Trotwood-Madison (Ohio) junior cornerback Cameron Burrows made a late week decision to join teammate Mike McCray for an unofficial visit to see Michigan State's home contest against Wisconsin, and was glad he did.
The 6-1, 195-pound Burrows was part of a large contingent of prospects who were in Spartan Stadium Saturday night for Michigan State's 37-31 win over the Badgers.
"I thought about it on Thursday and my coach asked me if I was going to go, and I just decided to go," Burrows said. "It was a great atmosphere and a great game. Every game I go to in Michigan comes down to the last second."

Burrows previous game visit in the state of Michigan was to see Michigan's last second win over Notre Dame. On Saturday, Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins hooked up with wide receiver Keith Nichol on a toss into the end zone as the clock expired for the game-winning score.
"When they got that Hail Mary catch, all the recruits were standing up, chanting that it was a touchdown," Burrows said. "Mike didn't know if Michigan State was going to pull it off, but I told him Michigan State was going to pull it off. During the fourth quarter when Wisconsin started to come back, I still had faith in Michigan State."
Both Michigan State and Wisconsin have offered Burrows, with the Badgers being the most recent of his 12 offers. This was his first time on Michigan State's campus, and he came away impressed with what he saw.
"I have great interest in them," Burrows said. "I like everything they have to offer - the facilities, the fans and they are a great team."
Before the game, Burrows had a chance to talk with Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio and after he spoke with defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi and defensive backs coach Harlon Barnett.
Next up for Burrows is an Oct. 29 visit to Ohio State to see the Buckeyes take on Wisconsin. He also plans to visit Alabama the weekend of Nov. 5 and Wisconsin the weekend of Nov. 26.
