Four-star OL Kevin Jarvis picks Michigan State
Kevin Jarvis, a four-star offensive lineman from Maine South High in Park Ridge, Illinois, on Thursday committed to Michigan State’s 2017 recruiting class.
Jarvis (6-5, 324) is rated the No. 13 guard in the nation by Scout.com. He also received offers from Michigan, Florida, Auburn, Mississippi State and others.
Jarvis visited Michigan State on Tuesday and afterward told Allen Trieu of Scout.com: "Michigan State is my number one as of right now."
He decided to make it official two days later, becoming the third commitment in MSU’s 2017 class.
“I’m proud to announce that I’m officially committed to Michigan State University!” he wrote on Twitter.
“The thing that impresses most (college) coaches is his pass-blocking,” Maine South coach David Inserra told the Chicago Tribune at the end of last season. “They expect him to be a run-blocker at that size. I think they really like his feet when they watch him on film and what he can do on the inside.”
Jarvis says he can play any position along the offensive line in college.
“In college, I can play tackle with no problem, or even center if they need me,” he told the Tribune.
