Michigan State Spartans freshman Monty Madaris is battling for time at the wide receiver position at training camp. The Cincinnati Moeller product was regarded as one of the best at his position in his high school class and wants to be able to learn on the job immediately at the NCAA level, via Brian Calloway of Lansing State Journal:
"It means everything," Madaris said of the opportunity at receiver. "That's my dream. That's why I came to Michigan State is to play. Football is basically my life right now."
"We have a couple of upperclassmen and right now I'm just learning from them," Madaris said. "I've got to learn the plays. The older receivers, they really are my mentors right now with learning the offense."
Madaris has lots of competition and head coach Mark Dantonio is not tipping his hand as to which direction he's leaning just yet.
