New Michigan State Spartan wide receiver Donnie Corley is finally settling in at his new home after a whirlwind recruiting process.

Not making his college decision known until the U.S. Army All-American Bowl gave standout wide receiver Donnie Corley little time to enjoy the relief from the constant pulling of the recruiting process. An early enrollee at Michigan State, Corely is now able to enjoy not having to answer questions about where he’ll be going. Spartan Digest spoke with Corley on Friday.

With the talent to play on both sides of the ball, Donnie Corley was a major prize for Michigan State Spartans head coach Mark Dantonio a little over a week ago.  Now one week into his life as a college student-athlete, Corely is starting to enjoy the fact the recruiting process is behind him and his football future is ahead of him.

Now with his commitment out of the way and his feet planted on campus, Corely continues working on bringing another big time recruit the Spartans way.  

Corley talks about several different aspects of his recruitment as well as his future as a Spartan.

What did Dantonio say about one of his prized recruits?

“Donnie Corely is a tremendous athletes, with outstanding speed, quickness and agility,” said Dantonio in a press release.  “Donnie has incredible instincts for the football plus the ball skills to match.  At 6-foot-3, his height gives him an advantage against most opponents, and he definitely possesses the speed to pull away from defenders.  His recent commitment qualifies this receiving class as possibly the nation’s best.  Donnie also possesses outstanding cornerback skills, so our long-term plans include utilizing him on both sides of the football.”
