Michigan State football recruiting: Quarterback Chris Durkin flips to Virginia Tech

Jonathan Daniel

MSU has lost a commitment in the class of 2014, according to the Roanoke Times.

Quarterback Chris Durkin has decommitted from MSU and committed to Virginia Tech. Durkin is from Youngstown, Ohio, but there's a bit of a family connection.

That last point is key. Durkin wasn't going to play early at MSU. The Spartans likely will go with Connor Cook for two more years. Freshman Damion Terry has drawn rave reviews while redshirting this season. There's also redshirt freshman Tyler O'Connor, another highly-touted guy in the mix. Also throw in 2015 QB commit Jayru Campbell.

Could O'Connor transfer? Maybe. But that might not make much of a difference to Durkin.

MSU tries to bring in one quarterback in each recruiting class. It will be interesting to see where they go from here. It's late in the process. A lot of guys are already committed. Do you offer someone you wouldn't otherwise? Do you offer them a preferred walk-on spot?

In the meantime, get on the Tommy Vento bandwagon before it's too late.
