Michigan State Recruiting: 2018 QB Theo Day gets 4-star ratings bump

Michigan State recruiting’s 2018 quarterback pledge Theo Day has received a ratings boost via the 247Sports composite.

If you’ve ever seen Theo Day play, you would understand why so many scouts are high on him. The four-star quarterback from Dearborn, Mich., has become one of the top gunslingers in the country and he got a composite ratings bump on Thursday.

Some services, reflected by the 247Sports composite rankings, still had Day has a three-star, which confused many. He has a huge junior season with Dearborn Divine Child and was impressing in offseason camps, but yet there were some services that didn’t completely believe in him as a four-star.

Now, Day is listed as a composite four-star — finally — and can spend the rest of his summer improving on those ratings. The 247Sports rankings have him listed as the No. 210 prospect in the 2018 class and eighth-best quarterback.

Day has the arm, measurables and attitude of an elite quarterback and he will be a valuable asset in the 2018 class. He has the strong arm and tools to make him a future All-Big Ten candidate and if I had to compare him to a recent MSU quarterback, it’d be Connor Cook. He stays calm under pressure and can make tight throws look easy.

Standing 6-foot-5 and about 200 pounds, Day could be one of the most special quarterback pledges in the Mark Dantonio era.

No longer can we call Day ‘underrated’ as he’s finally getting the respect he deserves. Now can he soar into the top-200 range?
