Weber impressed with latest visit to MSU

Cass Tech running back has Michigan State in his top group, talks having Jayru Campbell at Michigan State and more.

Cass Tech already provided Michigan State with its 2015 quarterback commitment, but it also is home to a player they would like to add at running back in that class.

Junior running back Mike Weber said that his teammate and quarterback Jayru Campbell being committed to MSU can't hurt with his decision.

"He has been my quarterback for a long time and we have a good relationship," he said. "Playing with him on the same team for four more years wouldn't hurt."

Weber visited Michigan State a couple weeks ago for ‘Spartan Day' and said it was a nice visit and different than previous ones he had taken.

"I was more impressed because I had just came up to see the practice and I saw the enthusiasm throughout the practice and that made me more excited for my decision later on," he said.

The 5-foot-10, 205-pound running back said he liked the atmosphere and the coaches. He also said it was cool to see Curtis Blackwell working at Michigan State.

"It was really cool because I never really pictured him in a college uniform like that because he always was making sure we were getting to colleges and being where we were supposed to be," he said. "That definitely would be one of the reasons I would pick Michigan State because I know I got a family member up there. So, that would be really nice."

Weber said he visited Tennessee recently and that put them in his top group, but added it's kind of fair. He said his top three are "Michigan State, most definitely, and Michigan and Tennessee."

He said he has always wanted to make a decision at the All-American game, but might make it at the end of this season.

When it comes to his decision, Weber said having Campbell at MSU is nice and that he and junior lineman Joshua Alabi have talked about being a package deal.

"We grew up saying we were going to play together in college," Weber said. "We really will try and play college together if we could, but if it doesn't work out, we will go our separate ways."

As for this season, Weber said he has his goals set.

"Personally, I want to reach my goals of 2,00 yards and 25 touchdowns," he said. "Then I want to just help my team the best way I can and get a third championship in a row."

Weber has offers from his top three, as well as Ohio State, Illinois and Syracuse.
