Culver Working Towards Dream

As one of the many high school football prospects who attended Saturday's Nike Football SPARQ Combine in Massillon, Ohio. Jordan Culver looked to open a few eyes with his performance. SpartanDigest.com spoke with Culver about one of his dream schools.

At 6-foot-3, 230-pounds, Jordan Culver of Eastpointe (MI) South Lakes High School knows earning a college scholarship is a lofty goal. However, Culver was one of over 1,200 high school prospects from 18 different states looking to show they have the skill to play at the next level.

How did Culver find Saturday's experience?

"It was nice," said Culver. "I'm just trying to compete and get recruited by a college by getting my times better so I can be in the system."

One school Culver has visited is Michigan State. How was his experience with the Spartans?

"I visited Michigan State for their Junior Day," explained Culver. "It was a very nice experience seeing the campus and seeing everything they have to offer to help everyone learn and to be successful so you're not stuck at a place you can't be successful at."

What would an offer from the Spartans mean to Culver?

"It would be amazing and the best thing that ever happened to me," Culver said with great excitement. "I have very high interest in Michigan State, but it's a big school and great people go there. They have a great reputation and do a great job of nurturing their players to make sure they get where they need to be in life."

Culver knows work is needed to his game. However, he also feels he brings some strength to areas others may lack.

"I need to work on my strength," he said. "But I feel I bring great leadership abilities and I never give up on the field."
