Mayers has great experience at Michigan State

Richmond (Va.) Heritage wide receiver made camp stop this summer, hopes to be back in East Lansing soon for a visit.

Sylvester Mayers made a pair of moves heading into this season.

The junior wide receiver switched positions from running back as he moved from Glen Allen to Richmond (Va.) Hermitage heading into this season.

”They work me at slot,” he said. “I feel like it’s more my spot now and makes me more versatile.”

The 6-foot-6, 150-pound Mayers has seen his recruitment continue at a good pace at the same time.

“I have one offer and it’s from Cincinnati,” he said. “I’m just trying to build from there.”

One of Mayers’ stops this summer was East Lansing, Mich., as he visited Michigan State for camp. He said he enjoyed everything about the visit from the campus to the facilities.

“Honestly, just going to Michigan State, that was by far the whole experience was one of the best college experiences for me,” he said.

The feedback was solid, as the Spartans coaches said they would be keeping an on eye on Mayers and wanted to see more film after liking what they saw.

He noticed at camp how the coaches treat the players at Michigan State – something they told him about – but he also likes what he sees from the Spartans on Saturdays in games.

“I like to see how hyped up everyone can get and how hard they play, how well they play and the game atmosphere and seeing how they deal with it all,” he said. “Even if they don’t win, just seeing how hard the fight throughout the game.”

Now, he hopes to get back to East Lansing for a visit this fall.

“I want to be able to make it the Michigan State vs. Michigan game,” he said. “It will depend on how the schedule is for us because that’s a far drive. We are looking at that.

”I was at a North Carolina game the week before last. I am just trying to see what places I can get to based off my schedule right now.”

He also has been hearing from plenty of schools this fall.

“I have been hearing from Michigan State, Kansas State, Nebraska, Indiana, Duke, Boston College, North Carolina, Virginia Tech and Clemson,” he said.
