SD Quick Take: Monty Madaris

Cincinnati (Ohio) Moeller High School has been good to Michigan State in the past. Monty Madaris will continue the trend in the years to come. Here is a quick look at the newest Spartan.

The up and down recruitment of Cincinnati (Ohio) Moeller High School wide receiver Monty Madaris is over with his announced pledge to Michigan State on Sunday.

Here is a quick look at the newest member of the Spartans recruiting class of 2012.


With two former players out of Cincinnati (Ohio) Moeller High School, Madaris signing with the Spartans will give the Green & White a true pipeline program in Southwest Ohio. However, the skill set of the top wide receiver out of Ohio is what Spartan fans will love to see.


Should Spartan fans be concerned with all the drama that surrounded Madaris during the recruiting process? No! I've dealt with Madaris the past two years and have found him to be a solid person on and off the field. What fans witnessed was the intense level of pressure some prospects feel in making the final call.


Look at the group of receivers Mark Dantonio has set to arrive in East Lansing and be ready to be blown away. The Spartans will be young at the position in the fall; however, Madaris and Aaron Burbridge give the program two four-star prospects with each being the top receiver in their state.

Madaris has all the tools to be a great one and is more advanced at this stage than B.J. Cunningham was when he enrolled at MSU.
