EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) Recruiting has changed a bit for Mark Dantonio since he first took over as Michigan State's coach.
"When we came here back in 2007, the reality of the situation was that we were selling hopes," Dantonio said. "It's to a point now where we're selling results, and that's the big difference."
After winning the Cotton Bowl last month and the Rose Bowl in 2014, Michigan State announced a 22-player recruiting class Wednesday. It includes LJ Scott of Hubbard, Ohio, who is considered one of the nation's top running back prospects, and the Spartans also added a couple in-state defensive standouts - linebacker Tyriq Thompson of Detroit and cornerback Tyson Smith of Southfield.
