While he already holds three offers during the recruiting process, 2019 Iowa quarterback Max Duggan could see plenty more offers in the near future and he has been in contact with Michigan State.
The 6-foot-1 signal caller, who already has a pair of Big Ten offers from Iowa and Minnesota, recently spoke with Spartan Nation and said he’s talked with Michigan State quarterbacks coach Brad Salem and has had the opportunity to find out what the Spartans have to offer.
“I’ve only talked to coach Salem once as of right now,” he said. “He came and talked to me a little bit and we just started to build our relationship and talk to each other about what Michigan State’s offense is like, how he coaches and stuff like that and a little about their culture.”
One of the things that piques his interest when it comes to the Spartans is the track record the program has had in recent years of sending quarterbacks to the next level.
“Michigan State’s a great program and a great culture,” he said. “They’ve had a lot of good quarterbacks go through their program and into the NFL. It’s a really good program.”
Although it is early in the recruiting process for the junior-to-be, Duggan said that he appreciates hearing from different coaching staffs and being able to build a rapport with different schools, including Michigan State.
“It’s great, I love it when they come over here and talk to me and build a relationship with coaches,” he said. “
With two more full seasons of football at the high school level remaining, Duggan noted that he’s continuing to put in work on a number of different aspects in his game as his junior season at Lewis Central High School approaches.
“I’m just trying to work on it all offseason and in the season,” he said. “Trying to get bigger, faster and work on my game.
“Accuracy with my ball and being able to make plays with my feet if anything goes wrong. Maybe some parts of the game, just learning the mental aspect of the game and learning more and more about the game.”
With 2017 QB Rocky Lombardi already signed and 2018 commit Theo Day solidly in the fold for the Spartans, Mark Dantonio and QB Coach Brad Salem find themselves on a quest for that 2019 bedrock quarterback. Keep in tuned to Spartan Nation for the latest on that search!
