According to multiple sources, defensive back Justin Williams (Port St. Lucie, Fla./Treasure Coast) pledged to sign with the Spartans Saturday while on an official visit. MLive.com reports that the 6-foot-1, 180-pound safety was in attendance for Michigan State's 59-56 men's basketball win over Ohio State.
Williams, who will be evaluated soon by ESPN, also took official visits to Purdue (Nov. 3rd), Cincinnati (Jan. 11th) and Marshall (Jan. 13th). His other scholarship offers include Florida International, South Carolina and West Virginia.
He is Michigan State's 16th verbal, and first since kicker Michael Geiger (Toledo, Ohio/Ottawa Hills) switched from Boston College in early December.
