Spartans Expect Solid Junior Day Turnout

Spartan Digest has been working the phones this week putting together a rough list of names expected to visit Michigan State on Sunday.

While Mark Dantonio and his staff are looking to place the finishing touches on their 2013 recruiting class the work for 2014 gets underway with a Sunday night Junior Day.

With a home basketball schedule not leaning towards holding many Junior Days this year, Michigan State is hoping to have a couple of their top early commitments joined by several prospects of interest.

Here is a look at some of the names expected Sunday.
