Chewins makes another trip to MSU

Clarkston tight end holds a pair of MAC offers and talks his summer plans for camps after getting positive feedback from the coaches after his latest visit to East Lansing.

Michigan State took a tight end from the eastside of the state in the 2014 class and has its eyes on a potential target from the same area in the 2015 class.

Clarkston's Cole Chewins made another visit to East Lansing last week to take in a spring practice, a visit he said went well.

"I got to talk and go through meetings with Coach (Jim) Bollman and see how he coaches up his guys," Chewins said. "I talked to the coaches and saw where they are at with me and I'm getting ready for summer."

The feedback he got was positive as the coaches were his work to add weight.

"They were really happy with the weight I've put on because I was kind of light but I'm 230 pounds now," he said. "They were happy I've done that. They like what they see with me, but they just want to get another live evaluation with me at camp and see how I perform and where they will go from there after that."

Chewins was at 208 pounds when his football season ended, but through adding calories to his diet and working hard, he has bulked up more and added weight to his 6-foot-7 frame.

That ability to add weight led his latest offer from Eastern Michigan, which thinks he could become an offensive tackle.

"Eastern said we are looking at you as an O-tackle first because we think you're going to fill out and be able to put on weight, but they said in some case that you don't that we would still use you as a tight end," he said.

That is the exception, though, as most schools – including his other offer, Central Michigan – are thinking of him as a tight end firstly.

"Most schools are thinking tight end and we can from there and you have the possibility of an O-tackle from your frame," he said.

Chewins will camp at Michigan State, Michigan and potentially Illinois, which he visited for its spring game last weekend.

"I'm just trying to find out who's really interested and who I have to spend my time with in the summer and who is kind of interested," he said.
