Football freep.com —  It's for real this time: DeAnthony Arnett can help Michigan State. The celebrated 2011 recruit from Saginaw who caught 24 passes as a Tennessee freshman that fall, then transferred to MSU and got an NCAA waiver to play right away, has six grabs in three seasons with the Spartans, including redshirting in 2013, when it was apparent that he couldn't crack the rotation.

Football btn.com —  Mark Dantonio has Michigan State on a roll. In fact, he may have the best program in the Big Ten. Michigan State has won double-digit games in four of the last five seasons, compiling a 53-14 overall record and a 32-8 Big Ten mark since 2010 with league championships in 2010 and 2013. And the Spartans have gone to bowls in each of Dantonio’s eight seasons in East Lansing, winning the last four postseason tilts.

What Spartans' head coach Mark Dantonio may not know is that Layne, a four-star recruit according to 247sports.com and an Ohio State target, is an even better teammate, said Benedictine head coach Joe Schaefer.

"He's the best football player I've ever coached in 35 years," Hradek said. "He's the kind of kid where you can verbally explain something to him and he can go out and perform whatever it is you're talking about."

Football theonlycolors.com —  Trae made waves at the Combine for this impressive 40 time, but he was almost as impressive on the bench press. Strangely, Trae fared poorly in the 20-yard shuttle, and that's caused some over-thinking which I'll cover later. The major takeaway is that Trae is big and fast, and NFL GMs tend to like big, fast dudes.

Football michiganstate.247sports.com —  As Jeremy Langford was in the middle of a running back competition in the fall of 2013, he had a consistent comment about his approach. It was all about getting the four yards at a time. That became his goal with each carry, instead of focusing on finding his way to the end zone on every play, understanding the big runs would come.

Football detroitnews.com —  Last spring, Darqueze Dennard became the first Michigan State defensive back taken in the first round of the NFL draft since Herb Adderley in 1961. It appears the Spartans won't have to wait another 50-plus years for it to happen again. Cornerback Trae Waynes is almost certain to go in the first round Thursday, with many analysts projecting him as high as No. 11 to the Vikings.

"(Melvin) Gordon and (Todd) Gurley are clearly the top backs in this draft, but Langford is a guy I really like, (and) I don't understand why we don't hear his name more,'' Gruden said. "He ran a 4.4. He gained 100 or more yards in every Big Ten film I watched. He breaks tackles, he picks up blitzes and he looks like an NFL back for sure. He is tough, he can catch, he has home run speed and I love the way they train guys at Michigan State.''
