The Michigan State Spartans and head coach Mark Dantonio wanted one quarterback in the 2010 class. They offered Orchard Lake Saint Maryâ€™s Robert Bolden early.Â He garnered national attention and kept the Spartans waiting.Â That wait is over.
Â Dantonio Adds his sixth 2010 recruit and his sixth from the State of Michigan:Â QB Joe Boisture from Saline High School.Â Shortly after the 2009 class had their national letter of intent signing day, Boisture committed to Boston College.Â The Big 6â€™6â€ 208 pound big armed QB had a lot of attention from as far away as UCLA, but when Robert Bolden decided to wait the Spartans were not going to be left at the altar with no date.Â Boisture liked the staff as they did him and the two are a natural fit.
Boisture is a very gifted QB, with excellent vision and a rocket for an arm.Â He fits the Spartan pro set offense very well.Â Come February when the 2010 class can sign, he will now be the proverbial magic number fourth QB on scholarship that Mark Dantonio has repeatedly stated he wanted.
One of the many things that Boisture does well is laterally move his feet and although many pro style QBs have accuracy in the pocket, he maintains it while using that lateral movement.Â One thing that is pleasantly surprising about the right handed Boisture is that he has equal mobility and accuracy when rolling left.
The only concern that some have had is that he has run a lot of snaps out of the shotgun.Â I certainly have great faith in the Spartan staff that they have no concerns and the Spartan Nation welcomes the youngster with open arms. He joins Kirk Cousins, Keith Nichol and Andrew Maxwell giving the Spartans what some believe (myself included) the best stable of QBs they have had in decades.Â You now have four top flight QBâ€™s on one roster once Boisture joins the team in 2010.
Boisture as state before is the sixth commitment so far for Mark Dantonio in the 2010 class.Â He joins by Traverse City Saint Francis MLB Max Bullough and Detroit Crockettâ€™s Tony Lippett along with CB Mylan Hicks, DE Taylor Calero, and the prize of the class, DE William Gholston.
The Spartans have a lot of talented football players who will be on campus over the next several weeks and the number of six commitments is expected to rise quickly over that time.
