Spartans looking closely at Moorman

One of the top recruits in the State of Michigan for the class of 2015 will be offensive tackle prospect David Moorman of Northville High School. SpartanMag.com was able to catch up with the 6-foot-6, 285-pound prospect and got the latest details on his recruitment. Find out more.

Head Coach Mark Dantonio and the Michigan State staff are being very aggressive when it comes to evaluating recruits for the class of 2015. Moorman is one of the players that the Spartans have high on the recruiting board and he could receive a Michigan State scholarship offer in the future.

Moorman just finished up a solid junior campaign for Northville High School. His play is a big reason why the Mustangs finished the season 8-1. Northville lost in the first round of the playoffs to Detroit Catholic Central.

We spoke with Moorman about how recruiting is going now that his season is going.

"The recruiting process is going really well," he said. "I really enjoy going on visits and I am just having a good time experiencing the process in general. I have 3 scholarship offers right now from Eastern Michigan, Central Michigan and Western Michigan. The other schools tha are really interested in me are Michigan State, University of Michigan, Illinois, Rutgers, Nebraska, Toledo and Ball State."

Michigan State will graduate a total of 8 offensive linemen over the next two years. Replenishing the depth as well as finding the next group of players that can keep the Spartans challenging for the Big Ten title is key for 2014 and 2015.

Moorman has made several visits to schools this past simmer and fall. He was in Ann Arbor this past weekend and the week befreo he wa sin East lansing. He has been to Michigan State seval times and is starting to develop strong rapport with the coaching staff. We asked him abiout his thoughts on Michigan Statet.

"I have a good relationship with all of the coaches at Michigan State University," Moorman said. "They have told me that they like me a lot and I really like the way they run the program there. They really appreciate their players and you can just tell they will do anything to win."

As far as when he plans on making his coleg decision, Moorman at this point is not in a hurry. He wants to continue to visit schools and learn more about each individual 0-rogram. He also wanst to see what schools come through with scholarship offers. Do not be surprisd if one he receiover his first BCS offer that several others could follow right behind. We aske Moorman what he is focusing on now that his season is complete.

"This offseason I am just focusing on getting bigger and stronger and continue to stay athletic. When it comes to choosing a school I am looking for a great university that has a really good business school. I also want to attend a school that has a good coaching staff and facilities, and will give me an opportunity to earn my way on the field."

As many Spartan fans are aware, Coach Dantonio has now prioblems playing young playrs and even walk ons. This year the Spartans are startibg a red-shirt freshman at offense tackle in Jack Conklin and guard Connor Kruse is a former walk-on who has earned a scholarship due to him now being a part of the playing rotation.

Spartanmag.com will contionme to follow the recruitmht of Moorman in the coming weeks. We look for him to be one of the more active player sin Michigan thiswinter whenit comes to being invited and attending junior day around the Big t5en Conference.
