Detroit Martin Luther King High School has been a recruiting hotspot for the Michigan State Spartans in recent years. The Spartans have landed commitments from Tyriq Thompson, Keyonta Stallworth, and most recently Donnie Corley. There is another rising star from the school who the Spartans are recruiting to continue the trend. Marvin Grant is a 2019 6’1”, 195 pound defensive back for the Crusaders. Recently Marvin received an offer from in-state rival University of Michigan, but he also has his eyes set on an offer from the Spartans.
Marvin grew up a University of Michigan fan, but seeing the “No Fly Zone” at Michigan State made him recognize the Spartans are a serious option too. “I think it's a great program. Michigan State prepares you for the next level and they are a winning program,” he spoke of his impression of Michigan State.
Marvin’s other two offers come from the University of Iowa, and Toledo. Look for Michigan State to join the list in the near future. If, or when, the Spartans extend an offer, Marvin will have a lot to consider. “The offer it's coming, I just gotta be patient,” he said, “but when I do get an offer from Michigan State, I will still choose wisely.”
The rising sophomore has made it to East Lansing several times in the past, and has become pretty familiar with what Michigan State has to offer. “My visits there are always nice, I have a great time every time I’m up there. They have a very nice facility,” he spoke of his Michigan State visits. “What stands out is how far they make it each year, and how they have an consistent program.”
A scholarship from Michigan State would give Marvin a lot to think about in his recruitment. “It would be really nice, it would also give me more decisions. It's a great school and it's definitely a school i'll look out for.” Michigan State and the University of Michigan are both fantastic options in the eyes of Marvin. “There’s not much to compare about the two because they are both good programs and top schools
As of now, Marvin does not have any other visits scheduled, but will be busy on the recruiting trail during the summer.
Scout does not yet rank Marvin Grant but he figures to be one of the top ranked recruits in the state, and in the midwest.
