Michigan State football picked up a commitment on Wednesday from Kyle Kerrick, a wide receiver from Coatesville, Pennsylvania. He is the Spartans' seventh commitment for the 2012 football recruiting class.
Kerrick has only been evaluated by Rivals and Scout so far. Both sites give him three stars. Scout ranks him as the No. 72 wide receiver in the nation and notes that he caught 30 passes for 510 yards and 11 touchdowns during his junior season.
Kerrick's commitment was so sudden that Rivals doesn't even have Michigan State on his list of schools in consideration. In fact, on Rivals only Pittsburgh and West Virginia are shown to have offered Kerrick. His offer list on Scout includes Michigan State, Akron, Cincinnati, Illinois, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Temple and West Virginia.
