Will Ohio's top QB Camp at MSU?
Last year the state of Michigan produced an unheard of seven quarterbacks that signed with BCS Conference Division 1 programs. So far this year not a single Michigan quarterback has a BCS offer at this point. For that reason Spartan Head Coach Mark Dantonio and his staff are looking outside of Michigan. One of the players the staff has been in contact with is 6-foot-4, 185-pound Zac Dyeart of Ada High school in Ohio. SpartanMag.com spoke with Dysart last night and he gave us the latest news on his recruitment.
"I have 11 offers all together," Dyset said. "I have offers from just about everyone in the MAC as well as Cincinnati, Kansas and Troy State"
How does a quarterback from Ohio end up with a Topy State offer?
"That is the offense we run. My Coach went down there to a clinic with their staff and we implemented the same offense. After the coaches there saw how I ran the offense, they decided to offer."
Dysert indicated that in addition to the above teams the Purdue Boilermakers and Michigan State Spartans have also been showing him regular interest. Will Dysert hold out for a possible Big Ten offer or will he pull the trigger?
"I have thought about making my decision soon. A lot of people keep telling me to wait because I will get more offers, but I am not really sure. I have been to camps at Cincinnati and Ball State so far. If I do go to anymore camps it will likely be Michigan State and Purdue," he said.
The Spartans still have a 1-day camp session coming up later this month and a 3-day camp session in July from the 8th to the 10th. Purdue also has July camp as well. It is very possible that Dyeart could pop-in for a 1-day session to work with the respective staffs.
"Coach Treadwell stopped by my school back in May and the (Michigan State) have kept in touch," he said.
Dysert has alreayd camped at Ball State and Cincinnati. He stated enjoyed his time at Cincinnati and despite the recent commitment of quarterback Dominick Britt, the Bearcats are still active recruiting him.
"I know they have a like eight quarterbacks on the roster. They took Zach Collaros from Steubenville last year and they already have Britt this year. They told me they are going to take as many quarterbacks as it takes to find the right guy for the offense."
Dysert had a strong showing at the Elite Combine in Cleveland earlier this month and that is when his list of scholarship offers exploded from a few to double-digits. The Michigan State staff was on hand at that event so they have seen Dysert in action to some extent.
Dysart seemed pretty sure that he wants to make a decision prior to his senior year. The main thing that could be holding up the decision is to find out if he has what it takes to compete at the highest level of college football.
Both Purdue and Michigan State have offered Indiana quarterback Marqueis Gray a scholarship, but his recruitment could drag out for quite a while. In addition, their is no guarantee that the Boilermakers or Spartans will the Gray sweepstakes.
It would not surprise us if Dysert decides to stop into East Lansing and West Lafayette for a day of camp next month. A strong performance could net him a Big Ten offer. If he is not offered, he will certainly be able to make his decision knowing that he had worked out for coaches at all levels and can feel confident in his selection.
SpartanMag.com will be keeping in-touch with Dysert over the coming weeks and we will be sure to keep an eye out for him at the Spartan camp as well.
