"The trip to Michigan State was great and I really liked it," Whitfield stated. "I hung out with a few of the other recruits, and took a tour of the campus. I'm being recruited by Coach (Pat) Narduzzi and we spent the entire day together."
"Michigan State told me this will be a slow process, and they're going to take their time with giving out offers," he added. "Coach (Mark) Dantonio said he will be checking me out closer this spring. They are recruiting me as an athlete, and they haven't said what side of the ball they see me playing."
"I'm very comfortable at Michigan State, and I love the campus," he continued. "We agreed to stay in contact, and I will be back there for spring football. Michigan State is up there pretty high on my list of schools."
The Spartans are not the only school showing interest in Whitfield, but he has not scheduled any upcoming visits yet.
