First off: Let me introduce myself. I am Will Nahikian, a current student at Michigan State University. I will be doing recruiting news for BOTRC, and I also write about Michigan State for Delanysdozen.com You can follow my twitter: @SpartanWilliam and ask any questions there.
The number one wide receiver and number one offensive guard are both still considering Michigan State. Adding either player would help solidify one of the best recruiting classes that MSU has had under Mark Dantonio. According to ESPN the Spartans currently have six 4 stars in their 2013 class. The current 2013 recruiting class consists of 14 commits; Mark Dantonio and staff are looking to add at least two more players.
The wide receiver is LaQuon Treadwell, a 6-3/195 pound talent from Crete Illinois. Treadwell is a consensus top 5 wide out through various recruiting databases and is believed to have the University of Michigan as his favorite. LaQuon is a top-notch talent; he has speed, great hands and the ability to make a play after the catch. He would be a weapon in the passing game from the get-go for Andrew Maxwell. But what are the Spartans chances at landing coveted wide receiver? Well, it has been mentioned that Michigan State has a few things going for them that interest Treadwell: The chance to play as a freshman and how close Michigan State is from his hometown. With that said, I believe Michigan State has a real chance at landing LaQuon Treadwell. No date has been set for his decision.
The offensive guard is David Dawson, a 6-4/282 pound offensive lineman from Detroit who currently attends Cass Tech. Dawson was originally committed to Michigan, but wanted to visit other school, which Michigan does not allow. Michigan could end up helping their in-state rival as Dawson has Michigan State in his new top 3 along with Wisconsin and Ohio State. David’s current teammate at Cass Tech Dennis Finley is already committed to play offensive tackle for the Spartans, which could be a factor for Dawson. Of the two recruits (Treadwell and Dawson) Dawson is the most likely to end up in Green and White. What are Michigan State’s chances at landing the highly touted guard? Very good, I think it comes down to Ohio State and Michigan State but currently MSU has to be the favorite.
