Chase getting the "inside scoop" on MSU

Plant City (Fla.) sophomore wide receiver has current Spartan in his ear after getting offered this week by Michigan State.

Plant City (Fla.) wide receiver Tavares Chase has seen his recruitment pick up of late, with offers from the likes of Florida and Ohio State coming in this week.

Michigan State also joined the mix on Tuesday, extending an offer to the talented 2016 wide out as wide receivers coach Terry Samuel stopped by Plant City.

"At practice today, we had an open practice and the wide receivers coach was at practice," Chase said. "He stopped by to check me out.

"He just liked my film and he thinks I would be good at Michigan State. I would be a good prospect for them when the time comes."

The 6-foot-2, 170-pound rising junior said he thought it was crazy and while it made him feel good, the offer reminded him to stay humble because he hasn't gotten to a school yet.

When it comes to Michigan State, he already has heard about the school as current Spartan Devyn Salmon has been in his ear.

"I know he had been giving me the inside scoop," Chase said. "Recently, he saw I had been picking up offers so he had been telling me to come to Michigan State, but I said they hadn't offered me. On Tuesday, they did, so he said congrats."

Due to a former teammate, he was paying attention to Michigan State and sees a potential good fit.

"I know they mix it up with the run and pass game, I would fit in good and they won the Rose Bowl," he said.

Chase plans to camp at Florida State, Florida, Miami and Clemson this summer, but one school in particular he is hoping to hear from.

"I'm still waiting to hear from Alabama because they had stopped by and told me they were going to watch my film with Nick Saban one day this week and they are going to let me know," he said.
