Football 'Crootin Roundup is coming to East Lansing

The Spartans are hosting the majority of their 2013 commits this weekend, in addition to some prospects they want to add to the fold.

With a dramatic week of recruiting drawing to a close, an exciting weekend of visitors at Michigan State is set.

After Drake Harris decided to open up his recruitment -- and play only football -- Spartan fans can look forward to Harris being on campus with most of the 15 commits for the 2013 class on their official visits.

The Spartans tend to try and bring all the class together for one visit and this weekend, with the Ohio State basketball game, provides the perfect opportunity. It also makes for a good sell to uncommitted prospects on campus to see the class together.


Pitt recruit Tyler Boyd not visiting MSU (SB Nation) - MSU was hoping to get a visit from Pitt wide receiver commit Tyler Boyd, but it looks like he won't be coming to East Lansing anymore and is solid to the Panthers.

Could Williams be the one? (Rivals) - Defensive back Justin Williams fits the mold of what MSU looks for in its secondary and the interest is there. He will be on campus this weekend.

Riles visit pushed back (247) - As MSU tries to add a top defensive end to the class, Florida commit Antonio Riles is working to make it to East Lansing -- and has a weekend in mind.


Hirschfield impressed with time in Spartan Country (Rivals) - Big defensive line target Billy Hirschfield came to MSU for a junior day last weekend and left with a good view of the program. His recruitment very well could be another Wisconsin-MSU battle.

Marshall enjoy MSU junior day (Scout) - MSU hosted Southfield defensive end Lawrence Marshall again, and this time told him how they envision using him in their system.

Watkins at east during MSU visit (Scout) - Darien Watkins is an athlete who plays many positions on high school team, but doesn't have an MSU offer yet -- but he is looking to earn one.

Spartans offer peach state safety (247) - MSU has had success recently in Georgia, especially with Darqueze Dennard, and they were busy in Georgia this week. Safety Cortez McDowell has an impressive early offer list and MSU added to it.
