While 2018 quarterback Theo Day’s future is cemented as he committed to Michigan State back in February, that hasn’t slowed down the 6-foot-5 signal caller out of Dearborn Divine Child high school in Michigan. Even with a recent SEC offer from Ole Miss, he is solidly committed to MSU and working to improve!
He is continuing to take part in camps, most recently at the Under Armour All American Camp. Day told Spartan Nation that he’s simply driven by competition as he continues to keep improving his game
“Every week, no matter what event you’re at, there’s going to be new competition,” he said. “I just want to go against the best and show them that I’m one of the best in the country.”
While partaking in camps across the Midwest, Day has become one of Michigan State’s most fervent recruiters, reaching out to other prospects the Spartans have targeted with the hopes of convincing them to join him in East Lansing.
“It’s my job to make this class one of the better ones under coach Dantonio,” he said. “So that’s what I’m going to try and do and I’m going to do the best I can.”
Day committed to Michigan State at the end of February, choosing to the Spartans over offers from Minnesota, Kentucky and Missouri along with several other offers.
Day said he’s excited to be a part of Michigan State’s 2018 recruiting class, citing the Spartans’ already strong group of commitments and recent success.
“It’s a great feeling,” he said. “Having a spot in our recruiting class and being able to be a part of a team, a college program, especially one that’s had that much success, it’s great.”
The 4-star signal caller last visited Michigan State for last month’s spring game and is more than willing to make another visit to East Lansing with the goal of helping recruit more top targets on their upcoming visits.
“I’m only an hour and 15 minutes away, so I can make the trip any time,” he said. “If some big time recruits are going to be up there, I have no problem going up there.”
As he gears up for his senior season at Divine Child, Day noted that he’s still working to improve on different areas of his game, including his footwork.
Day also discussed the impact his family and his upbringing have had on his life as he prepares for his final year of high school before moving on to college.
“I go to a catholic school, I’ve gone to catholic school all my life,” he said. “I’m from a nice catholic family, my mom really instills that as a part of our life, it’s come all of the way down from my grandma, she started it with my mom. Character is a huge part of life. It’s what people are going to remember you for.”
