Mike Sadler: "Dantonio Just Got Another Son"

"Absolutely - its definitely like a family atmosphere there. When I committed, it was almost like (Coach) Dantonio was getting another son. [I know] he's going to treat me like any parent would want their son to be treated. Obviously they do things the right way and it shows."--Michigan State punter Mike Sadler.

GRAND RAPIDS - Punter Mike Sadler committed to Michigan State earlier today. Sadler was recruited by several top programs including Alabama, LSU, Wisconsin, Arizona State and many others.

"It was definitely a journey," said Sadler. "It had its highs and lows, but looking back on it, I'm really glad that I got to go through it. Especially seeing all these schools and seeing what they had to offer."

He said that while he made his unofficial visits, he heard from a lot of people telling him what to do.

"Everybody is pulling you in their own direction you just have to keep your head straight and know where you want to go, but it's been a really good experience," he said.

Sadler said it wasn't just recruiting coaches that were pulling him in different directions. "[It was] the recruiters mostly, but obviously there's always going to be people who tell you to go to certain places. You've got to put that aside and go where your heart tells you.", he said.

The star recruit said in the end, it just came down to the way he felt. "You know it was really my gut feeling. Everything kind of factored in the coaching staff was amazing, the people here were great, it's my own backyard. But I just had a gut feeling all the time and I finally followed it."

Sadler said the coaching staff laid out a scenario where he would come into the program and redshirt his first year, when current Spartan punter Aaron Bates would be a senior. Then he would have four years - beginning as a redshirt freshman to kick for the Spartans.

He said he's looking forward to teaming with incoming Troy, MI freshman Kevin Muma and depending on the situation he could assist with kickoff duties if asked.

But what really turned the trick was the atmosphere that Sadler felt when he was in East Lansing.

"Absolutely its definitely like a family atmosphere there. When I committed, it was almost like (Coach) Dantonio was getting another son. [I know] he's going to treat me like any parent would want their son to be treated. Obviously they do things the right way and it shows."

How did his family, especially his parents feel about his decision?

"They were thrilled. It really helps them with me being so close. They would have supported me regardless of where I chose but they're really happy I chose MSU."

The senior punter said the fact that he has so many friends and former schoolmates who attend MSU was a strong factor in his decision.

"It made it a lot more difficult (to look around). Who wouldn't want to play in their own backyard with 80,000 people [watching]?. That just made it a whole lot harder (to look around), but when I dug a little deeper, I finally realized that this is the place for me."

He said a conversation with the head coach sealed the deal.

"I talked to Coach Dantonio last weekend, and I don't even remember what we said in that conversation, but when I hung up the phone, my mind was set right then.

"I just decided to wait a few days to make sure that I wasn't going to change my mind or anything, that I felt comfortable with it. I wasn't going to do anything different so I called him up this morning."
