All Spartan: Zach Higgins

Spartan Digest continues its signing day coverage with a profile of offensive line recruit Zach Higgins.

Michigan State was looking for tough hardnosed offensive linemen in the 2012 class and they feel they have one in Zach Higgins.

Zach Higgins

Alliance (OH) Marlington HS

6-4 / 300 lbs.

Scout.com Ranking: Offensive Guard #50 overall

Fellow incoming outside offensive linemen: Benny McGowan, Kodi Kieler

Allen Trieu on Higgins: He's a mauler, a big, straight ahead road grader in the running game. He has to work on his pass protection, which will certainly be coached into him at MSU, but he has all the pre-requisites: mainly size, strength and some meanness.

DANTONIO ON HIGGINS: "Zach is a tough-minded offensive lineman. He attended our camp and we saw him play in 2011. He's very athletic and physical, showed balance and explosion, and has excellent feet. He's also an outstanding wrestler. We have him projected as a guard."
