The first edition of the Rivals100 came out earlier today for the 2011 football recruiting class, and Michigan State commit Lawrence Thomas is ranked No. 11.â†µ
Thomas received five stars for being ranked so high, meaning if the Rivals100 doesn't change too drastically and Thomas sticks with MSU, the Spartans will land a five-star defensive player from Detroit for the second year in a row.â†µ
Earlier this year, Detroit Southeastern defensive end William Gholston, the top player in the state of Michigan and a five-star recruit, signed with the Spartans. If Thomas does the same in February 2011, the Michigan State defense will be filled with some serious talent come this time next year.
