Michigan State got impatient.
Initially, the Spartans staff was planning to wait until the spring evaluation period in April to watch Chase Gianacakos (Saint Charles, Ill./Saint Charles North) work out. The 6-foot-5, 280-pound offensive tackle visited Michigan State in February, and Mark Dantonio told Gianacakos the Spartans were not ready to offer.
He continued to stay in contact with offensive line coach Mark Staten, though. Two weeks ago, Staten just asked Gianacakos to send him a tape of him working out.
