"I was being recruited by Coach [Mike] Tressel," said Rhoades of his recruitment by the staff when they were at Cincinnati. But he said since the coaching staff moved to Michigan State "they have not contacted me."
The three-star prospect spoke highly of the Michigan State program which he believes is on the rise.
"I would love to hear from them," said Rhoades. "With Coach "D" over there, I'm very interested in them." He reports that he runs a 4.5-40 time and most schools are recruiting him as either an edge pass rusher or as an outside linebacker.
With the MSU coaching staff busy criss-crossing the country in search of recruiting talent, it is likely only a matter of time before MSU's staff catches up with the likeable Rhoades to see if he's the kind of player who deserves to wear the Green-and-White.
