It was late in the first half of a playoff game last fall and Euclid (Ohio) High School had a comfortable lead with the ball deep in its own territory. The plan was simple – run the ball and kill some clock before heading into the locker room. Eleven seconds and 92 yards later – after giving 11 defenders a look at the No. 42 stitched to the back of his jersey – Brandon Wright was celebrating with teammates in the end zone.

In an era of year-round coverage, professionally crafted commitment videos and the opportunity for prospects to be praised and courted by fan bases from coast to coast with the click of a button, Michigan State’s approach to recruiting under head coach Mark Dantonio almost doesn’t make sense. But it clearly works.

“They’ve had some spring games where a couple of guys will commit or around (Michigan State’s summer prospect camps) they’ll sometimes have a couple of guys commit, but I can’t remember this volume and I certainly can’t remember when the guys where as highly-ranked as some of these guys are,” said Allen Trieu, Midwest recruiting analyst for 247Sports. “It’s fairly unprecedented, not just in numbers but I think in the level of talent as well.”

There is something significant going on with Michigan State’s 2019 football recruiting class: It’s filling up. Like, by the hour.  Forget recruiting rankings for a moment — MSU is doing well, though not spectacular on that front. More importantly: Commitments you get this early are usually your top targets. Kids who were Plan A.

“I didn’t like recruiting because coaches lied to me. They did stuff that wasn’t ever going to happen. Places like Ohio State had coaches that told me, ‘You’ll come in and play a ton as a freshman.’ When I was at USC, coaches walked around calling me ‘Big Daddy’ and they were grabbing juice for me. I’m used to doing that myself. My grandma was there and I was getting our food and drinks, but the coaches were trying to do it for us.
