Michigan State Receives Verbal Commit From Big-Time Running Back
The Michigan State Spartans and head coach Mark Dantonio received some great news today when class of 2014 running back Madre London announced his verbal commitment to the Spartans.
London is a 6-foot-1, 200-pound three-star running back prospect out of high school powerhouse St. Thomas Aquinas in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He held offers from top programs across the country like Florida State, Illinois, Nebraska, Virginia and Wisconsin but decided he would take his talents north to East Lansing and play for the Spartans.
This is the 17th verbal commit for the Spartans in the class of 2014 and should be the last back taken by the Spartans in the class of 2014. The other back for the Spartans in the class of 2014 is bruiser Gerald Owens, and he and London will be great complements to each other.
When you put on the film of London, you see the type of back that Michigan State has always seemed to find over the years of their program. He has good size to him, but he also shows great burst through the line when carrying the ball.
He runs angry but is very capable of out-running his opponents, which he shows time and time again. A solid comparison to London would be former Spartan running back Edwin Baker.
The one thing you know about London is that coming from a top program he will have great coaching and should be ready right away. He still might have to redshirt due to the amount of depth the Spartans have.
