Michael Geiger commits to Michigan State football

Michigan State picked up a commitment from the nation's top kicker on Saturday. Toledo's Michael Geiger, who was previously committed to Boston College, decided to join the Spartans' recruiting class, and he became their 15th commit for 2013.

Geiger has three stars on Rivals and 24/7 Sports. Both sites consider him the No. 1 kicker in the nation for the 2013 class, meaning he should provide a nice boost to the Spartans' special teams when he joins the team.

According to Rivals, Geiger's only other offer is from Boston College.

MSU football recruiting: Dennis Finley commits

Demetrious Cooper wasn't the only recruit who committed to Michigan State over the weekend. The Spartans also picked up a commitment from Detroit offensive tackle Dennis Finley. His decision to commit to the Spartans is particularly notable, as he attends Cass Tech High School, which has developed a reputation for sending players with Michigan offers to Ann Arbor and players without Michigan offers out of state.

Finely is a three-star recruit on Rivals, Scout and 24/7 Sports. ESPN actually rates him as a four-star recruit and has him eighth in the state of Michigan. Rivals ranks him 27th in Michigan and 33rd at his position.

According to Rivals, Finely holds offers from Michigan State, Cincinnati, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Ohio State, Purdue, Syracuse and Wisconsin, among other schools.

Michigan State Football Recruiting: Jay Harris Commits

After Caleb Benenoch decommitted back on June 12, Michigan State was left with just six commits for its 2013 football recruiting class. The Spartans then went a week with no activity on the recruiting trail in terms of commitments. Since then, however, the Spartans have added four new commitments, including three in the last 24 hours alone.

The latest new commit for Michigan State is wide receiver Jay Harris. He is from Pennsylvania and is the second wide receiver to commit to Michigan State on Monday. Earlier in the day, Ohio wide receiver Trey Kilgore committed to MSU.

Harris is an under the radar type of prospect. He is unrated on Rivals and is a three-star recruit on Scout and 24/7 Sports. Scout ranks him 109th at wide receiver, whereas 24/7 Sports has him 91st. In the state of Pennsylvania, 24/7 Sports has Harris ranked 16th.

Harris' offer list only includes Michigan State, Temple and Old Dominion, according to 24/7 Sports.

You can now make it three commits in the last week for Michigan State. The Spartans first picked up cornerback Darian Hicks last week, and then they added tight end Dylan Chmura on Sunday. Now, on Monday, the Spartans have gained a commitment from wide receiver Trey Kilgore, who is from Cincinnati, Ohio.

Kilgore is a consensus three-star recruit. On Rivals, he is ranked 89th at his position and 51st in the state of Ohio. Scout has him lower at No. 122 at wide receiver, and 24/7 Sports has him at No. 143.

Michigan State Football Recruiting: Dylan Chmura Commits

Michigan State has now added two commits to its 2013 football recruiting class in just the last week. Back on June 20, cornerback Darian Hicks committed to MSU, and on Sunday evening, tight end Dylan Chmura committed to the Spartans. Chmura is from Wisconsin and is the son of former Green Bay Packer Mark Chmura.

Chmura hasn't been evaluated yet by any of the major recruiting sites. He is currently unrated on all of them, although that should change with him committing to MSU.

Chmura's offer list includes only Michigan State, Central Michigan and Western Michigan, according to Rivals. 24/7 Sports reports that Chmura picked up an offer from the Spartans on June 21, just days after he attended a camp at Michigan State. He was just at Wisconsin's camp on Sunday and committed to Michigan State shortly after.

Michigan State Football Recruiting: Darian Hicks Commits

Michigan State is now back to seven commits for its 2013 football recruiting class. The Spartans dropped to six last week when Caleb Benenoch decommitted, but a commitment from Ohio cornerback Darian Hicks on Wednesday night pushed the number back to seven.

Hicks, who was expected by many to commit this past weekend but waited until Wednesday, is a three-star recruit on Rivals, Scout and ESPN. 24/7 Sports has him rated as a four-star recruit and ranks him 27th at cornerback and 20th in the state of Ohio.

According to Rivals, Hicks' offer list includes Michigan State, Boston College, Cincinnati, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisville, Minnesota, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Syracuse, Virginia and West Virginia, among other schools.

Michigan State Football Recruiting: Caleb Benenoch Decommits

In a move that really surprised nobody, Texas offensive guard Caleb Benenoch decommitted from Michigan State on Tuesday night. The move wasn't surprising because Benenoch had been showing interest in other schools quite openly despite being "committed" to Michigan State.

Benenoch really started picking up interest from more schools after committing to Michigan State back in March. The extra interest from other schools made him a risk to decommit. 24/7 Sports reports that he picked up offers from Texas and Oklahoma in recent days, which likely explains the timing of his decommitment.

Michigan State now currently has six commits for 2013. The full list is below.

Michigan State Football Recruiting: Caleb Benenoch Commits

Earlier this week, Michigan State added its fifth commitment for 2013. Texas offensive guard Caleb Benenoch committed to the Spartans on Tuesday, becoming the first offensive lineman to join their 2013 football recruiting class.

Benenoch is a 6-foot-6, 321-pound guard. To say the least, he's a big man, especially when you consider he is only a junior in high school.

Rivals hasn't rated Benenoch yet, but Scout and 24/7 Sports both give him three stars. Scout has him ranked 19th at offensive guard for 2013.

According to Rivals, Benenoch holds offers from Michigan State, Kansas State, Mississippi, West Virginia and Tulane.

Michigan State Football Recruiting: R.J. Shelton Commits

Michigan State has now picked up two commitments in the last day. Ohio safety Jalyn Powell was the first to commit to MSU this weekend, and Wisconsin running back R.J. Shelton decided to join the Spartans' 2013 football recruiting class on Sunday.

Shelton, like Powell, is unrated on Rivals and Scout. Also like Powell, Shelton has three stars on 24/7 Sports. which ranks him fourth in the state of Wisconsin and 12th in the all-purpose backs category.

Rivals only shows an MSU offer for Shelton, but Scout and 24/7 Sports have three other Big Ten schools on his offer list: Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Michigan State Football Recruiting: Jalyn Powell Commits

Michigan State held a junior day event on Saturday and picked up a commitment from Ohio safety Jalyn Powell. He is commitment No. 3 for the Spartans for the class of 2013.

Powell is unrated on Rivals and Scout right now. 24/7 Sports has evaluated him and gives him three stars. That site also ranks him 39th at safety and 30th in the state of Ohio. Nationally, he is currently unrated.

None of the three recruiting sites can seem to agree on Powell's offer list. Rivals doesn't list any offers, but obviously he has one from MSU considering he is now committed. Scout actually lists offers from MSU, Michigan and West Virginia. Finally, 24/7 Sports lists an offer from only the Spartans.

In any case, Powell is now a part of Michigan State's 2013 recruiting class, joining Gerald Holmes and Jon Reschke, who committed earlier this month.

Michigan State Football Recruiting: Jon Reschke Commits

Commitment No. 2 of Michigan State's 2013 football recruiting class is linebacker Jon Reschke, who hails from Bloomfield, Michigan. Reschke committed to the Spartans on Friday, as announced on his Twitter account.

Reschke is a four-star linebacker on the three major recruiting sites that have actually handed out stars so far. The only one that hasn't is ESPN, and it lists Reschke as a player in the ESPNU 150. 24/7 Sports, which has put together rankings for 2013 already, has Reschke fifth in the state of Michigan, 16th at his position and 221st in the nation.

According to Rivals, Reschke holds offers from Michigan State and Toledo.
