Spartans keeping a close eye on Moorman

Northville junior offensive lineman visited Wednesday and had plenty of time with the MSU coaches to see what their plans are in his recruitment.

The first "Spartan Day" brought about 40 players from around the state of Michigan to East Lansing on Wednesday.

Northville junior offensive lineman David Moorman was among the top 2015 prospects to visit Michigan State.

"It was a great day," Moorman said. "I saw everything. I talked to all the coaches. I had met Curtis Blackwell a couple times before in summer stuff, but this was the first time I got a chance to talk to him. I talked to Coach D. Everything was good."

Moorman also spent time talking with Coach Terry Samuel, Coach Jim Bollman and Coach Mark Staten, who spent some time one-on-one with him.

"He sat me and down and talked about where are we going to go from here. He said they liked me a lot, they like the way I play and that I have a lot of potential. They really said they want to see my play live before they make their decision to offer me or not."

Moorman, who holds offer from Central Michigan and Eastern Michigan, said the Spartans didn't really hear about him until CMU offered him in May. The coaches saw him at an MSU camp and Sound Mind Sound Body, but want to see more than camps and highlight tapes.

"They said they wanted to see me, how I play and how I handle a bad play, like how I come back from that," Moorman said. "They at least want to see me once before they decide to offer me."

An offer from MSU – or any Big Ten school – would mean a lot to Moorman.

"I grew up a fan of Big Ten football," he said. "It would be really cool to have my first Big Ten. It would be really cool to have a program like Michigan State be the program to do it.

"I have had a lot of family go there, so it would be really exciting for my family."

Moorman's dad came with him Wednesday, as well as his head football coach.

"I think it was a great day overall for us," he said. "I'm really excited to see what the future holds and I definitely am going to be coming up to as many games as I can."

Moorman and the Northville Mustangs kicked off their high-school season with KLAA (Kensington Lakes Athletic Association) media day on Thursday.

"That is the first time they are doing it this year, so all the schools in the KLAA will be there," he said. "It should be fun. Monday we have two-a-days and I am definitely excited.

"It's about time. It has been a long offseason."
