LB Jayrone Elliott is a Player MSU really likes

Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio would like nothing better than to establish a pipeline from Cleveland (OH) Glenville high school to Michigan State University. The Spartans have offered five players from the school, more than any other. Get INside to find out what's the status of these five stars that MSU wants to grab commitments from.

Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio would like nothing better than to establish a pipeline from Cleveland (OH) Glenville high school to Michigan State University.

Glenville annually produces as much Division I talent as any school in the country. Michigan State has already offered three Glenville players for this year's 2010 class and two more for the class of 2011.

Two players, Latwan Anderson and Christian Bryant visited MSU for Iowa week and came away with mixed reviews. Latwan Anderson cooled on MSU after the visit, but Christian Bryant liked what he saw and continues to keep the Spartans in his top two.

A bit more difficult to read has been outside linebacker Jayrone Elliott who has been on MSU's radar since he shined in a one-day camp on the East Lansing campus. Elliott told GSN yesterday that, while he has over nine offers, he "has not narrowed down his list at all."

After his appearance at MSU's camp in July, he had indicated it was just MSU and Cincinnati, but now with Tennessee, Syracuse, West Virginia and many other expressing interest and with the Tarblooders in the state playoffs, Elliott seems to have put recruiting on the back burner.

Right now, he has six teams in his final list and doesn't plan to eliminate any soon. He said he has "no timetable" for narrowing his list.

The three have been spectacular in leading Glenville on the road to a possible state championship. Anderson returned an interception 99 yards for a touchdown. Bryant, who doubles as a place kicker, booted a 25-yard field goal and Elliiott got a sack and forced a fumble, as the Tarblooders forced eight turnovers against St. Ignatius who came into the contest riding a 25-game winning streak. Glenville (11-1) won 30-13.

Two underclassmen, tackle Aundrey Walker (6-foot-5, 305-pounds) and middle linebacker Andre Sturdivant already have MSU offers for next seasons class.

What's the secret to all the success at Glenville? One of the reasons is the outstanding coaching and the system put in place by Coach Ted Ginn, Sr. Ginn is one of the most accomplished high school football coaches in the nation
