Michigan State has decided to bring some late drama to the recruitment of Cass Tech’s Michael Onwenu, a four-star offensive lineman, who committed to Michigan last June.

Onwenu, who made an official visit to Michigan during the past weekend, early Monday on Twitter revealed that the Spartans had offered him. And 247Sports reports he plans to take a visit to MSU this weekend. Michigan State is making the late push because it needs offensive line help.

During the recent U.S. Army All-American game, Onwenu told he’s looking forward to his Michigan career.

“I’m really excited,” Onwenu told Scout. “Especially after the (Citrus) bowl game and everything. They had a great year. I watched the whole game (a 41-7 victory over Florida) from the beginning to the end. It was great.”

Michigan currently has the nation’s No. 2-ranked recruiting class according to the 247Sports composite rankings.

Meanwhile, David Long, a four-star cornerback from Loyola in Los Angeles, will announce Thursday at 6 p.m. on ESPNU whether he will commit to Michigan or Washington.

Michigan tight ends coach Jay Harbaugh took to Twitter on Monday and cleverly worded a Tweet saying he has a “LONG flight this morning – important business out west!” According to Wolverine247, Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh is schedule to visit the 6-foot, 175-pound Long on Wednesday.
