Mark Dantonio is coming after another UK pledge.

Shocky Jacques-Louis may be committed to Kentucky, but that’s not keeping Michigan State from coming after the Florida athlete.

Jacque-Louis announced Thursday that he scored an offer from the Spartan. He’s also earned offers from Louisville and Oregon State this week as his offer sheet continues to pile up.

Jacques-Louis hails from Dunbar High School in Fort Myers (FL), and he recently told that Kentucky was his leader thanks in large part to assistant coach Darin Hinshaw.

But that was before the Spartans came calling, and it wouldn’t be the first time Mark Dantonio nabbed a recruit from Kentucky’s grasp. We saw it happen in 2015 when he landed the Dowell brothers after they were previously committed to the Wildcats.

The 6-foot, 170-pound athlete is a three-star prospect who 247 Sports ranks 652nd overall in 2018. He holds offers from Georgia, Virginia, South Carolina, Syracuse, North Carolina, Missouri, Maryland, Indiana and South Florida among others. That kind of offer list shows that he’s becoming a big-time recruit, so the Spartans were smart to offer him.
