Monty Madaris
(Cincinnati, Ohio/Moeller), one of the top wide receiver prospects in
the state of Ohio, was in East Lansing, Mich., over the weekend visiting
Michigan State.

As a junior, Madaris caught 52 passes for 720
yards with seven touchdowns.

“I was up there Saturday for
their junior day,” Madaris said. “I liked it a lot. It was the second
time I’ve been there.”

The highlight this time for Madaris was talking to the Michigan
State coaches and players, but the coaches in particular.

“I talked to Coach D (Mark Dantonio)
and some of the other coaches,” Madaris said. “I talked to coach
(Terrence) Samuel, the new wide receivers coach. I liked him a lot. He
knows a lot about football.

“And coach Dantonio was straight with me.”

The 6-foot-2 and 185-pound Madaris has been a varsity starter for
the Crusaders since his sophomore season. In his first year as a
starter Madaris caught 15 passes with two touchdowns.

Madaris had a break-out junior season. He caught 52 passes for
720 yards with seven touchdowns. Madaris averaged 13.8 yards per catch.
He also had 260 yards rushing with three touchdowns.

Madaris has scholarship offers from Michigan State, Nebraska,
Illinois, Indiana, Boston College, Cincinnati, Bowling Green and Kent
State.

This coming weekend will be a busy one for Madaris.

“I’m going to the North-South All-Star game at Ohio Stadium on
Friday.” Madaris said. “I’m riding up with (Moeller defensive end and
Wisconsin signee) Jesse Hayes.
I’m going to visit Ohio State while I’m up there.

“Then we’re going to the Wisconsin spring game on Saturday.”

Madaris said he doesn’t have a favorite at this point, but he
does know when he wants to pick a college.

“I’m going to decide for sure decide during the (football)
season,” Madaris said.

Bill Kurelic’s Comment: If I had to predict right now, I would
go with Michigan State as the school to beat. However, things could
change if Madaris gets offers from Wisconsin and/or Ohio State. They
could also change if he makes an official visit to Nebraska.
