Football 'Crootin Roundup is taking the JUCO route

Mary Langenfeld-US PRESSWIRE

MSU linebacker commit Jon Reschke raised some eyebrows when he tweeted that he received an offer from U-M. But that appears to not mean anything.

Maryland, Rutgers will help other Big Ten teams (Freep) - More teams = more recruiting grounds. Shilique Calhoun is from New Jersey, while Darien Harris is from Maryland, so MSU already has some relationships, there. If Ohio State signs some more people there, it opens up more Ohioans to MSU and so on and so forth.

Holmes knows he's almost there (Scout) - MSU running back commit Gerald Holmes says he finished with 94 carries, 1,023 and 14 touchdowns on the year and talks about how excited he is to get to MSU. He hopes Le'Veon Bell stays to teach him. That's 10.8 yards per carry, by the way.

Combs narrows list to seven (Scout) - Four-star JUCO DT Marquel Combs of Pierce College (Calif.) has MSU in his final seven, along with Kansas, Kansas State, Cal, Iowa State, Washington and Oregon State. He is from Memphis. He plans to announced on Dec. 19, which is JUCO signing day.

Trejo visit makes big impact (247) - Three-star JUCO defensive end Trevon Trejo visited for the Northwestern game and says MSU is his No. 1. He wants to visit New Mexico and New Mexico State, too. He doesn't know when he'll make a decision or if he'll graduate early.

What I am hearing (247) - For what it's worth, 247's Bill Kurelic says MSU is the team to beat for Cass Tech OL David Dawson, and the fact he will miss the Ohio State-Michigan game because of the state championship would appear to help MSU's cause.

Henderson enjoys visit to MSU (Rivals) - 2014 four-star Virginia quarterback Caleb Henderson visited for the Northwestern game and said he had a good time. The additions of Rutgers and Maryland would seem to help MSU a bit, as more Big Ten schools would be closer for his family to visit when MSU plays. His decision is believed to be coming somewhat soon.
