A Michigan State commit will not sign after getting arrested
It’s one thing to miss out on a recruit on National Signing Day because he picks a different school.
It’s another thing to have a recruit miss out on signing day because he’s in jail.
That was the reality for Michigan State commit Donovan Winter, who was arrested on Monday night for burglary and larceny of a firearm. He’s still in Seminole County jail as of Wednesday.
Winter was being held on $2,000 bond and awaiting a GPS device to be placed on him, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
The Spartans were made aware of the arrest — Winter wasn’t one of the names Mark Dantonio announced when he introduced the incoming 2017 class — but have yet to comment officially on the matter.
The three-star Orlando (Fla.) defensive end committed to MSU back in June and took an official visit to East Lansing three weeks before signing day.
Without Winter, MSU’s 2017 class is down to three defensive linemen.
