MSU Offer: 2017 Three-Star Ohio Defensive Back

Amir Riep was one of 300 prospects who visited East Lansing for the Oregon game on Sept. 12. A little more than a month later, Riep was back on campus for the Indiana game.

Four days later, the junior defensive back received his seventh total offer from the Spartans, announcing it on Twitter Wednesday.

Riep spoke to Rivals.com recruiting analyst Matt Dorsey about the offer, emphasizing the great atmospheres at Spartan Stadium.

It means a lot, I am so grateful to receive the offer. Michigan State is an exciting place to be and it was a great atmosphere there. I spoke with Coach Harlon Barnett and Coach Dantonio when I was up there. They said like how physical I am and how I make plays.

The No. 18 ranked player in the state of Ohio also holds offers from Cincinnati, Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky, among others.

MSU Offer: 2018 Pennsylvania Quarterback

Michigan State has offered its first sophomore pocket passer, handing the honors to Phil Jurkovec, from Gibsonia (Pa.), who is in his first season at quarterback. 

It's his fifth offer so far into his recruitment, picking up early offers within the state of Pennsylvania, highlighted by Penn State, Pitt and Temple, along with Wisconsin.

It’s exciting. I have some, but I still have a couple years left and I just want to build on it. I try to put it to the side, go out and play and have fun out there and try to win every game.

Mike Wilson of 247Sports also writes that Jurkovec's high school will be the top seed in the Penn 4A playoffs.

Donnie Corley & Issues With Scheduling Officials

Corley and Detroit King are currently preparing to face Wyandotte Roosevelt in the district finals on Saturday, the team Corley transferred from following his sophomore year.

Corley has three remaining official visits this season, already visiting both Michigan State and Tennessee. Michigan, LSU, Notre Dame and Ohio State also have Corley's interest, but if King reaches the MHSAA Division 2 championship at Ford Field, there may be only room for one more official, since each playoff game leading up to the championship for King will occur on Saturday's.

The No. 2 ranked senior recruit in the state of Michigan will announce his verbal commitment on December 8, his mother's birthday.

JUCO Offensive Tackle Setting Up Official

Michigan State didn't crack Garett Boles' top seven this past July, but they're expecting an official visit from the JUCO lineman, from Lehi (UT), the No. 3 ranked recruit in the country.

A date has yet to be scheduled, but Boles said that the process is being finalized.

Auburn, Alabama, Arizona State, Arkansas, Nebraska and Oregon, among 16 others have offered Boles.
