Four-star tight end Luke Farrell may be considered a heavy Ohio State-lean, but the Spartans won’t stop pushing until they get their way in this one, though Michigan State already has three-star Noah Davis committed for the 2016 class.

Farrell may be leaning toward the Buckeyes, but the Spartans are still in good standing with him as they made his top-five cut and impressed him during his visit to campus for the Spartans Elite camp as well as an unofficial tour. Farrell was just as impressed with Michigan State as the Spartans were with him after watching his 7-on-7 performance at camp.

Ranking No. 141 overall and the No. 5 tight end in the class by 247Sports, he is considered a top target for Dantonio and his staff who are working tirelessly to make sure he leaves the Buckeye State in order to join greener pastures.

The young tight end has good size, standing 6-foot-6 and weighing in at 240 pounds, as well as strong hands that help him rise up over defenders for impressive receptions. A class with Davis and Farrell could mean dual-tight ends that can both produce in the way Josiah Price has.
