Michigan State may be looking for a starting quarterback this season but they will likely remain with rising senior Andrew Maxwell come fall. The junior quarterback had a tough go of things in his first season as the starter for the Spartans, completing just over 50 percent of his passes.
While it looks like the Spartans will ride out the roller coaster that is Andrew Maxwell, they are already looking forward to future quarterback recruits. The Spartans will host a duo of quarterbacks from the 2014 recruiting class before the end of March.
Head coach Mark Dantonio has been a master at recruiting quarterbacks, sending two straight to the NFL and bringing in a mess of four-stars.
Damion Terry is from the class of 2013 and one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks in the entire class. The quarterback commit from the year before was Tyler O’Connor, a four-star pro-style quarterback that could easily fight for a starting spot.
The 2014 class is filled with top-Spartan targets at the quarterback position and two of them will be in East Lansing in the next couple of weeks.
Chris Durkin, a three-star prospect from Ohio, is expected to make a visit next weekend to help in his decision-making process. DeShone Kizer is the other quarterback planning a visit by the end of the month. Kizer is a talented four-star dual threat from Toledo, Ohio, that could be the Spartans’ only quarterback commit for the 2014 class.
The Spartans are looking to sign just one quarterback in the class even though four were offered a scholarship. The first to commit would be the one that MSU settles with.
