Michigan State Football Recruiting: Monty Madaris Signs Letter Of Intent

Cincinnati wide receiver Monty Madaris is officially headed to Michigan State. After holding off on signing his letter of intent on National Signing Day, Madaris sent it to the Spartans at 7:23 a.m. on Thursday. Michigan State officially announced the signing shortly after with this statement from head coach Mark Dantonio (via Mike Dyer):

"Monty is an outstanding athlete who attended our camp twice. He's a big-bodied wide receiver who reminds me of B.J. Cunningham. He was one of the top players in Cincinnati in one of the most competitive conferences in the nation. Monty is the third player that we’ve recruited from Moeller ... the past two (Greg Jones, Marcus Rush) have been great ones."

With Madaris' letter of intent in, Michigan State's 2012 football recruiting class is up to 18 recruits. It's likely to remain at that number, as there are no known recruits out there who haven't decided and are still considering Michigan State.
