Spartan Football Recruiting Engine Humming Along

First, here is an interview from The Silver Bullet (a Buckeye Blog) with Shaw Lane Spartans in a series they call, Behind Enemy Lines. The questions focus on the Spartans recruiting class prior to the last few days, what the needs are and who we might be excited about in a couple years.

One week ago: Darian Hicks, cornerback. From 24/7 Sports: Hicks had at least 17 scholarship offers including Penn State, Illinois, Iowa, Boston College, Cincinnati, West Virginia, Minnesota, Virginia and Pitt before selecting the Spartans. See more here.

Over the weekend: Tight end prospect Dylan Chmura, son of former All-Pro Mark Chmura, committed to Michigan State on Sunday. The 6-foot-6, 225-pound recruit stars at Waukesha West (Wisc.), where his father is a coach. He was not ranked due to missing his junior season with an ACL injury. See more at The Only Colors.

This week: Wide receiver Trey Kilgore picked MSU over offers from Boston College, Iowa and Kentucky on Monday. See more at The Little Brother Blog.

This week: Jay Harris, wide receiver: Despite not planning on taking many receivers in the 2013 class, Harris earned an offer from a few months ago. He offer list was small, but Penn State and Pitt also were showing strong interest. Outside of the state of Pennsylvania, he didn't get much exposure, but MSU has been high on him for some time. More from The Only Colors.

Coming Wednesday: Choosing between MSU, chUMps, and ND.
Nearly a year after many thought Drake Harris would be an early commit to Michigan State, Drake plans to announce his decision on Wednesday. This comes from multiple sources including Drake and his father. The tea leaves appear to suggest MSU as the choice but Drake has been in close contact with UM and recently received a football offer from Brady Hoke. Harris attended the 2012 Izzo Shootout last weekend.
