But the sophomore tight end out of Rochester (Mich.) Adams has created some excitement within the walls of the Duffy Daugherty Building/Skandalaris Football Center this camp, and his recently-named starting quarterback is among those who have taken notice.

Football michiganstate.247sports.com —  This is final part of Spartan Tailgates's exclusive interview with Michigan State director of college advancement and performance Curtis Blackwell.

I think what is something with all these programs, they don’t treat their coaches and staff as good as Spartans do. Michigan State fans love you for what you do. We get a five-star recruit or a two-star recruit, they are happy that we were able to get them to be a Spartan.”
