Upper Arlington, Ohio linebacker Chris Frey committed to Michigan State, just after noon on Wednesday.
Frey committed to Michigan State over Kentucky, Boston College, Purdue and Illinois.
Frey camped at Michigan State last summer, gained a scholarship offer from the Spartans last summer, took an unofficial visit to East Lansing on Monday.
Last week, he said he planned to make a decision in July. Then he shortened the timetable to two week, according to a text he sent to SpartanMag.com's Matt Dorsey on Tuesday night. Then Wednesday morning, he was suddenly ready to end it.
Frey a recounted a recent conversation with Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio:
"He proceeded to say he watched my video plenty of times, likes the way I play, that I am an old-school linebacker who brings enthusiasm to the field and loves to hit," Frey told Rivals.com last week. "He said, 'I wanted to offer you a scholarship.' I had to stop for a second and take a deep breath because it was a huge surprise I was not expecting it at all."
