Michigan State recently entered the sweepstakes to land the top prospect in the state of Wisconsin, athlete Melvin Gordon of Kenosha Bradford.

SpartanMag.com caught up with the 6-2, 180-pound Gordon Thursday night and he talked about his newest offer, from the Spartans.

"I'm not exactly sure when I received it," Gordon said of his MSU offer, "but it's kind of exciting. It's very exciting getting an offer from a big-time school like that."
