Winston Set To Join Spartan Family

Detroit Denby running back Glenn Winston is just back from his official visit to East Lansing and says he's made his decision.

DETROIT - Glenn Winston isn't a Spartan just yet, but he's confident he will be soon.

Winston just back from his official visit to East Lansing says he's made his decision and even though it's not official it's just a matter of time.

"No, I didn't commit. I can't commit until after I get this report card," said Winston who added "but they offered and all of that."

He said he promised them he would commit to Michigan State as soon as he finds out that his grades will make him eligible to attend school.

Winston said there is one big reason he likes Michigan State..."because they play Michigan," laughed Winston.

Winston said he is not a Michigan fan at all and has the same attitude that former Spartan Drew Stanton has - a loathing for the Maize-and-Blue.

He said that Michigan tried to recruit him early on when he attended their camp.

"The tried in the summer when I went to their camps and I had ran all those good times, but then through the season they just never called me again so I was like..all right."

Winston said he definitely will have something to prove when he faces Michigan in the future.

Winston said their won't be any problems with his grades of with his ACT scores. He said that Coach Dan Enos, MSU's running backs coach has been the one leading his recruitment.

"He said that they needed a power back since #30 (Jehuu Caulcrick) is leaving, they needed another physical back and even though that's not all I can do, but that's what they see me as."

"I can pound it, but that's not the only thing I can do." Winston said he knows who Caulton Ray is, but the two haven't talked but they'll be getting to know each other better as time goes on.

Winston said he expects the report card to be released in the next ten days or so and even though other schools promised him an offer once it came in, he's already made his decision.

The 6-foot-1, 215-pound back says he was hosted by new Spartan transfer Trevor Anderson and that the two hit it off well. He said he likes the campus and that after his third time in East Lansing, he was sold.

GSN will have more when Winston officially pulls the trigger. We'll put this one in the category of a soft verbal.
