game. That's about it.

Hosey visits MSU and OSU (Scout) - MSU picked up its first Cass Tech commit in more than a decade, and more players from the school are taking interest in MSU, including 2014 linebacker Gary Hosey.

Top in-state OL enjoys MSU visit (247) - Traverse City OL Connor Hayes visited for the Boise game. Had a good time. He seems to really like Indiana for some reason.

Spartans enter chase for 5-star LB (247) - Georgia linebacker Raekwon McMillan picked up an offer from MSU recently. Nothing newsworthy, but some quotes in the story are. Again: Georgia inroads.

"I can see that they have the ability and talent to compete against SEC schools. I know Michigan State is in the Big Ten where top-notch football is played and every year Michigan State competes for a Big Ten championship. Michigan State is a top 25 program every year. Michigan State is a school I'm going to consider."
