With National Signing Day in under a week, Michigan State (MSU) has most of its 2017 recruiting class complete and the staff is already looking ahead to future classes. On Tuesday, MSU hosted over a dozen in-state 2018, 2019, and 2020 recruits for the Spartans’ basketball game against Purdue. 2018 Utica, Michigan defensive end Henry Janeway described his visit and spoke of his recruitment to Spartan Nation after his visit.
“My visit to Michigan State was great. I got a tour of the facilities and got to listen to a presentation from Coach White. I also got a chance to talk with Coach Blackwell about the season and what's going on with my high school, Eisenhower, right now,” Henry said. “My favorite part of the tour had to be the weight room. It was unbelievable!”
Henry is already looking forward to his next visit to MSU. “The majority of my contact is from Coach Blackwell, who oversees recruiting operations. I hope to meet Coach Dantonio and other positional coaches in my next visit.”
Henry has done his research on the Spartans’ program. He commented on the attributes of MSU that stand out to him, “they take care of their athletes and make sure they are on the right track. Whether its academically, with nutrition, or even life skills, they take care of their athletes.”
Aside from his interest in MSU, Henry’s recruitment has begun to pick up lately. “I've heard from Iowa State, University of Cincinnati, and Toledo through Twitter.” He has also had a few college coaches visit him at school, as well. “I've talked to Bowling Green, Northern Illinois, and Kent State at my school recently also.”
The 6’4”, 195 pound strong-side defensive end knows when he will be back in East Lansing for additional visits. “I am planning on visiting for their spring practices. I'm really trying to get up to Michigan State as much as possible so that I can continue to build my relationships with the coaches,” Henry said.
