MELVINDALE, MI - Michigan State struck paydirt when former Detroit MacKenzie and current Melvindale offensive/defensive lineman Anthony Woods committed to Michigan State.
At 6-foot-4, 295-pounds, Woods has both the size and the speed to affect change in the middle of the interior line, whether it be on offense or defense.
MSU could use Woods on either side of the ball, but the commitment from the versatile big man was yet another shot in the arm to the recruiting efforts of the Spartans which have snowballed with four commitments in the past two weeks.
Woods teamed with current Detroit King star Nick Perry to form a dynamic duo that stuffed opponents run games on defense and blew open holes which current Cincinnati commitment Darrin Williams benefitted from.
Some thought that Woods would stay in the PSL and join Perry at King but instead, he opted for the Mega Gold conference and a solid Melvindale squad which boast some big time talent and should make a run in the Mega conference and perhaps the State playoffs.
There is one school of thought that MSU will look at Woods' teammate 6-foot-3, 285-pound Cordell Bell, a player who's flown under the radar.
