JOHN YOUBOTY - The Huskers are hot after Youboty after losing five players to de-commitment this month. Youboty basically eliminated Michigan State after this visit so no need wasting pixels talking anymore about this player.
JACQUIES SMITH, CLIFF OAKS HS, DALLAS, TX - The Cliff Oak HS end has tripped all over the Plains and Midwest and after his visit to Nebraska they seem to lead for his services. Still MSU is in the hunt but these seem like long odds for one of the few top-100 players in the state of Texas who's still uncommitted.
CAMERON JUDE, MANCHESTER HS, MIDLOTHIAN, VA- This player flew under the radar in many circles but not that of Michigan State. After recording 89 tackles and 10 1/2 sacks, MSU sees him as a big time rush end in the same mold as Ervin Baldwin.
NICK PERRY, KING HS, DETROIT, MI - The absolute prize of recruiting season hands down. MSU could have offered and gotten lesser ends, but they are holding one scholarship for Perry until the day he tells them "no". They view Perry as a true "field-tilter" - a guy who can put a defense on his back and shut down an offense and they want him badly.
TRE BISHOP AIRPORT HS, CARLETON, MI - We have been unable to contact Bishop to find out what the coaching staff is telling him and what position he's in. His coach has not immediately returned calls.
RYAN JUDE MANCHESTER HS, MIDLOTHIAN, VA - He is in the position of waiting to see who accepts an MSU offer and who doesn't. MSU is going to take two of these players and right now, they'd love it to be Nick Perry and Jacquies Smith, but if not Ryan Jude could get an offer.
