Spartans Still in Hunt for Day?

One of the top prospects in the Midwest has yet to downsize his offer list. However, that does not mean every program that has offered is still in the running. Where does Michigan State stand with Sheldon Day? We have the latest.

The summer heat hitting the Midwest is nothing compared to the heat around Indianapolis (IN) Warren Central defensive lineman Sheldon Day. Spartan fans have wondered if Day was hot or cold on the Spartans and on Wednesday he answered.

"Michigan State is still in the hunt. I really like their coaching staff and Coach Gill really knows what he is doing. I also like the strength coach and he left me with a real good message the last time I was there."

Wednesday found Day on the highways of America getting ready to visit another of the country's top football programs Auburn. Will distance play a factor in his decision?

"No, at the moment distance does not really matter. I'm just looking for the best fit for me."

While some have suggested the 6-foot-2, 280-pound Day is close to putting the recruiting process behind him, he stresses he's not close at this time.

"I'm still working on it as it has been a long summer with a lot of practice. But I'm starting to get around to it. Right now I'm doing alright and life is trying to treat me good."

While many try getting Day on the phone daily for the latest news, he stresses he's not tired of the recruiting coverage. However, he did say he's not too quick to answer his phone.

"I won't say I'm getting tired of it all. I'm just selective with who I want to talk with. Right now I'm still going through the process and trying to weight out all my options to see what my best choice would be."

So when can fans expect to know more about the schools who are at the top of Day's recruitment?

"I really do not know when I'm going to trim my list. I'm going to try and get it done in the middle of August or sometime around there."

While Day is in the South checking out other programs, his heart and mind seem to already be focused on his upcoming seasons at Warren Central and possible championship run.

"I'm ready to get those lights on and get after it. Our goal is to win a championship and we've been working hard to achieve that goal all year."
