The Michigan State Spartans currently do not have a player on their roster from the state of West Virginia, but are looking for that to change. A few days ago, Michigan State extended a scholarship offer to Fairmont, West Virginia three-star defensive tackle Dante Stills. He holds additional scholarship offers from 20 schools, including Florida, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Louisville, Penn State, Miami, Tennessee, and others. Spartan Nation caught up with the highly sought after 2018 recruit to discuss his offer from the Spartans.
On Friday, Dante received some unexpected good news. “Coach Snyder, the linebackers coach, told me to call him.” he said, “and he told me he's from West Virginia also and told me that I am a great player and he offered me a scholarship from Michigan State”.
The news of his newest scholarship drew excitement from the 6’4”, 265 pound defensive linemen, as he can see his potential fit as a Spartan defensive lineman. “Going to Michigan State would make me a better defensive lineman than I'm already am. They're about to have another first round pick, Malik McDowell, and that shows me that they can make me into a player that will succeed in the NFL,” Dante explained.
It has only been a few days since Dante received his offer from Michigan State but he is already hoping to check out the school. “I haven't visited yet, so I don't know a lot about them but I would like to meet Coach Snyder, Coach Dantonio, and the whole coaching staff. I would also like to tour the campus,” he commented.
Dante Stills is currently rated a three-star defensive end by Scout. He has the ability to line up both inside and outside of the defensive line and produce at the same extremely high level. Dante would be a great addition to the Spartans’ already strong 2018 recruiting class. Stay tuned to Spartan Nation for all news regarding Michigan State Football recruiting and more.
