" the fact he was recruited by Michigan State defensive backs coach Harlon Barnett along with quarterbacks coach Brad Salem indicates he is of great caliber."

How? Who (aside from maybe Dennard, if he is in fact a 1st round pick) have these 2 coaches recruited that indicate they are able to select players of "great caliber"?

I think we missed an opportunity here. This kid got hurt last year and played safety for the second half of the season. He never defended drake Harris in the fall. Looking at his sophomore tape and the first half of last season, this kid can play! He has a 41 inch vertical leap and runs 4:46. I hope he doesn't pan out but I'm a little concerned that this is gonna be an issue.

The comments in that post are great. Sparty fans go on and on about how rankings don't matter, but at the same time say that are putting together a greate class this year because everyone, aside from this guy, is ranked a 4* by at least one recruiting service. Just great stuff.

I'm all for ripping on MSU when they deserve it, but given Dantonio's track record with finding sleepers on defense, I wouldn't mock any MSU recruit on defense while he's there.

Wait, where was the first steal ? Or who was the first steal ? How does a two star become a steal unless your competing with the MAC? I just can't figure out, who is stealing what and from whom are they stealing from in this article. According to this article all I can tell about this kid is that he is a sleeper I guess. So if U of M passes on a prospect and he chooses the Green and White that makes it a steal maybe. I just don't get it.

when referencing how MSU is turning 2 and 3 stars into all-conference guys as if football was invented in 2008. Remember when MSU mainly got 2 and 3 star guys for the previous 100 years before then? How did that go? Oh not well, then yeah you should keep focusing on 2008-2011
