Michigan State Football Recruiting: Deon Drake Commits

Before Dennis Finley committed to Michigan State last month, it had been a long, long time since somebody from Detroit Cass Tech decided to become a Spartan. Now, Michigan State has two Cass Tech players set to join their football program in the future. Finley was the first to commit, and Cass Tech linebacker Deon Drake, a 2014 recruit, became the second by committing to Michigan State on Sunday.

Drake is currently unrated on most sites since he is a 2014 recruit. He does already have four stars on 24/7 Sports, which ranks him fourth in the state of Michigan and sixth at his position. Nationally, he is ranked 173rd.

According to Rivals, Drake holds offers from Michigan State, Cincinnati, Iowa, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh and Syracuse.

Michigan State Football Recruiting: Byron Bullough Commits

Michigan State is off to an excellent start for its 2014 football recruiting class. After picking up a commitment from two-sport athlete Drake Harris in June, the Spartans added another recruit on Thursday when linebacker Byron Bullough verballed.

If Bullough's name sounds familiar, it's because two of his brothers currently play for Michigan State. Max Bullough is a junior linebacker and Riley Bullough is a true freshman linebacker, and now the Spartans have Byron Bullough set to join the program a couple years from now. Their dad, grandfather and uncle also played at Michigan State. Needless to say, the Bullough family has some outstanding bloodlines when it comes to producing football players.

Since he is a class of 2014 recruit, Bullough hasn't been rated yet by any of the major recruiting sites. According to Rivals, Michigan State is the only school that has offered him so far.
