This one is a no-brainer. Donnie Corley has been and will continue to be the team’s top recruiting target for the class of 2016 at the wide receiver position. The highly-touted four-star recruit is ranked the No. 103 player in the nation and the No. 12 wide receiver in the nation, according to 247Sports.

It has been re-iterated by current commits such as Messiah deWeaver, Cam Chambers and Abdul Adams that Corley is top priority. deWeaver has been putting in his best efforts to snag the top Detroit King prospect and bring him to East Lansing to join one of the best receiver classes in Dantonio’s tenure.

Just how good can this receiver class be? The Spartans just added four-star Trishton Jackson to a group which already held commitments from Chambers and four-star Justin Layne from Ohio. Add Corley to the mix and that gives MSU a quartet four-star commits at the position — three of which would be top-200 players.

Many believe it’s just a matter of time before Corley makes his pledge to Michigan State, but he wanted to get a feel for all of his top colleges first. He has even said on many occasions that he ‘definitely’ has Michigan State in his top two.

As I stated earlier, Corley is high school teammates and good friends with Penn State commit and fellow top target Lavert Hill. Don’t be surprised if Corley’s commitment means a flip for Hill as the two seem to be a package deal.

This could end up being MSU’s best receiving class ever as I believe Corley is already Green & White, but doesn’t want to reveal it yet.
