Spartans nab K Michael Geiger
Three-star Michael Geiger (Toledo, Ohio/Ottawa Hills), ESPN's No. 12-rated kicking prospect for 2013, has pledged to sign with Michigan State, according to multiple reports. He was recruited by Spartans linebackers coach / special teams coach Mike Tressel.
Geiger posted on Twitter, "Just Committed to Michigan State University on a full ride scholarship! #GoGreen #Spartans" The Tweet included a picture of Geiger with MSU head coach Mark Dantonio.
The Spartans are set to lose kicker Dan Conroy, who is 22-for-31 on field goal attempts this season, after the Dec. 26th Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl.
Geiger, a 5-foot-9, 166-pound Semper Fidelis All-American, originally committed to Boston College in June but reopened his recruitment following the Eagles' coaching change.
Michigan State has 15 players on board for 2013 and the country's No. 32-rated recruiting class.
