Brazile Ready for Spartans Camp

Michigan State may have found a hidden gem when Landon Brazile camps with the Spartans this summer.

With Michigan State in hot pursuit of Dayton (Ohio) Thurgood Marshall defensive back Vayante Copeland the Spartans may have found a hidden gem in first year football player Landon Brazille.

Standing 6-foot-6, 225-pounds, Brazile is looking to put basketball to the side and concentrate on being a college football player. Thursday night Brazile attended his first football camp and did extremely well.

"This was my first time at a football camp," Brazile said with a huge grin. "I had a fun time with my teammates and I enjoyed learning the new things the coaches at the camp taught me."

The fact Brazile is now looking at football instead of basketball should be no surprise as his father played at the college level.

"My dad played football at Texas A&M," explained Brazile. "His career was cut short because he hurt his shoulder. I now can see I have a better chance of playing football in college."

Brazile will get a chance to show off his skills in front of the Spartans when he attends camp with a couple of his teammates on June 16th.

"I'll be attending camp at Michigan State next Sunday," said Brazile. "Michigan State has been in school twice and I look forward to seeing their facilities and seeing if they have a good academic program I can get in. I'm also looking forward to meeting the rest of the coaches because good coaches are important."

While Brazile is a raw talent he is the type of player Michigan State has enjoyed great success with in the past and his future looks extremely bright.
