EAST LANSING - Michigan State lost a game, but they picked up a win in the recruiting wars. The Spartans outfought Ohio State, Wisconsin and Illinois for the services of Flint Carman-Ainsworth star defensive tackle Ryan Wheat.

The Spartans have been in pursuit of the 6-foot-4, 285 pound stud defensive tackle all off season and their relentless pursuit paid dividends when he joined the fold Sunday after the Spartans tough 40-37 loss to the Fighting Irish.

"They send me a letter everyday," Wheat said of the Spartans. "I like the coaches because they are very personal and honest with me. They are really looking up and they think that they are moving in the right direction. They told me that they'll be even better in 2007."

Wheat, a three-star defensive tackle, becomes the 10th member of the Spartans 2007 class joining teammate George White, a three-star linebacker who committed earlier in the process, but now he can complete his senior season and work on getting stronger heading into his freshman season at Michigan State.

Wheat joins White and receivers Mark Dell and Kendall Washington, linemen Jack Cornell, Darrell Davis-Budanauro and Paul Simkovich, safety Quincy Landingham, defensive tackle Vaughn Martin and quarterback Keith Nichol as members of the Spartans 2007 recruiting class.
