Kareem commits to Michigan State

Farmington Hills Harrison defensive end becomes No. 2 for the class of 2016

Michigan State picked up a commitment from one of the top in-state juniors Sunday.

Farmington Hills Harrison defensive end Khalid Kareem committed to the Spartans over offers from Ohio State, Notre Dame, Michigan and Oregon among many others.

The 6-foot-4, 235-pound defensive end was offered by the Spartans in mid-January. He was on campus Sunday for the Michigan State-Michigan basketball game and a junior day.

“It’s a really good program,” Kareem said of MSU when he picked up the offer. “It’s a family oriented team. They’re an in-state school so I kinda know a lot about them. It’s a really good team and the school is really good too from an educational standpoint.”

He is the second commitment for Michigan State in the class of 2016 joining Timber Creek (N.J.) wide receiver Cameron Chambers.
