Another Strong Recruiting Class for the Spartans

Posted By David Lesmeister On Feb 2 2011 @ 2:48 pm In Michigan State | 11 Comments

As of right now, the Michigan State Spartans have signed twenty prospects. They rank #31 in the ESPN recruiting rankings and are considered a team on the cusp of breaking into the Top 25. The only teams ranked ahead of MSU in the Big Ten Conference are the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Of course it is still early and this could all change, but as of now, this MSU recruiting class looks to be one of the best in the country. Most importantly, the Spartans again signed the number one prospect in Michigan for the second year in a row, while also receiving their second ESPN top 150 recruit in as many years. Inside linebacker Lawrence Thomas (ranked #150, #8 linebacker) has the ability to come in and make an impact as a true freshman, especially considering what the Spartans lost at linebacker this past season. A huge commitment for the Spartans, as Coach Dantonio continues to build solid recruiting classes, year after year. Here is a look at the other signees:
