Camp Recap: MSU June 11 One-Day

Michigan State had commitments, players with offers and a few targets on the radar on campus Wednesday for a camp. We take a look at those players and how they performed -- and a couple names to know moving forward.

Michigan State hosted its second one-day camp of the summer Wednesday and players with offers, heavy interest and a pair of commits were on hand.

Here is a look at MSU targets and the like who put on good performances on the day:

**Most recent commit, offensive lineman Noah Listermann (Cincinnati Winton Woods), took part in camp and showed the quick feet through drills that should allow him to be a good tackle in college. He moves well laterally and keeps his hands in a good spot ahead of him. He did have a few issues with speed rushers on the edge, which is to be expected as Winton Woods rarely passes the ball so he is hardly used to having to pass block.

**Michigan State cornerback commitment Tyson Smith (Orchard Lake St Mary's) showed why he is a good fit with the Spartans. He was physical with wide receiver in press coverage, bumping and making it tough for receivers to make their first move. When they did, he stuck well downfield. Smith is a player MSU fans should be excited about arriving in East Lansing in the fall of 2015.

**Smith's teammate, 2016 athlete Daelin Hayes, played much of the time on offense, lining up out wide. He plays primarily running back and linebacker for OLSM, but showed just how good of an athlete he is running down field. MSU was his first offer, since then Ohio State, Penn State and Tennessee have joined the mix.

**To stick with the pattern of OSLM recruits, 2017 linebacker Josh Ross has gotten even bigger and is really talented. He can move downfield in coverage with a big frame, which is impressive. He could be headed for playing with his hand in the ground at some point, but right now he is just an impressive athlete to watch. He holds an MSU offer.

**The biggest buzz at the camp – especially from MSU coaches – came surrounding 2017 defensive lineman Devonte Dunn, from Grange Park (Ill.) Nazareth Academy. He showed quick feet, good agility and was a force to be reckoned with throughout the camp. A lot of coaches were paying attention to him and his name will be very much on the radar of schools soon. MSU invited him to come back to camp again later this week, but he cannot make it because of a scheduling conflict.

**2015 offensive lineman Jack Shutack made the trip up to camp for the second time in the past week. He was better this time than Sunday – and felt the same way. He has a good frame to project at the next level, but struggled early in one on ones for a couple reps. He gets knocked over a little bit too easy, but figures to continue to improve in that area.

**Another player that MSU seemed to be watching was 2016 defensive end Zander Zimmer, from Orlando Bishop Moore. I did not have the chance to watch much of him in workouts, but he was drawing some attention.

**Cass Tech 2016 lineman Michael Onwenu was in town for camp and worked out on the defensive line. He has a good frame for a tackle, but is carrying a little bit too much weight at the moment. He put on a good showing, with good burst and good use of hands. Onwenu had a good showing at the Columbus NFTC recently as an offensive lineman.

**Another name from OLSM is 2017 wide receiver K.J. Hamler. He is slight in size right now, but has scary athleticism and speed. He is going to be a weapon this year and a slot receiver recruit in the coming future.
