Ray Part Of Spartans Family

Aggressive and tough is how Mark Dantonio likes his football players on the field. In Arthur Ray he's found just the right mix and a player who should have a bright career in a Spartan uniform.

The recruiting trail taken by Mount Carmel High School (Chicago, IL) offensive lineman Arthur Ray is a classic tail.  Sold on the program Tom O'Brien built at Boston College, Ray found it easy to make a solid commitment to the ACC program this past summer.  But as many high school prospects have learned this year, college coaches that build successful programs are in high demand and many have found new addresses since the season ended.  O'Brien was one of these coaches who found his calling to head up another program in the ACC, North Carolina State. 

 

The move by O'Brien to NC State made Ray take a second look at his commitment while learning more about other programs who've taken an interest in his football talents.

 

"I was real comfortable with Boston College.  I really like everything they had from the coaches to the academics.  But when Coach O'Brien left I needed to take a fresh look at the different programs recruiting me."  Stated Ray on Monday afternoon.

 

On this path well traveled, Ray made a visit with O'Brien at his new ACC home and came away impressed with what he saw in Raleigh.  But while it may have been easy for Ray to leave the Midwestern city of Chicago for the East Coast city of Boston, the visit to Carolina showed Ray having a real college campus close to home was something he couldn't pass up so his parents could stay involved in his football career.   

 

Enter Mark Dantonio and Michigan State.  Like O'Brien the Spartans new head coach is very faith based and believes his football players are more then just X's and O's on the field.  The human side of developing young men into grown men has become a staple of the teams Dantonio has coached.  Ray soon learned these facts during his official visit this past weekend.

 

"Coach Dantonio is straight forward with everything he tells you.  He doesn't tell you what you want to hear, he tells you what you need to hear.  He doesn't believe in pressuring a player into making a commitment and that allowed me to take my time and enjoy my visit.  I had a great visit and really liked everything I saw from an athletics standpoint while also keeping in mind the main reason for going to college is an education." 

 

"My father and younger brother made the visit with me and while there I got a chance to meet with the people in charge of the applied engineering science program. Going to Michigan State will allow my parents to follow my career.  If I would have gone to Boston College or a North Carolina State they may have only been able to see me play one or two games a year.  Now they will be able to see many of my games at home and even some on the road."

 

Ray was quick to point out he enjoyed the recruiting process but also stated it got a little crazy at times as well.

 

"You go from having no offers and wondering who may have interest in recruiting you to one of getting a few offers and adding them over the course of time while thinking about how you're going to make your choice.  Overall I'm glad it's over with."

 

One area the Spartan staff does a great job with is making sure a player knows as many members of the coaching staff and getting the feeling their part of the family and not just another player looking to play some football.  This was no different for Ray during his visit.

 

"I had a chance to spend time with Coach Staten, Coach Enos, Coach Treadwell and Coach Roushar during my visit.  I feel like I'm part of the family now and can't wait till it's time to report and start playing."

 

Spartan fans should be very excited about this aggressive hardnosed player. 

 

"I'm aggressive and very hardnosed, I try to kill people on the field."  

 

One of the highlights of the visit came when Ray had the pleasure of meeting Spartans head basketball coach Tom Izzo.

 

"I'm a hoop fan and getting the chance to meet Coach Izzo was really neat."

 

Ray knows he's far from being a finished product on the field. 

 

"My strengths are my footwork, toughness and aggressiveness.  But I need to work on my speed and flexibility to take my game to another level."

 

Watching film of Ray it's easy to see why college coaches worked so hard in getting his commitment.  Ray reminds me of LeCharles Bentley (Ohio State – Cleveland Browns) in stature and style of play.
