Offensive lineman Thiyo Lukusa feels prepared for his early enrollment at Michigan State.

Unlike some of his new Michigan State teammates, Thiyo Lukusa feels a little more prepared for the changes of being away from home as he's already experienced the change. Friday, Lukusa talked about finally being a Michigan State Spartan.

A move from Traverse City (Mich.) West to De Paul Catholic High School in Wayne, New Jersey has helped Michigan State Spartans early enrollee Thiyo Lukusa with making the transition from high school to college student athlete.

Friday, Lukusa along with other of the Spartans early enrollees spoke with the media and Spartan Digest has the following on the 6-foot-5, 330-pound offensive lineman that Mark Dantonio said the following about in a press release.

“We first got to know Thiyo Lukusa between his freshman and sophomore years when he competed in our summer camp,” said Dantonio.  “We followed up shortly thereafter and offered Thiyo a scholarship, and he has continued to grow and develop physically.  He has outstanding footwork that he’s helped define through his success on the basketball court.  Thiyo is a big, strong athlete who wants to be great.  Enrolling early will provide Thiyo with an opportunity to gain the necessary knowledge to compete for playing time early in his career.”
