Wezensky takes in MSU's win against Michigan

Sophomore quarterback sees first game as a recruit in Spartan Stadium after a clutch performance Friday night. Wezensky recaps his visit with Spartan Digest.

There is no better time to play your best football than in the playoffs and that has been the case for Fort Wayne Bishop Luers and quarterback Noah Wezensky in the past couple weeks.

Wezensky began an exciting weekend on Friday night by throwing his first game-winning touchdown pass in a second-round playoff win.

"It was one of those moments where they went up and we had 40 seconds to drive the ball down about 80 yards and we did it in 40 seconds," he said. "I threw the pass with 8 seconds left. You really have to be focused on it and get everybody else focused with it and execute plays."

The sophomore, who has an offer from Akron, woke up early the next morning and hit the road for Michigan State with his teammate, wide receiver Austin Mack.

"We went to visit Notre Dame together, too," he said. "It's cool to have him with me because we like to map things out and talk about the process and everything. It was good having him and up and seeing the school and showing them what they have to offer."

The pair took in the Spartans' 29-6 win against Michigan and Wezensky said he focused in on watching Connor Cook.

"I was definitely a Michigan State fan going into it and I expected them to win," he said. "I kind of predicted that. It was fun seeing some of the players that I've talked to play. I got to talk to the coaches after the game and it was a great experience."

As part of a big recruiting weekend, Wezensky also took in the Spartans' basketball practice Saturday.

"It was really cool," he said. "I saw some of the guys I've watched for a couple of years like Gary Harris, Adreian Payne and Keith Appling, so that was pretty cool."

Next on tap is a visit to Cincinnati with Mack on December 5 and a couple more possibilities.

"I'll get in touch with the Bowling Green coaches and I will probably visit them at some point and maybe IU," he said. "Cincinnati is the only set one right now."

Bishop Luers will face Concordia (Ind.), who beat Luers 17-13 earlier in the season, for the sectional championship Friday.
