Mark Dantonio and his staff have deep ties to Ohio and place a heavy emphasis on recruiting the state. Since Dantonio took over the program for the 2007 season, he has signed at least four players from the Buckeye State each year, topping out at eight in both 2012 and 2016. That record is in line to be broken this cycle as nine of the 15 players committed to the Spartans in the 2018 class are from Ohio.
