MSU Wastes No Time, Offers OL Schlachter

The Spartans moved quickly yesterday to tender an offer to one of the top offensive line prospects in the state. GET INside to get the story on Jalen Schlachter.

Quickly turning the page on the 2010 recruiting class, Michigan State is moving to put a noose around all the top recruits in the states of Michigan and Ohio.

The Spartans have been busy starting on the 2011 recruiting class and have tendered another offer, this time to Corunna (MI) offensive lineman Jalen Schlachter.

The 6-foot-6 tackle already had an offer in his hip pocket from Central Michigan, but this past week he's been blowing up.

"Coach Roshar talked with me for about 20 minutes," said the junior mainstay of the Corunna offensive line. "He gave me a tour (of the Spartans training facilities and the Skandalaris building). He said 'an offer is on the table' and that he is 'looking forward to me being a Spartan.'"

He visited Michigan for their best basketball game of the season, a win over UConn, in a sport that he dabbles in, basketball where he mans the pivot for the Cavaliers.

It's been tough sledding for the Cavs since they entered the tough Capital Area Activities Conference (CAAC), they went 4-5 in their first season in the conference, and the record was a dimsal 3-9 last season.

They expect better things in Schlachter's senior season, but individually things couldn't be better for the Flint area star who got another big offer this week.

"Wisconsin also put an offer on the table," he said.

That puts him up to three so far with likely dozens more to follow. Both Michigan and Iowa are showing strong interest, so they could be players in his recruitment also.

But Michigan State isn't being left behind and continues to set the early pace, targeting players they want as Spartans now and then following up with marked interest.
