East Lansing – National Signing Day is a little more than a week away and Michigan State is looking to add at least another defensive lineman to the 2016 class.

One of its top targets was on campus over the weekend and the Spartans made a good impression on Prince Sammons of Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy. The four-star defensive end was expected to be visited by Michigan State coaches on Tuesday.

Sammons’ father, Brandon, told Dave Berk of that the visit made a positive impact on his son.

“It sounded like the visit went really well,” Brandon Sammons told Berk. “So we’ll see where it goes from there.

“The kids, it seemed like he really fit in well. Maybe that was his ‘aha’ moment, too. So he’s going to take his last visit and make sure he checks everything out and hopefully have his decision ready to go.”

Sammons (6-foot-6, 260 pounds) is scheduled to visit Auburn this weekend and is also considering Oregon and Duke. Scout ranks him as the No. 24 defensive end in the nation and the No. 189 player overall for 2016. lists Sammons as the No. 20 defensive end nationally and the 14th-best player in the state of Ohio.
