Are The Spartans Interested?

Detroit offensive lineman James Blair is verbally committed to Western Michigan but the Big Ten is still a possibility.

"Today, James is committed to Western Michigan," said Shelly Blair, the mother of offensive lineman James Blair.

"Michigan State and a couple of other Big Ten schools (Indiana and Minnesota) have called and gotten him all excited but nothing has happened yet but who knows.

"As of tonight he's going to sign with Western Michigan. If you call back tomorrow he could be going somewhere else. This recruiting is crazy."

Blair, a 6-foot-4, 315-pounder, from Detroit (Pershing) was a three-year varsity starter and he was named all-state in 2002.
