Hester Talks Spartans

New Jersey native and 2014 athlete Kiy Hester talks about Michigan State as he gets ready to spend a couple of days on campus.

At 6-foot-1, 200-pounds, 2014 athlete Kiy Hester of De Paul Catholic (Wayne, NJ.) spoke with SpartanDigest.com about his upcoming visit to Michigan State.

"I've been talking with Michigan State's defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi," said Hester. "I'm going to be there for two days so I can get a feel for them. I'm going to watch their team camp and walk around with the players and watch all the coaches and stuff."

Hester has made it a point to know about the Spartans prior to his visit.

"I've watched a lot of their films," said Hester. "I know their defensive backs are very good and some of the top in college football."

Hester, who is being looked at as a safety and receiver has already seen high interest from many and is looking to visit several programs in the upcoming weeks.

"I'm going to visit Rutgers on Saturday," said Hester. "I'm also going to visit Connecticut for their first game of the season. I'm going to try and visit some more schools, but I'm not sure what ones."

Don't expect Hester to make a quick decision on any school.

"Right now I would like to wait until after my senior season and after I take my official visits," said Hester.

While Hester's offer list is impressive, he is staying humble.

"I'm surprised by all the offers," said Hester. "But it makes me want to work even harder so I can get more."

Despite being recruited as a receiver and safety, Hester sounds like he likes the thought of being on the defensive side of the ball when asked to describe his strengths on the field.

"My strength is being physical along with my hands and speed," said Hester. "But you can always work on everything and improve your football IQ."
