Michigan State on Saturday will host the biggest group of visitors it has had on campus since the Oregon game when the Spartans take on Penn State in the final home game of the season.
The group will include three official visitors, offensive tackle Thiyo Lukusa and safety Kenney Lyke, who are both committed to the Spartans, and Hubbard (Ohio) running back George Hill, who is uncommitted, but has been to East Lansing several times this season. A one-time Ohio State commit, Hill took his first official visit to Wisconsin last weekend, but the Spartans are considered the team to beat.
Fresh off a state title game appearance, Detroit King wide receiver Donnie Corley will be in town for an unofficial visit. He announces his commitment on Dec. 8 and it is widely believed that Michigan State will be the choice on that day.
Evanston (Ill.) defensive tackle Naquan Jones, who recently decommitted from Michigan State, will attend the game. Word is, there is a possibility he will rejoin the class, although he is still slated to visit Nebraska, Florida and Ole Miss.
Ann Arbor Skyline's Daelin Hayes will return to East Lansing as an unofficial visitor after taking his official to MSU earlier in the month. Hayes, recruited as a jumbo athlete by the Spartans, will have in-home visits with his three finalists -- Ohio State, Notre Dame and Michigan State -- before making a decision in December.
Another recent Michigan State decommit, Ann Arbor Skyline junior wide receiver Hunter Rison, will also attend the game. Rison, a legacy prospect, is still heavily considering the Spartans, but stated that he felt he had made too early of a decision. He committed to Michigan State last June before his junior year.
Greater Johnstown (Pa.) junior cornerback Exree Loe is a Pittsburgh commit, but has been open to visiting other schools as he took a trip to Penn State last week. Loe does not currently hold an offer from the Spartans but has been in contact with the staff.
Members of the Spartans' 2016 class who will attend the game as unofficial visitors include Joe Bachie, Cameron Chambers, Justin Layne, Trishton Jackson, Brandon Randle, Mike Panasiuk and Matt Coghlin.
Several in-state juniors who do not yet hold Spartan offers, but are on the MSU radar and already have Division I offers, will be on hand. They include Zeeland East defensive lineman Johnathan Berghorst, Greenville tight end Keegan Cossou, Livonia Churchill cornerback Jamal Allen and Dearborn offensive lineman Mustafa Khaleefah.
One Class of 2018 prospect of note, Pinckney (Mich.) quarterback Brandon Leach, who already stands 6-foot-8 and had a good sophomore season, will be visiting.
Chambers signs financial aid agreement
Sicklerville (N.J.) Timber Creek wide receiver Cameron Chambers has signed his financial aid papers and is set to enroll at Michigan State in January. Chambers, who has been committed to Michigan State since August, joins Messiah DeWeaver, Kenney Lyke, Joe Bachie and Thiyo Lukusa as members of the 2016 class who will enroll early and take part in spring practices.
