Doss makes first visit to East Lansing

U of D Jesuit junior cornerback has another visit set in the near future.

U of D Jesuit junior Sheldon Doss took his first college visit Wednesday and it was to Michigan State.

The 6-foot-1, 185-pound cornerback came up and took in a practice with his father. He said he liked the pace of practice.

"(I liked) the tempo and the excitement," Doss said. "There weren't any dull moments. Players were all ready to play."

Doss said he spent time watching the defensive backs in particular and said he liked how they played aggressively.

"The coach was telling the players to be patient, but aggressive," he said. "I thought it was good. (Coach Harlon Barnett) was focused on footwork. I liked how he was teaching them that."

Doss met Barnett, as well head coach Mark Dantonio and wide receivers coach Terry Samuel.

"They were really nice and they showed a lot of love," he said. "They made me feel very comfortable and welcome."

He also got a tour of all the facilities and met strength and conditioning coach Ken Mannie.

Doss camped at a variety of schools this summer. He is hearing primarily from Indiana, Cincinnati, Kentucky and Bowling Green.

He will be in East Lansing again soon.

"I'm coming up to Michigan State again when they play Western," he said.
