Cage will be on campus this weekend

The Michigan State staff will host an important recruit this weekend when defensive tackle Daniel Cage of Winton Woods High School in Cincinnati takes a visit. The 6-foot-3, 285-pound prospect is rated a 3-star recruit and the # 26 player in the nation at his position by He is also rated the # 19 player in Ohio for the class of 2014.

Cage has an extensive list of scholarship offers which includes schools such as Michigan State, Nebraska, Florida, Georgia Tech, West Virginia, Louisville, Kentucky, Tennessee and Missouri. He recently indicated that he has narrowed his list down to two teams and the Spartans and the Louisville Cardinals are the main contenders for his pledge.

Cage camped at Michigan State in the summer of 2012 prior to his junior season and was one of the top performers at his position despite being a year younger than the majority of prospects in attendance. Based on's assessment, Cage's performance compared favorably to former Spartan All-American and Ohio product Jerel Worthy when he was in high school. His primary recruiter is Spartsn Coach Harlon Barnett.

Adding Cage to the defensive line would be a big addition considering he would team with several other high-quality prospects that have already committed to Michigan State. A commitment from Cage would definitely give the Spartans one of the best defensive line classes in the Big Ten for 2014.

Cage will get an opportunity to get to know several potential Spartan teammates while he is in East Lansing. The majority of committed players will be on campus. Below is the list of commited prospect expected to be in East Lansing this weekend:
