INSIDE MSU: A Look at QB Nick Foles

"Nick Foles has all the physical attributes that you're looking for in a quarterback. He has the physical stature to go along with the arm strength to throw the ball down field effectively." --Michigan State football coach Mark Dantonio

DETROIT - Michigan State couldn't have had a better turn of events when Nick Foles decided he had enough of the politics going on with the Arizona State program.

Foles, one of the nation's top quarterback prospects (#52 by Scout.com) de-committed from ASU when new coach Dennis Erickson oversigned the position and began to look around.

Coincidentally, Michigan State, who had lost quarterback Keith Nichol to Oklahoma after the departure of John L. Smith, wanted to sign two quarterbacks to their first recruiting class.

After landing Holland Christian standout Kirk Cousins, MSU followed the re-opening of Foles and went after him. After a weekend trip to East Lansing, the Foles' family decided MSU was the place for their son, despite temperatures hovering in the teens that weekend.

State head coach Mark Dantonio couldn't have been more pleased to land Foles.

"We're extremely excited about adding Nick Foles to our 2007 recruiting class," Dantonio said. "We were fortunate to sign two of the nation's most-talented quarterbacks in this class, with Nick joining Kirk Cousins (Holland, Mich./Holland Christian High School). We anticipate Nick providing immediate competition at the quarterback position."

Foles threw for 3,296 yards and 33 touchdowns against just four interceptions as a senior while leading the Austin Westlake Chaparrals to a 12-3 record including a trip to the Class 5A Division I championship game against Southlake Carroll.

Ironically, Foles who is coming off what is sometimes termed "Drew Brees" surgery for a torn labrum, broke Brees' high school passing records, throwing for 5,658 yards and 56 TDs in his career.

Speaking of Foles stats, Dantonio admitted he was impressed.

"Nick posted some incredible passing numbers as a senior, especially when you consider that he played in a pro-style attack. The number that really jumps out at me is the four interceptions in 280 passing attempts – that's making good decisions and taking care of the football."

At 6-foot-5, 235, he has ideal size for a quarterback and is also an exceptional basketball player, averaging 15 points and 11 boards and making all-district for Westlake. An academic all-American sporting a 4.0 GPA, Foles certainly fits the bill of a guy who looks to excel at the next level.

"He accomplished great things in a very competitive high school league and environment, leading his team to the Texas big-school championship game. Nick is an intelligent football player, who also possesses great leadership skills," continued Dantonio.

"In addition, he's a great competitor, who showed his toughness by playing the last 12 games of his senior year with a significant shoulder injury. Honestly, his intangibles impress me as much as his physical tools do."

In summing up his new prospect, Dantonio said this about a player who figures to be a big part of the MSU program.

"Nick Foles has all the physical attributes that you're looking for in a quarterback. He has the physical stature to go along with the arm strength to throw the ball down field effectively."
