Early Ohio Spartan Targets 2016 & 2017

We looked at several names out of Ohio in the 2015 recruiting class Michigan State is looking at hard. Now, we move ahead as the Spartans are also hard at work with the 2016 and 2017 class as well.

Just one look at Michigan State's current roster and you see the influence Ohio has had on the Spartans success on the field. Mark Dantonio will not stop working the Buckeye state and we continue looking at some of the prospects the Spartans have their eyes on in the 2016 & 2017 recruiting classes.


Tommy Kraemer – Cincinnati (Ohio) Elder HS – Kraemer liked his game day visit to MSU and could be a prospect who takes in summer camp with the Spartans this summer. One of Ohio's top prospects at one of the top prep programs will make Kraemer a player to watch going forward.

Prince Micheal-Sammons – Cincinnati (Ohio) Hills Christian Academy – There was hope the former native of Lagos, Nigeria would visit MSU for a game this past season. However, that did not happen so the next goal is to get a visit this winter or spring. The Spartans are well respected here but could find themselves in a battle with Michigan as Micheal-Sammons has already visited for two games this past season.

Jango Glackin - Lebanon (Ohio) HS – This is a new name on the Spartans radar but one to keep an eye on as Glackin is a super athlete at 6-foot-2, 185-pounds. Projects as an outside linebacker but also showed well late this past season at running back. Will get bigger physically as he continues to train with a professional training group in Southwest Ohio that gets guys ready for the NFL Combine.

Jake Hausmann – Cincinnati (Ohio) Moeller HS – A top player from Moeller is always going to get strong looks from the Spartans and in Hausmann there are good reasons to see MSU working hard as he's projected as Ohio's top tight end in the 2016 recruiting class. Already a main contributor on a state championship team, Hausmann has great size at 6-foot-5, 235-pounds. Look for Notre Dame to also be a program to take an early interest.

Justin Layne – Cleveland (Ohio) Benedictine HS – The Spartans like what they see in the 6-foot-3, 170-pound wide receiver and will look to get him on campus this summer for camp. Shows great athleticism and quickness with the ability to adjust to the ball in the air.


Josh Myers – Miamisburg (Ohio) HS – With a father who played at Kentucky and now an older brother, it will not be an easy task to stop the Myers pipeline from heading to the SEC program. However, Myers is good enough early that the Spartans are sure to take an extra early look at the 6-foot-5, 255-pound freshman.

Jerron Cage – Cincinnati (Ohio) Winton Woods HS – If MSU is successful in landing older brother Daniel Cage, look out, Jerron is already ahead of the curve as he played important minutes this past season as a freshman. The size is already starting to show as the younger Cage stands just under 6-foot-2, 250-pounds.
