Spartans Looking at PA Tight End

On Tuesday, Michigan State made a stop in Pennsylvania to visit tight end Adam Breneman. We have the latest on what the Spartans had to say.

Camp Hill (PA) Cedar Cliff High School tight end Adam Breneman had a busy Tuesday picking up an offer from Notre Dame and having Michigan State stop by his school. For Breneman this was the first time he has made contact with the Spartans.

"I do not know much about Michigan State, but I watch Penn State a lot and have seen them play Penn State. What I like about them is they use their tight ends. Today was the first time I have spoken with Coach Warner and Michigan State is a school I'm going to look at and consider."

The biggest thing that has Adam excited about the Spartans is the high use of the tight end.

"Coach Warner said they really like to use the tight end and run a lot of pro-style with double tight ends. That really excites me about them."

One connection the Spartans might look at using when they deal with Adam is his favorite NFL tight end is a former Mark Dantonio player. Current Spartans tight end Garrett Celek's older brother Brent was a star for Dantonio while he was the coach at the University of Cincinnati.

"Brent Celek of the Eagles is one of my favorite players to watch play."

While he is excited about the interest the Spartans are showing. Adam is not sure a visit to East Lansing will be in his future this summer.

"I want to visit up to five schools this summer. Right now we're going to wait and see what happens with spring recruiting and then go from there and decide what schools we want to visit. I have no plans to make a decision until at least the start of my senior year. So we'll see what happens and go from there."

When asked to describe his game and what he feels are his strengths, Adam was quick to point about he likes to be a "Big Play" tight end.

"I love to make plays and love to have the ball in my hands. My strength is my ability to be big and have a big frame yet play like a wide receiver. The best part of my game is my hands and I tell myself there is no such thing as a bad pass. I try to catch everything thrown to me. I have been a wide receiver that past two years but every school is recruiting me as a tight end. This season I will be playing tight end. So now I'm working on filling out my frame and becoming a complete tight end being able to block and be a receiving threat."

Can the Spartans pull another tight end out of Pennsylvania? If so Adam Breneman looks to fit the bill of what they look for at the position.
