The recruiting page has been updated :

MSU Recruits

It's going to be a lot of fun to see if the 2014 class, as it gets built, can continue to put points on the score sheet. The most notable thing with the 2012 class is its size. Rhett Holland has managed to tally eight points despite being in the penalty box for over 200 minutes in just 30 games. He stands 6-1, 210 lbs. Picture that next to Torey Krug. Boyd and Gatt, two transfers stand 6-3. So, you will notice quite a bit more size on the team next year.

The 2013 class actually brings more size, including 6-5, 220lbs. Mike McCarron. Justin Bailey stands 6-4 and is 185 lbs, though some people believe he will go the OHL route, I guess time will tell. The 2014 class has some size as well, and of course they all still have time to grow a little bit more before they set foot on campus.

The most recent verbal commitment is Brendon Perlini, the brother of current Spartan Brett Perlini.

2014 commitment Marcel Godbout was named captain of Team USA at the first ever Youth Olympic Games in Austria. The team finished in 4th place, losing in the bronze medal game to Canada 7-5. Team USA went 2-4 in the tournament. 

We will continue to update this page as needed. We may even provide a mini-profile for each player in the future. But it's good to see the current coaching staff working hard on the recruiting trail. They are grabbing some top talent.


  1. We recently saw Mike McCarron play for Team USA in the Under-17 World Challenge over in Windsor. Yes he's tall, but he also has some moves. Hope he makes it to wearing green 'n' white.

  2. The 2013 & 2014 classes are shaping up to be some of the more talented ones we've seen here at MSU in recent memory, so I'm hoping they all make it to East Lansing. The Coaching Staff is doing a really nice job blending size with skill with both classes. Things certainly are looking up.
