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.
Proud to say that I will be a MSU SPARTAN!!— Rj Shelton Jr. (@RJ_Shelton) February 26, 2012
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.
