MSU staying in contact with Hogue

Indiana wide receiver makes first visit to East Lansing and spends one-on-one time with a couple of coaches.

2014 New Haven wide receiver Jordan Hogue was one of the top receivers at Michigan State during the summer camp circuit and attracted attention from the MSU staff.

The 6-foot-1, 175-pound receiver has been hearing from coach Terry Samuel about three times a week since the camp season concluded.

During one of their talks on Facebook last week, Samuel and Hogue planned a visit and Hogue made his way to East Lansing on Tuesday.

"The visit was pretty good, actually," Hogue said. "I really liked the one-on-one time with Coach Samuel and getting to know him and his coaching style more. I also liked the facilities and everything they had to offer."

Hogue said he and Samuel spent time going over schematics of the wide receiver position at MSU.

"We just went over position stuff," Hogue said. "He kind of went over some of the offense and some of the concepts and techniques that he teaches and coaches. We went over schematics and things like that."

Samuel also broke down Hogue's game, how he could come in at MSU and be molded and also things he can work on.

In addition to the one-on-one time with Samuel, Hogue said coach Dave Warner showed him and his parents around campus, the press box and the field – and his parents were happy with the visit.

"They were very impressed from the feedback I got from them on the ride home," Hogue said. "They liked it just as much as I did." Hogue currently doesn't hold any offers, but MSU is in steady contact.

"They said they are very interested cause they keep in contact a lot" Hogue said. "They said they will come to one of my first two games to see to where they want to go from there."

Indiana also is in touch with Hogue and he has a visit planned to IU next Sunday.

Hogue said he will be coming up for a home game at MSU this fall.
