She adds that Atkins, a 6-2, 270-pound defensive line prospect, told her there was snow on his visit to check out the Spartans, but adds that he has not been home long enough to discuss more about the visit than that and notes that his priority is to take care of his school assignments.

The athletic defender also took official visits to check out Pittsburgh, which he said he enjoyed, and North Carolina State along with his trips to Auburn and Georgia last weekend. He rated his Auburn trip a perfect "10" and his UGA visit a "9.5."
