Princeton (N.J.) The Hun School tight end Craig McGovern committed on Tuesday to a Big 10 school in a surprise move. Who landed the three-star stud?
"I committed to Michigan State," said McGovern, who caught 35 passes for 735 yards and a score as a junior. "It was my second visit out there and I really loved it. I'm out here right now and just committed to coach Smith."
Michigan State head coach John L. Smith was known for utilizing the tight end in his offense at Louisville. McGovern believes that will continue.

"The tight end is going to be a huge part of their offense," he said. "They think I can catch 60 balls a year and that's what I want."
McGovern also had offers from Ohio State, Nebraska, Maryland, Northwestern, Boston College, Purdue and Souther Cal amongst others.
"I took trips to Northwestern, Nebraska, Purdue, OSU, Maryland and some other place," he said. "But MSU felt like home. It's the best fit for me overall."
McGovern will take his official visit to Michigan State on Nov. 28 and isn't considering any other schools.
