Recruiting Oulook: 2010 Secondary

Michigan State has already grabbed a commitment from one of the State's top defensive back in Detroit Renaissance corner Mylan Hicks. Now MSU has its sights set on another Detroit corner and talent from all over the USA is being considered. Here's a look at who MSU is looking at including some new names.

Taking a long look at Michigan State's recruiting boards, it seems clear that the Spartans have definite priorities to fill in the defensive line. Filling those needs will have a strong impact on the shape of the 2010 recruiting class.

GoSpartans.net takes a look at the players currently holding MSU offers and how these positions could shake out.

CORNER: Getting a commitment from arguably the top corner in the state, Detroit Renaissance star Mylan Hicks puts MSU in a comfortable position.

Now, Cass Tech star Dior Mathis appears to be warming up more and more to the idea of putting on the Green-and-White. A commitment from him might wrap up this group.

But until that happens, MSU continues to look at players including Eric Redmond, a 5-foot-9, corner from Little Rock who has blazing 4.4 speed, he will visit this week.

Also figuring high at this position are Braylon Heard from Youngstown (OH) Cardinal Mooney and Ibraheim Campbell of Philadelphia Chestnut Hill.

Also popping up on the MSU radar are Tejay Johnson of Egg Harbor, NJ and Terry Talbott's brother Terrence of Huber Heights Wayne. Highly rated Tre Boston of North Ft. Myers would also be welcomed in East Lansing.

Expect for one, maybe two more players to come from this group.

SAFETY: With a young talented group already in East Lansing, MSU appears to have a small group who are in their crosshairs with Isaiah Lewis of Indianapolis Ben Davis and James Manuel of crosstown Warren Central ranked very highly on their list.

E.J. Johnson of Cocoa, FL also holds an MSU offer and Latwan Anderson of Lakewood St. Edwards (home of hooper Delvon Roe) are super talents that would look great in an MSU uniform. Dontae Johnson of the Pennington School in New Jersey has MSU's attention as well.

The talent in this group could be the highest of any MSU is recruiting.
