One of the more frequent visitors to Michigan State's campus this winter and spring has been Portage (Mich.) Central offensive guard Nate Jeppesen. The 6-4, 260-pound Jeppesen was back in East Lansing on Tuesday to take in a spring practice.
"They go really fast, really hard all the time and keep the tempo up," Jeppesen said. "They keep everybody on their feet and don't waste time. I like watching practices like that."
Michigan State is still evaluating Jeppesen for an offer, and the in-state offensive lineman remains high on the Spartans.
"The offer is still pending right now," Jeppesen said after Tuesday's visit. "I don't know where that is going to go, but they are obviously going to make the right decision. I just have to keep working hard.
"I feel great about them. Everything they say sounds like me, what I do and what I want to do."
Jeppesen currently holds three offers after picking up another last Friday from Toledo. He was previously offered by Western Michigan and Central Michigan, and was in Mount Pleasant earlier this week visiting the Chippewas.
"That went pretty good, actually," Jeppesen said of the Central Michigan visit. "I got to see a little more into what they have to offer, and thought it was pretty nice."
Next up for Jeppesen will be a visit to Eastern Michigan on Thursday and a trip to Western Michigan on Saturday. He also is looking at visiting Wisconsin the weekend of April 14.
"They have been sending me letters and sending me invites to stuff," Jeppesen said of the Badgers. "I haven't specifically talked to anyone there yet, but I am interested because they have always had a really good offensive line."
