Illinois o-lineman set to visit MSU

Offensive lineman Tyler Loos of Sterling High School in Illinois will be visiting Michigan State the weekend of January 15th. SpartanMag.com caught up with the 6-foot-5, 265-pound prospect and has the latest on his recruitment.

Last night SpartanMag.com broke news the Loos would be visiting Michigan State. We asked him today about the official visit.

Michigan State calls me up every week and they have said they want me up there the weekend of January 15th. I talked with Coach Dantonio and he said they would not have me coming up there if they did not intend to offer.

Loos camped at Michigan State this summer and it was obvious to SpartanMag.com that he was one of the top performers there. Coach Roushar was working with Loos extensively and he excelled in the one-on-one portion. We asked Loos about what position the 4partans like him for?

At Michigan State I think they like me as an interior player. I think some of the other schools see me as a tackle.

If the Spartans do extend Loos a scholarship on his visit, could he make a commitment?

It all depends on how the visit goes he said. If everything goes well and I get offered I could definitely commit. Right now though, Northern Illinois is my top choice. I really like it there and I like the coaches.

This past fall Loos had a strong season for Sterling High School. He was named to the Class 5A All-State Team for the second time as well as being named 1st team All-Area and 1st team All-League.

In addition to football, Loos is an excellent Track athlete. He participates in the shot and disc for Sterling High and is one of the top returning throwers in the state. Loos has personal bests of 162 feet in the discus and 54 feet in the shot-put.

As SpartanMag.com indicated in our previous update, Loos is an outstanding student. He informed us that he will likely look to major in engineering in college as he scored 34 on his ACT in Math and Science.

SpartanMag.com will be sure to touch base with Loos after he returns from East Lansing.
