INKSTER - Linebacker Dwight Trammer made the move over from Oak Park to Inkster in large part because of the innovative academic programs that the suburban school is offering, but admits, he was also attracted by the outstanding results that the Vikings had on the field over the past two seasons.

Trammer visited Michigan State this weekend and watched as the Spartans fell to the Central Michigan Chippewas 29-27. He admitted, he was surprised, as most observers were by the outcome.

"Yeah, I was surprised, but that doesn't change anything. I wouldn't make my mind up over one loss," said Trammer who will be among the most sought after players in the 2011 class.

For the meantime, Trammer says, he and the MSU coaching staff are just getting a feel for each other. "I haven't really talked to any coaches about a scholarship or anything. I was just basically a visitor," he said.

"I don't think they have my tape. The coaches have told me that they like the way I play and they want to see more from me."

The loss by Michigan State hasn't been the only thing surprising this football season. The Vikings have also dropped their first two games, a result that has Trammer perplexed.

"I don't know (what's going on), we have the bye week (this week) so we're trying to figure out and get our schemes down so we can finish the season strong. I don't know what's going on but we're just trying to finish the season strong."

Trammer says, he's fit in well with the Vikings defense. "I'm fitting in good. I feel like I'm playing better than I expected. I know I'm a good player but I feel like in the games that I played I've played better than I expected."

"I don't know my full game tackle (stats) but I know I've had eight solos in each game, I don't know (how many assists or tackles for loss) that I had."

Trammer says he saw a lot to like when he watched Spartans linebacker Greg Jones wrack up double-digit tackles again on Saturday.

"He's a great player, you can't say nothing bad about him. He's a veteran, he's smart, he knows what to do. I mean I just look up to him and try to get as many pointers from him as I can and hope that I can be a player like that."

Who knows, maybe in 2011 Trammer will be in Jones shoes and wearing Green-and-White.

Trammer's next game is on the road at Lakewood St. Edwards.
