Impact: Kyonta Stallworth

The Spartans have sought to bring in elite offensive linemen to recent class, does Stallworth fit the bill? What does he mean for the rest of the 2015 class on the O-line?

A good week got even better for Michigan State after all, and South Lake (St. Clair Shores) offensive tackle Kyonta Stallworth provided plenty of reason to be excited when he committed.

Stallworth is exactly the type of player the Spartans have struggled to recruit in recent years: An elite offensive lineman (who also could be a mean defensive tackle).

He brings size and talent to a position that really needs to add depth in East Lansing.

The Spartans brought in just one offensive lineman in 2013 (Cass Tech's Dennis Finley) and have four currently committed for 2014 – a number which figures to hit five.

As the Spartans look at 2015, Stallworth was the first key target on the offensive line, and they landed him very early in the process.

Bringing a top talent can only help with other in-state linemen for the 2015 class -- and at all positions, for that matter.

He also gives the Spartans more to be excited about with a great start to the in-state recruiting for 2015, as he joined Cass Tech quarterback Jayru Campbell and Orchard Lake St Mary's cornerback Tyson Smith, who committed last week Wednesday.

Stallworth continues the in-state momentum the Spartans have been building under Curtis Blackwell and he also is close with other in-state kids such as Oak Park running back John Kelly and Detroit King linebacker Tyriq Thompson, both of whom have MSU offers. He also is close to Northville offensive lineman David Moorman, who has good interest from the Spartans.
