USC, Miami, Alabama, Notre Dame, Tennessee and Michigan. Those are just some of the schools Michigan State hopes to beat out for the services of players like Mark Ingram and Nicholas Perry who were in attendance for the Spartan game against Ohio State on the hardwood Tuesday night.
The recruits sat with coach Mark Dantonio and appeared to enjoy the game, cheering the Spartans when not being debriefed about the up-and-coming Green-and-White program.
Ingram, a three-star running back prospect from Flint Southwestern whose father played at MSU, visited Alabama last weekend and has also seen interest from other Southeastern Conference teams such as Tennessee.
Perry, a four-star prospect who projects as a defensive end or possibly a linebacker, turned heads during his senior season as he lead Detroit King to a state title. USC, as well as Miami, have been recruiting Perry hard late in the game, hoping to lure him away from his home state.
If Ingram were to become a Spartan, immediate playing time at running back might not be on the horizon as MSU returns star Javon Ringer and a stable of quality backups. But with great open-field skills, Ingram could find time as a wild card athlete, or even make an impact on special teams.
Perry could contribute immediately on the defensive side of the ball, as D-ends Jonal Saint-Dic and Ervin Baldwin have graduated.
Phone calls are in, so stay tuned to GSN for more on these two and other important Spartan recruits.
