“I’m really interested in Michigan State,” Cason said. “I love this program and I have a great relationship with the coaches. (Running backs coach) Brad Salem and I talk about twice a week, and the coaching staff sends me letters just about every other day.”

The 6-foot, 178-pound junior, who runs a 4.49 40-yard dash, says education is most important to him and he wants to go to school that has a great engineering program like the one Michigan State has.

“I looked at the people who’ve graduated from MSU’s engineering program and where they are working now, and a high percentage of them are working at (General Motors) right now making six figures, which is something I like.”

Education aside, Cason wants to join a winning team where he can get a lot of playing time.

Cason also holds offers from Bowling Green and Toledo, and has gotten interest from Illinois, West Virginia and several other programs. He said his top-five favorite schools are Michigan, Michigan State, Missouri, Oregon and Nebraska, so the Spartans definitely have a chance of getting his signature on a letter of intent in the future.

Asked when he would verbally commit to a school, Cason did not have a timeline in mind yet.

“I want to know where I’m going before my senior year, but if a bunch of schools offer, I’m probably going to take my time looking at every single one of them and decide which one I want to go to.”

Cason has visited Michigan State in the past and plans to attend several games in the near future, including the Spartans’ game this Saturday against Nebraska.
