Listermann Impressed by Spartans

Saturday afternoon one of Ohio's top prospects in the 2015 recruiting class had a chance to watch Michigan State battle rival Michigan. How did Noah Listermann feel about his game day visit? Spartan Digest has the latest.

Offensive linemen that stand 6-foot-7, 270-pounds don't grow on trees. Saturday, Michigan State had a chance to show Cincinnati (Ohio) Winton Woods offensive lineman Noah Listermann what they are all about.

"I made it up to Michigan State and it was great," said Listermann Sunday afternoon. "It was a good time but we got there a little late. So we watched the game and did some recruiting staff afterwards."

Only a junior, Listermann has not seen too many college games, especially ones of this magnitude.

"This was the third college game I've attended," he said. "But the atmosphere was pretty sweet and Michigan State is pretty great. I hadn't really watched them before but was hearing how great Michigan was and to watch Michigan State really put it on them was something else. The stadium is really nice too. It's big but not too big to a point of where it was overwhelming."

As for the Spartans offensive line play, the second-year football player came away impressed.

"Their offensive line is pretty good," he said. "I really can't critique a player who is playing at a higher caliber than me, but they looked really good."

After the game Listermann got a chance to catch up with his main recruiting coach for a few minutes.

"We got a chance to hang out in the locker room after the game," explained Listermann. "I spoke with coach (Harlon) Barnett and he said I looked pretty good and some other stuff that they talk with recruiting about."

As for his own development this season, Listermann is starting to see and feel the progress he's making on the field.

"I feel I've gotten better every game," he said. "I know in our last game, I felt I was ten times more aggressive than I have been any time this season and it felt great. My technique is getting better and I'm staying lower. Practice after practice and game after game I feel I'm getting better."

With only one offer at this time, Listermann is a prospect who is going to see his stock climb in the coming months and Michigan State could well be one of the teams to show heavy interest.
