The Spartans are going after the undecided big fish still left in the pond and have had success landing two huge names.
Adrian, MI. tight end Kellen Freeman-Davis and SirDarean Adams of Bradenton, FL. Bayshore have both committed, raising the Spartans to 20 verbals.
The commitment of Adams stunned the Miami Hurricanes who expected the talented wide receiver to immediately step into their corps. Instead, Adams will be catching passes in the Big Ten.
"I wanted to play for coach Smith because he is so much like my coach here (Bayshore High head coach Raymond Woodie)," Adams said. "Coach Woodie is like a father to all his players and is a tough disciplinarian, which I like. I think coach Smith is exactly the same."
The 6-2", 215-pounder is the top catch for the Spartans in this season recruting battles and is expected to gain playing time as a true freshman.
"I chose Michigan State because they need help and I want to be the one who can take them over the hump," Adams said. "They throw the ball a lot and I think I have a chance to be a starter next season." Adams is also a talented basketball star who may get a chance to help Tom Izzo's bunch.
Freeman-Davis, rated among the top tight ends in America chose the Spartans over Notre Dame and Michigan, making his commitment another coup for the Green and White.
MSU rescinded their offer to Cincinnati standout pass rusher Nii Adjei Oninku who had committed to Michigan State not realizing that the Spartans were no longer offering him a full ride to East Lansing.
MSU is chasing several high profile targets to end the recruiting year including Eugene Monroe, an offensive tackle from Plainfield, N.J., who is high on the Spartans list. The 6-5, 316-pound Monroe said he already has several Division I scholarship offers, from schools including Maryland, Michigan State, Iowa, Boston College and Rutgers.
The Spartans are after heralded wide receiver Del Roberts of Godby High School in Tallahassee, Fla. Roberts comes from the same school that sent receivers Marcus Clayton and Landel Bembo to Syracuse. He has offers from North Carolina, Iowa, Nebraska, Iowa State, Louisville and Michigan State.
