Mark Dantonio and the Michigan State Spartans were able to pick up two major verbal commitments today for the class of 2015.
The Spartans, who did not have any current commits prior today in the class of 2015, were able to secure verbal commitments from four-star offensive tackle Kyonta Stallworth out of Southlake High School in Eastpointe, Michigan, as well as four-star quarterback Jayru Campbell out of Cass Technical High School in Detroit Michigan, according to the Detroit Free Press.
Both players are currently ranked among the top five players in the state of Michigan for the 2015 class and are also ranked among the top players in the Midwest.
Stallworth started off the day with his commitment early in the afternoon on MSU’s campus. Stallworth is a critical get for the Spartans due to their recent offensive line struggles and he mentioned that in his decision to commit. He had offers from Florida and UCLA among others.
Campbell was the second of the two to commit and he might lead to bigger things coming for the Spartans. He is a two-year starter and two-time state champion at quarterback for Cass Tech, a powerhouse in the state of Michigan. Their team is loaded with Division 1 recruits, so the Spartans are hoping he can convince his teammates to follow. He had offers from schools such as Alabama and Notre Dame.
This is good news and can be accredited to the recent hiring of Curtis Blackwell, who was recently hired as a recruiting coordinator after being a long time player development figure in the Detroit area. Spartan fans will hope that he is able to bring more local kids to East Lansing and keep them from Michigan and Ohio State.
