Michigan State football will be hosting yet another high profile recruit next week as Dante McClellan will be in town.

Yet another high profile recruit is heading to East Lansing next weekend. Feb. 3 is the first Junior Day that Jonathan Smith is hosting with Michigan State football since becoming head coach, and it is slowly turning into a massive event.

Many recruits from the state of Michigan as well as the surrounding Midwest states are already planning on coming, and one more talented player just announced that he will be attending as well.

Meet four-star linebacker Dante McClellan

Dante McClellan is a four-star linebacker from Canton, Ohio.

Ohio is always the Midwest state with some of the most talented recruits, and Dante fits right in. According to 247Sports Composite rankings, he is the No. 274 player in the class and the No. 28 player at his position. He is also the No. 11 player in Ohio which is very impressive considering all the talent that comes from that state.

A lot of Midwest schools have also offered Dante including Minnesota, Louisville, Tennessee, Rutgers, and Virginia Tech. USC has even offered McClellan all the way from California. But Kentucky stands out right now as they are the only team “warm” on his 247Sports recruiting profile.

Why I think MSU has a good chance

It’s still early in his recruitment, but I think Michigan State stands a decent chance at winning it right now. The Spartans only offered him on Jan. 24 and only one day later he announced he has already planned a visit to East Lansing. This visit is also only about a week since he got the MSU offer as well. That tells me that he’s ecstatic about MSU’s offer and likely has the Spartans near the top of his list.

We likely will find out more about his recruitment after his visit next weekend. There aren’t any indications that McClellan wants to commit soon, so knocking this visit out of the park is the top priority right now.
