Hardy Ready For Spartan Visit?

Scout.com 4-star safety prospect Eilar Hardy knows a lot more about the Spartans then people think. But while it would be easy for Hardy to just sit back on the information he has, he knows he wants to take a first hand look.

The recruiting of Eilar Hardy is going along real smooth for the Pickerington (Ohio) Central defensive back prospect.

At 6-foot-0, 170-pounds, Hardy is in high demand and will soon see if his former teammate Patrick White is telling him the truth about the Spartans.

"I know Michigan State is a great program and they are a program that is going to do some great things in the next couple of years. One of my former teammates (Patrick White) is always telling me how great the coaches are and how good things are up in East Lansing."

While Hardy is projected as a safety, some program feels he could also line up as a corner. Have the Spartans given any indication as to where they see him?

"When I talk with Patrick he says the coaches talk about me a lot and that they could see me be a corner or a safety. It doesn't really matter to me as long as I'm helping the team win."

As for a visit with the Spartans?

"I'm still trying to make it out to some schools for a practice or their spring game. I'm planning on going to Michigan State in the next couple of weeks for a practice. I'm not sure what day yet but I know we're going to visit. We've not had a chance to go up there but we're going to make sure we get up there."

For Hardy his offer list continues to grow. While most kids would be overwhelmed with so many offers he's been able to keep it in stride with the help of his family. He also has a tie to head Coach Mark Dantonio and the Spartans as he has an older brother who played at MSU for Dantonio when the head coach was an assistant several years ago.
