EAST LANSING - Michigan State head football coach Mark Dantonio and has staff have lined up a virtual who's who of prep stars from the State of Ohio and surrounding area who are scheduled to visit East Lansing this week.

Two players who previously committed to MSU, George White of Flint Carman-Ainsworth and Mark Dell from Farmington Hills Harrison will visit MSU to get to know the new coaching staff.

In addition, State will get a visit from C.J. Peake, one of the top safety prospects in the Midwest. Peake, a four-star standout from Trotwood-Madison talked to Dantonio and his staff when they visited the school last week.

Four-star recruit Antonio Jeremiah from Hilliard Darby, a 6-foot-5, 270-pound load at defensive tackle will also visit the campus.

Two other Ohio stars, B.J. Cunningham from Westerville South (OH) and Brian Peters of Pickerington are said to be on the verge of committing due to their involvement with the staff while they were in Cincinnati. Moving to MSU may move the two to commit while visiting this weekend.

MSU has made a move on quarterback Chazz Anderson, a run/pass threat who some liken to a "poor man's Donovon McNabb" in reference to the former Syracuse and Philadelphia Eagles standout.

While safety Anthony Smith, a four-star standout and center Mark Jackson, a three-star center have not yet set up visits to Michigan State, their teammate, defensive tackle Oren Wilson, a two-star 6-foot-0, 275-pound defensive tackle will be on campus on Saturday. The Spartans staff is trying to convince the other two Cincinnati Harmony Community (OH) stars to visit this weekend and they could join Wilson.

Adding to the visitors is Miami Gulliver middle linebacker prospect Darran Kinsey. The three-star standout is one of the most productive linebacking prospects in the nation. "I ended the year with 120 tackles, five sacks, two forced fumbles, and two recoveries," Kinsey told Scout.com

Adding to the defensive backfield visitors is corner Chris Rucker, who liked Indiana prior to this weekend's visit but that could change in a hurry thanks to the tremendous efforts of former MSU defensive back Harlon Barnett, MSU's defensive backs coach who has recruited several of the players coming in this week. Rucker is the big physical corner that teams need to cover the taller Big Ten receivers.

With the defection of two high profile offensive line recruits, MSU is bringing in big time offensive tackle Anthony Grosso, from Aberdeen Matawan Regional. At 6-foot-7, 290, Grosso has Big Ten size and ability.

This has to be MSU most exciting recruiting visit weekends in a long time. Stay tuned to GSN to keep up with all the goings on, including any commitments this weekend.
