On The Trail (October 1)

The insider feature is back with updates on Ricky DeBerry, Noah Turner, Isaiah Scott and more! Find out the latest inside ...

**When Ricky DeBerry announced his Top 8 schools in early August, Michigan State was left off the list. When the Atlee (Va.) linebacker announced four official visits in mid-August, again Michigan State was not among the schools.

But on Tuesday, Scout.com’s Michael Clark broke the news that DeBerry would take his fifth and final official visit to Michigan State on Nov. 8 for its game against Ohio State.

"I think it's a big that Michigan State will get an official visit,” Clark said. “He has a good relationship with the coaches and I definitely think they have shot. I also think it's good for the Spartans that his official to East Lansing will be one of the last trips he takes before he makes his decision."

DeBerry is Scout.com’s No. 3 outside linebacker and No. 25 overall player.

**Michigan State has a commitment from L.J. Scott, but his brother, Isaiah, is a highly thought of recruit as well. Scott is a senior wide receiver/cornerback for Hubbard (Ohio) and holds offers from Kentucky and Cincinnati among others.

But with the desire to play with his brother, Scout.com’s Bill Greene said he is waiting on the Spartans to an extent.

"I'm just staying patient, even though nothing has really happened yet," he explained. "Michigan State is still the place I want to be, and their coaches are working with me to make that happen. They've said it's all going to work out, and that's what I believe."

According to a source at Michigan State, the Spartans still are taking a look at Scott as a possible offer candidate in the 2015 class.

**Mundelein (Ill.) Carmel junior tight end Noah Turner will be visiting Michigan State this weekend as the Spartans are gearing up for a big recruiting weekend as Nebraska comes to town. Turner already holds Big Ten offers from Illinois and Indiana, but figures to see that list grow.

According to Scout.com’s Allen Trieu, Michigan State stopped by to see Turner earlier in the fall as well as his teammates, 2016 offensive lineman Sean Foster.

Trieu says Turner is an H-back/Fullback type kid, possibly even an eventual defensive lineman, but strong, good athlete with good hands.

**It is very early for 2017 DeWitt offensive lineman Cameron Feguer, as the underclassman has heard from just a handful of schools with mostly camp invites so far. With Michigan State in close proximity and being a school he has visited for camp twice, Feguer does hold an affinity for the Spartans.

“Michigan State has been my favorite my whole life,” Feguer said. “They are probably my favorite team right now.”

Keep an eye on Feguer moving forward as he already has good size at 6-foot-5, 280-pound to project to the next level.
