EAST LANSING - Michigan State today, received their ninth verbal commitment from Lansing Sexton star offensive lineman Micajah Reynolds GSN has learned.
Reynolds verbally committed to the school in an 11:00am meeting with Coach Mark Dantonio on the East Lansing campus.
Sexton offensive line coach Mark Saade, told GSN that Reynolds made a big impression on the Spartans coaching staff at the recent 7-on-7 and Big Man camp held in East Lansing.
"Afterwards, Coach Dantonio came up to Micajah and our staff and told us that they really liked what they saw and they hoped that Micajah would wear the Green and White over the next few years, but that they wanted to do things the right way," said Saade.
"So they invited us to return to East Lansing today. They made the offer and Micajah accepted it. That was the one he was waiting for." Coach Saade said the whole Sexton staff was elated for Reynolds and now they hope to "get his full attention" focused back on having a successful season at Sexton.
GSN's Joe Torok weighed in on Reynolds stating, "Reynolds (also a guard prospect) had some good drive and power as well -- maybe even has the highest ceiling. But he's the biggest project among the five. He pushed people around, but was winded pretty quickly."
"He'll need to work on keeping his center of gravity below him, which should come along when he gets into a good strength and conditioning program. (But he) reminds me of (current MSU senior starting tackle) Roland Martin."
Sexton coach Dan Boggan told the Lansing State Journal "The one thing about him, he's already (academically) qualified, a great student ... and he's super athletic. You can see it on film, you just don't have people that big, that fast, being able to do the things he can do."
GSN will have more from Reynolds on his commitment to Michigan State in an up close and personal interview to follow.
