Spartans beat OSU, Wisconsin for All-American DB

Mark Dantonio and the Michigan State Spartans continued to close strong on the recruiting trail with the addition of 4-star All-American safety Demetrious Cox of Jeanette High School in Pennsylvania. Cox selected the Spartans over Ohio State, Penn State and Wisconsin.

Cox is a player the Michigan State staff made a top priority early on in the process. Cox took multiple visit to Michigan State this this past year, including an official recruiting visit the weekend of December 16th. The 6-foot-1, 192-pound prospect also took visits to Ohio State, Penn State and Wisconsin.
