Michigan State added the program's first 2013 defensive commitment on Friday as Bloomfield (Mich.) linebacker Jon Reschke pledged to become a Spartan.
“I’ve been thinking about it for about three weeks,” Reschke told Scout. “I sat down and talked with my dad and family. My dad was asking me questions and there were about a dozen schools that wanted me to come to Junior Days and possibly at least half of them would have offered."
The 6-foot-2, 223-pound outside linebacker only held an offer from Toledo before one from Michigan State came in. Reschke is good friends with Michigan quarterback commit Shane Morris so donning the green and white will make for an interesting relationship going forward.
“I’ve been texting Shane and I thought he was a little mad at me,” said Reschke. “He texted me and I was like I’m sorry man, but this is what I’ve got to do for myself. I have to make the right decision for myself just like you did. He completely understood and was more than happy for me. He’s happy I’m at the right school.”
Reschke's pledge gives Michigan State two commitments in the class of 2013. He had an impressive 140 tackles last season as a junior.
