Is Montae Nicholson Next Michigan State Star

ALERT...Who will be the next breakout star on the Michigan State defense? After breaking down several names, Spartan Digest tackles that question in our latest video.

Since taking over at Michigan State, Mark Dantonio and the Spartans have built their reputation and success on having one of the best defensive units in the nation.

The past two seasons have seen secondary coach Harlon Barnett coach up Darqueze Dennard and Trae Waynes into NFL first-round draft choices. Now, Barnett has another player Spartan Digest feels is set to become a major player for the Spartans defense and another possible NFL first-round draft selection when the time comes.

For Spartan Digest, sophomore safety Montae Nicholson looks ready to breakout in 2015 coming off a true freshman season that saw the Monroeville (Pa.) Gateway product play in 13 games with three starts (Nebraska, Purdue, Indiana) and lead first-year players with 31 tackles (18 solo, 13 assists) on the season.

The Spartans knew they had a special player when Nicholson arrived in East Lansing after a prep career that saw him play in the 2014 U.S. Army All-American Bowl and earn a spot as a Top 300 (No. 204) national prospect list.

After an impressive showing last season, Nicholson didn't miss a beat in the spring where he showed the ability to make the big play with multiple interceptions during the Spartans spring scrimmages.

Nicholson is not a one sport standout as he also competed on the Spartans indoor track and field team where he placed sixth in the long jump at the Big Ten Indoor Track and Field Championships with a leap of 7.23 meters.
