MSU lands four-star defensive tackle Craig Evans

Michigan State picked up a big late addition to its 2014 recruiting class.

Sun Prairie, Wis., defensive tackle Craig Evans announced on Twitter on Monday night that he was committed to Michigan State.


Evans, who was formerly committed to Wisconsin, is rated a four-star prospect by recruiting services Rivals.com. Scout.com and ESPN. He is the fifth defensive lineman in MSU’s 2014 class, joining Chicago Mount Carmel tackle Enoch Smith, Clarkston tackle David Beedle, Columbus (Ohio) Walnut Ridge end Robert Bowers and Montclair (N.J.) end Darius Slade.

The Spartans’ 2014 class now has 21 verbal commitments. Players can officially sign Wednesday.

    Any thoughts on the spin coming out of Wisconsin (fans not the University)? Lots of talk that Wisconsin backed away due to academics or other issues. Truth to this or just their way of spinning the loss of a recruit to a conference rival?

    Either way, welcome to MSU Craig Evans! Those that come here will be champions

      Story in Milwaukee paper covering this story this morning. Emphasis was academics, ie would not qualify at UW. Sounds like sour grapes being ditched by a quality player in UW’s back yard – literally. Welcome Craig Evens to Spartan Nation.

    We don’t care how many ‘stars’ someone has-we only care about the assessment by the coaching staff of the candidate being able to come in and fit with the program, including academics. State has shown they have excellent skills at identifying the right talent and then developing them. And its getting noticed by others.

    on a related note, this malik mcdowell and his helicopter parents look like nothing but trouble to me. let the kid go to florida state. we don’t need him and i don’t want any part of him or his marcus taylor like parents.
