By Adam Rittenberg
Michigan State has finalized its recruiting class for 2011. Coach Mark Dantonio has signed 21 scholarship players and a walk-on.
The scholarship players include six from within the state and four from neighboring Ohio. Michigan State signed 13 defensive players, seven offensive players and one athlete.
Here's the position breakdown:
A few notes:
- For the second straight year, Michigan State's lone ESPNU 150 prospect is a talented defender from within the state. Inside linebacker Lawrence Thomas will join last year's headliner, William Gholston, in East Lansing.
- Although Thomas is the lone ESPNU 150 selection, all but two of Michigan State's prospects received a grade of three stars or more from ESPN Recruiting
- Michigan State added guard Kyle Lints as a preferred walk-on.
