Mann back in East Lansing for a visit

After growing up down the road, 2017 quarterback takes a recruiting trip to Michigan State for the first time. He is a name to know moving forward.

Bruce Mann is no stranger to being around Michigan State football, having grown up just down the road in Webberville.

But Tuesday brought the Bay City Western freshman quarterback's first visit as a football recruit.

"It was a great experience and I saw a lot of cool things," he said. "I loved the position meeting. That was really cool to sit in and listen how the quarterbacks interact with their coach (Brad Salem)."

His father is the coach at Bay City Western, but previously was the coach at Webberville.

"We are kind of accustomed to all that," he said. "He was the head coach there so he was always going to the practices."

The 6-foot-2, 185-pound rising sophomore has visits lined up to Purdue and Northern Illinois coming up as well. He also is working with Saginaw-based Star-Studded Elite and doing work with his high school team.

"We have just been going to a lot of practices and a couple tournaments," he said. "I've been throwing at least three to four times a week, working on steps and throwing and mechanics and stuff, going to the weight room three times a week. We are going to start doing speed training and the summer."
