Appleton accomplished that in addition to catching the eye of Michigan State University assistant coach Tom Newton, who invited him to campus for a visit. The 6-foot-2, 187-pound center took the trip to East Lansing, Mich., on Monday and received a scholarship offer. Appleton didn't wait long to pull the trigger on accepting it.
