A long list of programs have offered Chris Hart and the list keeps on growing. This week, Hart added offers from Michigan State, Iowa, and Minnesota. The Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas standout is especially excited about the Spartans offer in part because his teammate, Madre London, just signed there.
"Madre told me to give them a call, he told me to watch out because they were on the verge of offering me," Hart said."I called them and (offensive line coach) coach (Mark) Staten offered me a scholarship."
The 6-foot-3, 225-pound heard a lot of great things from Staten about his game and what the MSU staff sees in him.
"He told me I'm a very physical player and he likes how I work in the weight room. He said he would like me to bring that to Michigan State," Hart said.
The Spartan program stands out to Hart for several reasons. Not only because his former teammate will be there, but because of the solid defense.
"They very much have my interest. When they first grabbed Madre, they had my interest. Especially with the defense, it really made me want to go there," Hart said."I like their secondary because their secondary is able to back up if any of the linebackers or the d-linemen miss tackles, they're there to make the plays."
London has shared a lot of great things about the Michigan State program with Hart as well.
"Madre also told me how good of a program it was and when he visited, how it was. He said that's the place to be because they just won the Rose Bowl," he said.
"I know most definitely I'm going to take an official visit there sometime during the season."
Hart also hopes to make it to Michigan State this summer. Cincinnati, South Florida, and Illinois are some other schools on his potential summer visit list. He'll visit Georgia Tech this weekend with his teammate Tyson Cisrow.
"I think they're going to offer me when I go up there," Hart said.
Hart plans to take his time with a commitment.
"I'll make a final decision after all my visits," he said.
