Talked to Kyonta Stallworth. Said he plans to commit after MSU opener "but I just might hold it off for my senior year. You never know."— Joe Rexrode (@joerexrode) August 7, 2013
Saint Clair Shores (Mich.) South Lake junior lineman Kyonta Stallworth gave me a pre-write commit story yesterday and told me his plan was to commit to Michigan State today. I was told by a great source that Stallworth told Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio that he did commit today. Stallworth is planning on going to MSU, but the only thing that needs to happen here is to get Stallworth's mom and dad in front of Dantonio to make everything 100-percent official. Dantonio takes a lot of pride in having few decommits from MSU, so all that's happening here is Stallworth's mom just really wants to get in front of Dantonio. Stallworth is planning on going to Michigan State. I'm not going to pull his commit story, or the analysis, or remove Stallworth as a MSU commit in the 247 database. From every source I've spoken with, Stallworth is going to Michigan State and is a Spartan. I'll have more on Stallworth when I call him this evening and plan on speaking with his mom as well.
So this is clear: Kyonta Stallworth is not listed as a commit on Scout and the stories removed because he says he isn't committed.— Mike Wilson (@MikeWScout) August 8, 2013
MSU has picked up its first commit in the class of 2015, according to 247 Sports and Scout's Mike Wilson.

Lineman Kyonta Stallworth visited MSU on Tuesday afternoon and committed to Mark Dantonio. He first visited for last season's Ohio State game. When he visited in June, he received his offer. It came right after Sound Mind Sound Body, which was run by new MSU recruiting coordinator Curtis Blackwell.
247 rates him as the No. 3 prospect in the state of Michigan for the class of 2015. He was considered a "Plan A-Plus" target. As Mike puts it, he's the type of player MSU has struggled to recruit in the past.
"It was the coaching staff, the players, it's closer to home and Michigan State has a good football program," Stallworth said. "Michigan State is a good fit for me and there's a chance I could start as a true freshman."
Below are his sophomore highlights.
