When Montorie Foster committed to Michigan State, he had played very little high school football and Mark Dantonio took a risk on him as a high-upside athlete. Through his first three years of play, he didn’t produce a ton, but had somewhat of a minor “breakout” in 2021 with 12 catches for 164 yards and a touchdown. He made some nice plays.
In 2022, however, he was quiet, only catching seven passes for 98 yards and a score. To be fair, the entire offense took a step back last season.
Coming into 2023, he looks poised to break out.
During the spring game, he was making some impressive catches and wowing the crowd with his athleticism. We’re starting to see just why Dantonio was high on a kid who played minimal high school football. He’s an athletic specimen.
The 6-foot-0, 185-pound wideout from Cleveland, Ohio, was one of three Spartan receivers who impressed me on Saturday along with Tyrell Henry and Antonio Gates Jr.
But with a starting spot up for grabs, I would not be shocked to see the veteran start this season and put up some career-highs.
