Langley set for Michigan State visit

The senior has a busy schedule ahead of him the next few weeks, making official visits for a straight month to a number of programs. On Saturday, Langley was in town for the Florida-Tennessee nationally televised game.

Donald Langley is one of the brightest recruiting prospects in the country right now out of Seneca Valley High School in Maryland. At 6-foot-2, 288, the defensive line standout has over 40 scholarship offers on the table right now from various schools around the country. "I just got an offer from Oklahoma yesterday," Langley indicated. Among the schools hot on his trail right now include Connecticut, Penn State, Maryland, Syracuse, Virginia, and Michigan State.

The senior has a busy schedule ahead of him the next few weeks, making official visits for a straight month to a number of programs. On Saturday, Langley was in town for the Florida-Tennessee nationally televised game. He plans to make his official visit to MSU next weekend when the Spartans take on Notre Dame's Fighting Irish.

While many of the schools recruiting Langley are located near his east coast state of Maryland, Langley considers playing at a school so far away to be as a welcome experience. "It would be an exciting challenge to play either way," Langley said. "Michigan State is not as close, but just as far (as some other schools)."

Langley was able to attend Michigan State's camp, and he is confident that the coaches he played for were impressed with his performance. "They saw me at one of my camps, at the Nike camp, when I got defensive MVP," Langley said. "I met with their defensive line coach (Derrick Jackson)," he said. "They have some nice people; that's what made me excited about them."

He was impressed by the personal touch of defensive line coach Derrick Jackson. "I thought that he was a heck of a coach, because he cares about the players and things like that," Langley said. "I like the defense they run." He said he wasn't able to talk to defensive coordinator Chris Smeland, but told GSN that he knew that he had seen some of his game film tapes.

As far as making a decision, he said that his desire is to make one now too far down the line. "I prepared to make a commitment in the next few weeks," Langley said. Already in Knoxville this weekend, he plans to follow that up with MSU next weekend. "Then it is on to Texas A&M for the Texas Tech game the week after that," Langley said.
