Michigan State has recruited out-of-state increasingly better over the past few years and did so again this week, grabbing the commitment of Sarasota (Fla.) cornerback Ezra Robinson on Thursday.

"I knew during my visit that Michigan State was the right place for me,” Robinson told “I just got along so well with [commitments Kyle Kerrick and Jermaine Edmondson]. Also, I just was on the same page with some of the players and their whole entire coaching staff."

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound defensive back visited campus during the Spartans upset win over Wisconsin a few weeks ago. He held offers from Georgia Tech, North Carolina, South Florida and West Virginia among others but was sold on playing defense for Mark Dantonio and his staff.

"It's just a great program," he said. "They’re really defensively sound and I love that. Coach Dantonio is a defensive back coach by nature. That kinda gives you that edge being a defensive back. Michigan State is the perfect place to be. The coaching staff and the players. They all make you feel like you’re a part of a family already. If you have that type of relationship with your coaches and teammates you can never go wrong with it."

Robinson's pledge gives Michigan State 15 class of 2012 commitments, just two of which are defensive backs.
