Michigan State Football Recruiting: Top Wideout Monty Madaris Commits

Benjamin HermanCorrespondent IIJanuary 30, 2012

With only two days until National Signing Day, the Michigan State Spartans now have 17 confirmed commitments for the class of 2012.

The most recent high school athlete to pledge his allegiance to Michigan State is wide receiver Monty Madaris, out of Moeller High School in Cincinnati, Ohio, according to Spartanmag.com. 

Madaris is a 3-star recruit, and Rivals.com ranks him slightly higher coming out of high school in Ohio than the departing B.J. Cunningham.

Madaris is 6'2" and 190 pounds. Watching film of Madaris reveals a lightning-quick wideout with great vision. His quick feet allow him to make sharp cuts and many deceptive changes of direction, including quick slants, underneath drags and even taking snaps from the wildcat formation.

The Spartans can pair Madaris with previous 4-star receiving recruit Aaron Burbridge to have a ferocious freshman one-two punch at the wideout position.

According to Rivals.com, the Spartans' recruiting class for 2012 has moved up to 45th overall. Michigan State's class is currently ranked ahead of Big Ten rivals Penn State and Wisconsin, but behind Iowa, Purdue, Michigan and Ohio State.

Expect the Spartans' overall recruiting numbers and ranking to change throughout the next 48 hours as we inch closer to National Signing Day.
