Coach Raves About New MSU punter Bates

MSU needed someone to step in and fill the shoes of All-American punter Brandon Fields and they believe they found one in New Concord John Glenn (OH) punter Aaron Bates

EAST LANSING - MSU needed someone to step in and fill the shoes of All-American punter Brandon Fields and they believe they found one in New Concord John Glenn (OH) punter Aaron Bates

Bates told GSN that MSU seemed like the right place and the right time.

"[Coach Dantonio] pretty much told me that (the punting job) was mine to lose and that was exciting, " said Bates.

"We like him as a punter," said Coach Mark Dantonio. "He can kick off and also obviously kick field goals, but we like him as a punter. He's a three-sport athlete. He's valedictorian of his class. If you watch him he has great extension with his legs on the punting motion."

Bates says that while he has a strong leg, he knows he has some things to work on.

"I've never really had a kicking coach because I play baseball and basketball. I'm excited because (former MSU punter) Craig Jarrett is a graduate assistant and he's going to help me work on some things that I need to work on."

"Craig Jarrett watched him a little bit and had some great things to say about him as a punter," Dantonio continued.

"You look at him and you see the extension he has here as a punter. When you can put your knee to the chin like that, you have great power and great snap coming off. We're very, very excited about having Aaron."

We asked Bates was it a little intimidating to think that about punting in a high pressure environments like the "Horseshoe"in Columbus or on the road in South Bend and Ann Arbor."

"I think I can handle it," said Bates. "There's something's I know I need to work on, but I'm looking forward to it."
