"Recruiting has been fun," stated West. "But there comes a time where you want to get somewhere and start recruiting for your new school."
While West claims no favorite the Spartans look to be in a solid position for the 6-foot, 195-pounder.
West feels solid about what the Spartans have to offer now and in the future.
"I just talked with Coach (Harlon) Barnett the other day," said West. "Michigan State has had a top five defense the past few seasons and has been a winning program under Coach (Mark) Dantonio.
"Coach Dantonio is a defensive minded guy and has been there for a while now. So you know he's going to be there for a long time. I just love his demeanor and how he was trying to get a hold of me when my phone was off to offer me.
"Michigan State has shown me a lot of respect as they wanted me to come up to campus before they offered, but Coach Dantonio decided to do it.
"I've been around Coach (Mike) Tressel a lot as he recruited my former quarterback Tyler O'Connor a few years ago. So Michigan State was one of the first schools I talked with."
