The running back position has become a marquee position for the Michigan State Spartans over the past few years.
Indianapolis (Ind.) Cathedral running back Markese Stepp may have a couple of years before he graces a college field, but the Spartans are a team of high interest for the 6-foot, 205-pound sophomore.
“I’ll be going up to Michigan State to take a tour and stuff,” said Stepp. “They’ve been talking that I’m going to get an offer, but that they are just slow in the process.”
What would an offer from MSU mean to Stepp?
“It would be great as they are one of my top schools,” he said. “I would like to look at them pretty hard. I went up there for their game against Indiana and it was really nice and I loved it.”
Stepp has been paying attention to the success Spartan running backs have enjoyed and feels he’s a possible fit.
“I feel like I would do real well in their offense,” he said. “I feel I could run the ball they way they would want me to.”
As for the the next two years of high school, Stepp knows things come in time.
“I just want to continue to do my best and let things all fall in place,” he said.
Stepp already holds a handful of scholarship offers and plans to attend the Spartans next Junior Day later this month.
