South Florida WR impressed with Spartans

Wide receiver Juwan Caesar of Coral Park High School in Florida took an official visit to Michigan State this weekend. SpartanMag.com was able to catch up with the 6-foot-4, 210-pound prospect and got some details on his time in East Lansing.

As SpartanMag.com stated last week, Caesar is one of the fastest rising prospects in South Florida for the class of 2011. The 3-star recruit is a player that Head Coach Mark Dantonio and the Michigan State Staff have made a priority. The Spartans offered Caesar a few weeks ago and made sure to have him on campus this weekend with all of the other top recruits.

Caesar currently has double-digit offers, including scholarships from other BCS programs such as Illinois, West Virginia, Minnesota and South Florida. His visit to Michigan State was his second official recruiting trip. SpartanMag.com asked him about his time in East Lansing.

"Michigan State was great," Caesar stated. "I really enjoyed myself and the people there are great too. My host was Bennie Fowler and I also spent time with Edwin Baker and some of the other recruits."

The Michigan State Staff likes to follow-up with recruits shortly after they visit and that is the case with Caesar. SpartanMag.com asked Caesar about that and what stood out to him the most on the visit.

"Coach Staten is supposed to come and see me on Tuesday I think," Caesar stated. "I really liked the atmosphere up there. The basketball game was great. My family did not come with me, but my grandfather lives in Michigan and he came to see me."

As of right now Michigan State only has one commitment from a wide receiver, Andre Sims Jr. of Georgia. Sims is a smaller wide receiver at 5-foot-9, and teh taller Caesar would be a nice complement. SpartanMag.com asked Caesar about how the staff feels he will fit in at Michigan State and what he thought about the academic aspects of the school.
"The coaches have said I would I would play the X position in their offense. The academic were top of the line. I am thinking about majoring in the communications filed and all of the course and the support they provide is top notch."

As of right now, Caesar indicated that he still intends on taking a few more official visits prior to making his college choice. Michigan State is getting very tight on scholarship and it could come down to a case of having enough room. How things play-out the next few weeks could be very interesting. Caesar would be an excellent addition to the Michigan State class of 2011 if he does decide to join the Spartan family.

Spartanmag.com will be sure to keep in touch with Caesar in the coming weeks.
