Michigan State‘s freshman running back L.J. Scott is having one of the best starts to his Spartan career of anyone to put on the green and white. The former four-star running back from Hubbard High (Ohio) is living up to the hype and becoming a serious Big Ten Freshman of the Year candidate.

Scott’s former high school teammate and fellow running back, George Hill, is now looking for a new college to attend after he recently decommitted from Ohio State on Wednesday evening, according to Scout.com‘s Bill Greene.
Hill has already said that Scott has been trying to get him to flip to Michigan State and the high school senior has been to East Lansing a couple of times recently — including Sept. 12 for the Oregon game.
Recently, Hill said that he was 100 percent committed to Ohio State and that he was only in East Lansing to visit Scott. However, this reaffirms that the Spartans are in good position with him.
It has been rumored for some time that Hill would likely flip to Michigan State if he were to switch his pledge anywhere, and that may very well be true as Mark Dantonio has been in constant contact with the four-star running back who is ranked the No. 75 overall player in the 2016 class and the No. 2 ATH, according to 247Sports.
Let’s see if the Spartans can get a visit from the big-time running back who would be a huge addition to an already stacked 2016 class.
