Michigan State had success with a defensive back from Dayton, Ohio with current safety R.J. Williamson and the Spartans are looking to strike gold again in 2014.

Dayton Marshall defensive back Vayante Copeland committed to Michigan State on Sunday after his visit.

Copeland is the first defensive back in the class and will likely play cornerback once he arrives in East Lansing.

He is the ninth member of the 2014 class, and the third from Ohio.

We'll have more here later. Highlights below.
