Throughout the last few weeks we here at have had our emphasis on recruiting lineman, on both sides of the ball. And while games are won in the trenches, it doesn’t hurt to have a strong-legged little guy booting the ball through the uprights.


Well, Michigan State has added that piece to their 2009 class.


Troy High (MI) Kicker Kevin Muma committed to play his college ball at MSU this past Sunday, choosing he Spartans over offers from both Bowling Green and Kansas.


The Spartans were lucky to grab Muma, who strongly considering playing in the Big 12, and in part it was in thanks to the proximity of his hometown to where he will be playing in college. Muma is the 20th player to commit to MSU, and the 12th from the state of Michigan.


Muma is known for his strong leg and could possibly compete for kickoff duties this coming fall, although on principle Coach Dantonio does prefer to red-shirt as many players as possible.


With All Big-Ten Kicker Brett Swenson heading into his Senior season it was a priority for the Spartans to land a replacement within the next two recruiting classes. Not only has Muma filled that void, he has given himself an opportunity to learn beneath a very solid senior leader in Swenson.


Coach Dantonio’s staff said they would take a kicker or a high caliber athlete with one of the remaining scholarships and getting Muma to East Lansing certainly fits the bill.


With scholarships dwindling make sure to stay tuned to for your recruiting news and as always it will be FREE OF CHARGE!
