"Michigan State was my leader for a long time and once they offered me it made it even harder to say no to them. I took some time and looked around but in the end I was comparing everyone to what Michigan State has to offer. It's the best overall fit for me and I just like the people at Michigan State. Getting to know the coaches, the players and some of the recruits just made me realize that I wanted to be at Michigan State even harder than I expected."
Just want to say for the record that Matt Morrissey does NOT remind me of Jordan Kovacs.— Heck Dorland (@HeckAtTOC) July 15, 2013
First off, Morrissey is 3-5 inches taller. Second off, his tape doesn't really show Kovacs' preternatural positioning/tackling abilities.— Heck Dorland (@HeckAtTOC) July 15, 2013
Third, Kovacs weren't jumping no sideline routes from center-field for 100 yard TD returns or high pointing jump-balls in the end zone.— Heck Dorland (@HeckAtTOC) July 15, 2013
He's already pretty tall for a defensive back, and, as you can see in the highlights below, is pretty speedy. Simply, he's a really good athlete, and MSU will take its time figuring out where he'll play.
#MichiganState could land as many as seven or eight prospects from Illinois in 2014. They already have four.— Jared Shanker (@JShankerESPN) July 15, 2013
