Spartans get verbal from Harmony star

He had originally committed to Cincinnati a season ago, but might have been a non-qualifier due to not meeting certain academic standards. Rather than go that route, Wilson enrolled in Harmony and now says he has his grades up to snuff - and a new attitude to boot.

DETROIT - Defensive tackle Oren Wilson, a two-star prospect from Cincinnati Harmony Prep School, committed to the Michigan State football program.

Wilson, 6-foot-3, 275-pounds, de-committed from Cincinnati and committed to Michigan State. He had been recruited at Cincinnati by the staff of current Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio.

He had originally committed to Cincinnati a season ago, but would not have qualified due to not meeting certain academic standards. Rather than go that route, Wilson enrolled in Harmony and now says he has his grades up to snuff - and a new attitude to boot.

"I took the SAT before I came down [to Cincinnati] last year and had an 840. My GPA is now a 2.7 or 2.8."

If Wilson's GPA is at 2.5 or better he needs to score only a 800 on the SAT, which means he's in pretty good shape and should have no problems making the grade.
