College basketball's early signing day took place earlier this week, as did wide receiver DeAnthony Arnett's announcement. Both are part of the rundown of news in the latest recruiting roundup:â†µ
Michigan State Footballâ†µ
- Arnett, a four-star receiver from Saginaw, picked Tennessee over Michigan State, Michigan, USC and Cal. Arnett created quite the buzz on Twitter the night before his announcement, posting videos claiming he had committed and decommitted to all five schools. When his actual announcement took place, there was no fooling around, and he picked the Tennessee Volunteers, opting to leave the state of Michigan after many believed he would end up in East Lansing. â†µ
- Dallas Crawford, a three-star defensive back on Rivals and Scout (he has four stars on ESPN), committed to Michigan on Friday. Crawford is from Fort Myers, Florida, and is Michigan's 12th commit for the class of 2011. (Sammy Watkins, the No. 2 overall receiver in the nation on Scout, is teammates with Crawford and is also considering Michigan.) â†µ
Michigan State Basketballâ†µ
- Commits Branden Dawson, Brandan Kearney, Dwaun Anderson and Travis Trice signed with Michigan State earlier this week. â†µ
- Commit Trey Burke signed his letter of intent to Michigan, but Carlton Brundidge is waiting to sign his until his dad returns home from a business trip.
