Stallworth: 'I haven't committed'

Reports on Wednesday indicated that the junior offensive lineman had committed to Michigan State while on campus, but he said that it was untrue.

When the news broke around 1:30 p.m. Wednesday that Saint Clair Shores South Lake offensive lineman Kyonta Stallworth had committed to Michigan State, people naturally were excited.

As it turned out, the reports (including ours) were not exactly correct.

Stallworth said to me in a text that he had not committed and repeated that Wednesday night.

"No, no, no, no," he said. "I haven't committed."

Stallworth did deliver a message to head coach Mark Dantonio.

"This is what I told Coach D: That in 2015, there is a 90 percent change that I will be there," Stallworth said. "So, I guess people took that as like I committed."

Stallworth did, however, enjoy his visit to East Lansing.

"I liked everything to be honest with you," he said. "They took us a locker room tour, the dorms, the coaches – I liked everything."

He said that all the things he liked led to him telling Coach Dantonio there is a good chance he comes to East Lansing.

"That's why there is a 90 percent chance," Stallworth said. "That and Curtis Blackwell."

Stallworth said he has known Blackwell for a couple years, through Blackwell's work with MaxEx and Sound Mind, Sound Body.

He said that he will come back to Michigan State to visit for the Western Michigan game on August 30 – and likely with his family.

As for a possible commitment at that time, Stallworth said: "I am not telling nobody, everybody is going to have to wait and see."
