Spartans pick up their first commitment of what they hope will be many this weekend. Stay tuned to GSN to see how many verbals MSU will land this pivotal recruting weekend.

DETROIT - Michigan State has picked up their first verbal commitment of this big recruiting weekend, getting Eastern Arizona Junior College defensive end Michael Jordan to pledge to the Spartans.

Jordan, who originally played his high school football at Grand Rapids (MI) Creston high school, was one of the top junior college defensive end prospects in the nation.

It seems Jordan has been trying to play for MSU since his high school days at Cresto.

He initially attended Wayne State and then moved to Eastern Arizona. After his freshman year he contacted the Michigan State coaching staff and they liked what they saw in the 6-foot-6, 280 pounds defensive lineman who runs a 4.8-40.

Even after John L. Smith was dismissed as coach, Jordan continued to contact MSU's new staff and defensive line coach Ted Gill, who liked what he saw in the versatile Jordan.

Jordan helped lead the Gila Monsters to a 7-4 record in his sophomore season in Thatcher, AZ. will have more on Jordan's commitment in the coming hours.
