It would be very premature to say Winton Woods junior defensive tackle Daniel Cage could be the next Jerel Worthy, but one thing is certain; the Spartan staff would like to give Cage every opportunity to do what Worthy did at Michigan State.
It would be very premature to say Winton Woods junior defensive tackle Daniel Cage could be the next Jerel Worthy who of
course had a great career at Michigan State including being named
All-American in his final season in East Lansing.
The 6-foot-3 and 275-pound Cage is similar in size to Worthy when
Worthy was a junior in high school, and like Worthy, Cage is from
Cage worked out at the Spartans’ camp last summer, plans to be
back at camp again this summer, and also may visit Michigan State again
sometime this spring.
“I want to go back to Michigan State’s camp,” Cage said. “I liked it a lot and I learned a lot.
“Hopefully I’ll get back there this spring too with my parents. They haven’t seen Michigan State yet.”
On Monday Cage landed offer No. 19, this one coming from
Nebraska. His list also includes Michigan State, Florida, Louisville,
Tennessee, Illinois, Cincinnati, Georgia Tech, Minnesota and Indiana.
Cage has started to formulate a list of his favorite schools.
“Louisville, Michigan State, Florida, Indiana, Illinois and UC, those are my top choices right now,” Cage said.
As far as when he plans to select a college, Cage said he is not sure at this point.
Cage was outstanding his junior season when he had 22 sacks from
his defensive tackle position. He had 15 more sacks during his junior
season. Cage is slated to play defensive end his senior season, but the
Spartans and most schools are recruiting him as a defensive tackle.
Cage is a 3-star prospect in the 247Sports rankings. He is the
country’s No. 43 defensive tackle and the No. 31 prospect in Ohio.
