Perry A. Farrell Detroit Free Press Published 11:10 AM EDT Oct 18, 2018 Michigan State football commit Tate Hallock is attending Saturday’s game against Michigan and he’ll be recruiting. His main target is Canton defensive end Darius Robinson, the highest ranked player in the state for the class of 2019 yet to pick a college. Hallock, whose brother, Tanner, is a redshirt freshman linebacker on MSU and whose father, Ty, played fullback, tight end and linebacker for the Spartans, is a linebacker from Grand Rapids Forest Hills Central. Robinson has two more visits – MSU and Syracuse – before he makes his decision sometime in November, so this would be a good time for Hallock to get in his ear. Some of the top juniors in the state will be guests of the Spartans at Saturday's game. Detroit Cass Tech has its homecoming that night, so no one from that school is scheduled to be in East Lansing according to coach Thomas Wilcher.

Chris Solari Detroit Free Press Published 6:55 p.m. UTC Aug 19, 2018 EAST LANSING — Jake Hartbarger and Matt Coghlin give Michigan State football a strong returning nucleus at the glamorous kicking positions. Everything else on special teams remains to be determined. From who will be kicking and catching them to how they will boot and field the ball. The NCAA will now allow kick returners to make fair catches that will result in touchbacks if the ball is caught inside their team’s 25-yard line. It is another method of taking out some of the most dangerous hits out of football, but it also adds another strategic special teams element. “That will be an interesting thing to watch throughout the season, how other people do it and what we do as well,” MSU coach Mark Dantonio said last Monday. “Our intent is if it’s hung up there, you’re probably looking at fair-catching it around the goal line or that type of thing.
