At 6-foot-2, 185-pounds, Madaris impressed the Spartan coaches with his speed.
"I ran a 4.55 in the forty, which was my slowest forty this summer. I feel that I did well in the testing and well in the drills and one-on-ones."
While Monty didn't expect to get much time with any of the Spartan coaches being a member of the class of 2012 he did speak with his main recruiting coach Harlon Barnett.
"I spoke with Coach Barnett. He introduced himself to me. The family I'm living with right now knows a lot of coaches so he knows the people around me."
"Michigan State was great. I liked everything I saw, it's a lot better than a lot of the other schools I've visited so far."
With goals of studying business in college, Monty knows there is still work to be done the next two seasons at Cincinnati (Ohio) Moeller High School. Not only does he have lofty goals for his team but also himself.
"We're working to win the GCL and a State Championship. My goals are to earn 1st Team All-GCL, All-State and become an All-American."
Spartan Digest will continue to follow the recruiting path taken by Monty Madaris the next couple of years.
