David Herron is one of the best fullback prospects in the country. Herron wasn't highly recruited at the beginning of the season because he needed to get his academics in order.

Herron buckled down and now he's become a full qualifier. David didn't waste any time in deciding where he'd play his college football.

Herron made a verbal commitment to Michigan State and coach (Brad) Lawing today. Herron is a tremendous get.

While watching film of Ohio State bound Maurice Clarett, Herron jumped off the screen and stuck out like a sore thumb. What I liked most about Herron was his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield and get yards after the catch. He's also a tremendous blocker.

Duane Long from Ohio's Future Stars had this to say about Herron.

"He's (Herron) the best fullback in Ohio." Long said. "He's also a Top 20 player in Ohio. David is great with the ball in his hands and he's also a tremendous blocker. He's a quality running back that can either play running back or fullback. He reminds me a lot of Eddie George.

Michigan State landed a super prospect that will know doubt be a cornerstone of their current recruiting class four years down the road.

Michigan State Recruiting Coordinator, Brad Lawing has an eye for talent. While an assistant at South Carolina it was Lawing who first noticed little known linebacker John Abraham.

Abraham wound up being one of South Carolina's best linebackers and he's a current All-Pro with the New York Jets.

Will Herron end up being another John Abraham? Only time will tell.

Look for the Spartans to finish up the recruiting season strong in January as super Florida prospects, Nate Harris, Nate Salley, Davin Joseph and John Wood all have Michigan State high on their short list.
