Hometown: Cincinnati (Ohio)
High School: Moeller High School
HT: 6-1 WT: 199
Position: Wide Receiver
Experience: Redshirted in 2012
2012 Season: Some thought Madaris could come in and compete right away after a stellar prep career at Moeller High School. After getting a slow start, the decision to redshirt was wise as the Spartans will have the Ohio native for four full seasons.
Strengths: Came out of high school as a top pass catching receiver capable of stretching the field. Must show these skills early in camp to give him a chance to earn a bigger role in the Spartans offense.
Weaknesses: Lacks college game day experience.
Overall: It is no secret the Spartans need players who can catch the football on offense. Madaris entered MSU as a solid receiver and should have grown physically over the past year to give him an early chance to break into the two-deep and contribute early.
