All Spartan: Benny McGowan

Michigan State was looking for tough hardnosed offensive linemen in the 2012 class and they feel they have one in Benny McGowan.

Benny McGowan

Centerville (OH) HS

6-4 / 285 lbs.

Scout.com Ranking: Offensive Guard #33 overall

Fellow incoming outside offensive linemen: Zach Higgins, Kodi Kieler

Allen Trieu on McGowan: Benny's an interior guy who's built very wide and strong. He's clearly been in the weight room already. He's played for one of the best teams in Ohio and against many of the best and has always been a standout. He's a great run blocker. He'll need more reps as a pass blocker, but he fits the physical way MSU runs the ball.

DANTONIO ON McGOWAN: "Benny comes from an outstanding program in Centerville High School that is built on toughness and competes in one of the best conferences in America. We saw him play in 2011, and he's very physical and explosive. He comes off the ball well and gets movement immediately. He is also an excellent shot putter and was a team MVP in 2011."
