Spartan Day yields one commitment & nearly another

EAST LANSING - On a day in which Mark Dantonio referred to his latest staff addition as a "game-changer," Michigan State capitalized on a groundbreaking recruiting day with one major commitment and a "90 percent" pledge from another.

With Curtis Blackwell overseeing the first major recruiting visitation event since coming aboard as a key Michigan State's recruiting aide last week, the Spartans gained a commitment from Detroit Cass Tech QB Jayru Campbell and a near-commitment from St. Clair Shores Lakeshore lineman Kyonta Stallworth.

Both players are expected to be ranked among the top six players in Michigan for 2015, and will receive strong consideration for national Top 250 and four-star status.

Stallworth said internet reports of a full commitment to Michigan State are premature.

"No, no, no, no," Stallworth said, when informed that he is being reported as a commitment on Internet web sites. "I told him (another reporter) that I was going to tell him if I did (commit). But I haven't."
