Michigan State Football Recruiting: Kyle Dodson Commits To Ohio State

As it stands right now, Michigan State is on track to finish the day with the same commits that it had going into National Signing Day. On the one hand, that's not a bad thing because all of the Spartans' commits are expected to send in their letter of intent if they haven't already, but the down side is no new recruits have joined the 2012 recruiting class.

After missing out on Terrell Jackson, a defensive tackle from Columbus, Ohio, on Wednesday morning, Michigan State came up short in the recruitment for offensive tackle Kyle Dodson later in the day. The four-star recruit from Cleveland announced at a press conference Wednesday afternoon that he has chosen to attend Ohio State. Michigan State, USC and Wisconsin were Dodson's other finalists.

Dodson is a consensus four-star offensive tackle with an impressive offer list. According to Rivals, Dodson held offers from schools like Alabama, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Penn State, Pittsburgh and Purdue, in addition to the four schools that made his final list.

Missing out on Dodson is disappointing, but it isn't a colossal blow for the Spartans. They already put together a pretty strong finish by adding Monty Madaris and Demetrious Cox on Sunday and Monday, so adding Dodson would have been the icing on the cake more than anything.
