Sophomore (Illinois) WR To Visit MSU

Micah Jones has visited both Northwestern and Iowa a combined four times since April. 4, so it's not a surprise that the two Big Ten schools were the first of three to offer the 2018 pass catcher.

Jones has also tested the waters within the SEC, collecting an offer from Vanderbilt after participating in their summer FNL camp. The 6-4, 182 pounder has already visited Michigan State before, but has plans on taking another unofficial visit to a basketball game this season.

I liked everything really. The college, the atmosphere and the coaches. It's like nothing I've ever seen before. I love it.

Along with the four mentioned, Jones has also traveled to Notre Dame and Illinois for an unofficial.

Junior (Georgia) QB Reflects On MSU Visit

David Mills, the greater Atlanta area 2017 pro-style specialist caught up with Woody Wommack of to discuss the latest on his recruitment, specifically both Michigan State and Michigan, as well as Stanford and UCLA.

Mills visited the Spartans earlier this season for the Oregon game. He has family currently residing in Michigan, with his father having graduated from MSU. The No. 88 ranked junior recruit nationally plans on verbally committing in the offseason.

The Spartans offered Mills on Sept. 23, 11 days after his first unofficial visit.

2016 MSU Commit Obtains U.S. Army All-American Bowl Jersey

Brandon Randle, of Battle Creek (Mich.), was the eighteenth member to join the 2016 class for Michigan State as the eleventh ranked senior recruit in the state of Michigan.

This past Monday, his celebrated high school career will conclude at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, for the annual Army Bowl on January, 9. The jersey was presented to him at Battle Creek Central.

It’s real special interacting with the military. It’s real good they’re supporting high school football. It means a whole lot to me my family and community.

No offers have come Randle's way since he verbally committed to MSU this past June, but still maintains a solid offering from schools in the Midwest, including Indiana, Minnesota and Toledo.

MSU In Top Three For Daelin Hayes

Almost a month has past since Hayes decommitted from Southern Cal following the release of former head coach Steve Sarkisian. He's followed that up with two official visits to Notre Dame and Ohio State, the other two schools on Hayes' list of favorites.

Hayes will travel to both Michigan State, Oregon and LSU to round out the three available officials, upon which, he'll make his second go-around at verbally committing.

The Irish can take credit for aggressively recruiting the Ann Arbor Skyline linebacker even when he was committed to the Trojans, which has resulted in positivity, being that they were the first to bring in Hayes for an official.

The previous visit to East Lansing for Hayes was on April 25 for MSU's spring game. He'll be back on campus for the Maryland game this weekend.

I’ve seen the campus 1,000 times going back to my freshman year. Coach (Mark) Dantonio has been very consistent. I’m excited to get back.

The four-star recruit is the No. 8 ranked senior outside linebacker in the country.
