Michigan State had shown interest from the start and that intensified as Signing Day grew closer. He attended the last two Michigan State home football games and in his heart always wanted to play Big Ten football.

EAST LANSING - Michigan State continued to see their 2008 recruiting class get better and better as they grabbed their 21st commitment from North Branch offensive lineman Zach Heuter.

At 6-foot-8, 290-pounds, the big, imposing physical presence of Heuter looms large for MSU and further solidifies the Spartans outstanding group of incoming young offensive line prospects.

Despite his size, Heuter is athletic enough that he plays on the North Branch basketball team as a really big power forward/center.

Heuter committed to Central Michigan after an official visit in December. The first team All-State selection thought that he wouldn't be receiving offers from the Big Ten schools after camping at Michigan and receiving only mild interest.

He received offers from Eastern Michigan and Western Michigan and decided Central was the best of the offers.

But Michigan State had shown interest from the start and that intensified as Signing Day grew closer. He attended the last two Michigan State home football games and in his heart, always saw himself as a Big Ten football player.

His coach, Pat Forster of North Branch said that Heuter compares favorably to another player from the area, former Michigan standout Jake Long and that Heuter also received late interest from Michigan, but decided that East Lansing was the place for him.

GSN will be keeping close tabs on the progress of Michigan State's recruiting class as National Signing Day is just two days away.
