Littlejohn plans to camp at MSU

Ohio offensive lineman has plans to camp at only two schools and Michigan State is one of them. He talks about his visit to East Lansing last week and the insight he garnered.

Hunter Littlejohn's second visit to Michigan State brought some good insight from a current commit as well as an unexpected talk with head coach Mark Dantonio on Tuesday.

"I didn't really get a ton of time to actually talk to any of the coaches before the practice," he said, "but after the practice I got to talk to Coach (Mark) Staten quite a bit, Coach (Mike) Tressel and Coach (Mark) Dantonio and they were all basically saying the June 1 camp is going to be a big one."

The Spartans' coaches have watched film of the Olentangy (Ohio) Liberty offensive lineman and had one specific praise for him.

"They like what they see and Dantonio's one comment to me was that I can move well," Littlejohn said. "That's basically the acknowledgement I get from everybody that sees my film. They just want to see me in person on June 1 and if they feel like they can pull an offer then, they will."

Michigan State 2014 signee Nick Padla also was in attendance for Tuesday's spring practice. The offensive tackle knows a thing or two about doing what it takes to get an offer from Michigan State after going to camps and earning an offer late in the fall.

Littlejohn had a chance to talk with Padla about why he chose MSU.

"He was just saying that Michigan State was between them and Illinois, UC and Kentucky, I think," he said. "He picked Michigan State because they win. He also was saying he really enjoyed his visits there. That's the part that really made him make his decision. He just said that he saw the good vibe there."

So in his attempt to earn an offer, Littlejohn will camp at Michigan State. That will be one of only two camps he plans on attending, with hometown Ohio State being the other.

"Those are the only two camps I'm really planning on doing," he said. "Those are the only two schools I'm really pursuing outside of the offers I have."

He said because of it being narrowed down like that, a Michigan State offer would be a big one.

As of now, the schools recruiting him the hardest are Indiana, Illinois and Cincinnati with Duke in the mix as well. He also visited OSU, IU and UC last week.
