Michigan State loaded up on the offensive line after only taking one player on the OL in 2013. That said, the Spartans will look to add more bodies up front again in this class to pad future depth.
The Spartans picked up a big early commitment from Detroit King's Kyonta Stallworth, who committed while playing for St. Clair Shores (Mich.) South Lake.
Now, the Spartans will enter camp season with offers out to some players around the Midwest with offers – and one in-state player that might be high on the board.
Kyonta Stallworth – Detroit King
Stallworth is among the Spartans' three commits and has probably the best offer list of the trio. He holds offers from Florida, Tennessee, UCLA and others, but picked the Spartans officially back in December after reports said he committed in August. Stallworth remains solid despite more schools showing interest. He plays tackle in high school, but being around 6-foot-2, might wind up playing guard at the next level. He is a great prospect from the top of the board that the Spartans landed.
Noah Listermann – Cincinnati (Ohio) Winton Woods
Listermann is a raw prospect as he is still relatively new to the game of football, but the Spartans are in the thick of it for him. He visited for the spring game, which came after he had received an offer. Listermann is a name thrown around in conversations about who the next Michigan State commit could be as he has spoken highly of the Spartans throughout the process. He could very well be in the class before all is said and done.
Drayton Carlberg – Minneapolis De La Salle
Carlberg has been pretty quiet about his recruitment, but he got an offer from Michigan State back on a visit earlier this spring. His coach told Allen Trieu that Carlberg loved his visit and called it "amazing," so that bodes well for the Spartans.
Quinn Oseland – Springfield (Ill.) Sacred Heart Griffin
Oseland was offered in late April, when rumors were flying that he was about to commit to Illinois. He shot those down and said he was "hyped" about the Michigan State offer. When it comes to visits, he talked Michigan State and Louisville as two of the favorites.
Rob Dowdy – Westerville (Ohio) South
Things have been quiet with Dowdy since his Michigan State offer on a visit for a basketball game in early March and said he left with a good feel for the Spartans. As an Ohio kid, he knows enough about Michigan State and, at that time, it seemed like his recruitment is going to be unfolding for a while.
James Daniels – Warren (Ohio) Harding
Daniels was offered very early by Michigan State and he is the lone center with an offer for the 2015 class. He holds offers from the likes of Ohio State, Iowa and others. With a brother at Iowa and a father that played at Ohio State, this recruitment could be interesting and those two schools could be hard to beat.
Hunter Littlejohn – Olentangy (Ohio) Liberty
Littlejohn enters the summer hoping for two offers the he doesn't have yet – Michigan State and Ohio State. If MSU offers, it very well could be a gamechanger. He will camp on Sunday in hopes of earning an offer. He holds offers from a couple Big Ten schools, as well as West Virginia.
Jack Shutack – La Grange Park (Ill.) Nazareth Academy
Shutack has been seeing his offer list grow throughout the spring and figures to see more come along. He has great size and improved his test scores, which got more schools interested. He visited for the spring game and left very impressed. He will camp at plenty of schools this summer in hopes of continuing to add offers.
Wesley French – St. Joseph (Mich.)
French is an under-the-radar prospect with a handful of offers from MAC schools, many of which came this spring. He will camp at Michigan State and is very athletic. He can play on either side of the line, as he also works on defense, and brings an interesting option to the table that the Spartans could like.
