New Jersey's Cadogan contemplates his choice

One of the recruits that Michigan State fans are most anxious to hear about is Sherard Cadogan of Camden Catholic High School in New Jersey. SpartanMag.com caught up with the 6-foot-3, 230-pound prospect last night and got some details on his recruitment.

A few days ago it was reported that Cadogan could make a commitment prior to Christmas. SpartanMag.com spoke with the 3-star prospect and he indicated that as of right now he still has not made his choice, but hopes to do so in the near future.

"I have not made my decision yet," he said. "It is tough, I have some great schools to choose from, they all have a lot to offer. I will probably watch the bowl games over the next few days and after them I will call the coaching staff up of the team I am deciding on and let them know."

Michigan State has been actively recruiting Cadogan for quite a while now. Spartan Defensive Coordinator Pat Narduzzi serves as the primary recruiter of Cadogan for Michigan State. The Spartans are recruiting Cadogan as a big-athlete and they believe he has the ability to be a playmaker on both sides of the ball.

Cadogan is currently playing basketball for Camden Catholic High school and the team is off to a good start.

"We are currently 2-0," he said. "We have a good team. We have won 20 games pretty much every year so we want to keep it going. We start 4 seniors and everyone is a good player. We have a real good point guard. We have a guy who is going to Lehigh. We have a center that is being recruited to playi n college to. Everyone contributes to the team."

Cadogan was not tipping his hand as far as which school he is favoring at this point, other than to say he feels like he cannot go wrong with any of them.

One thing Spartsnmag.com asked Cadogan about was if he had ever heard much from Rutgers and if he ever was considering the Scarlet Knights. The fact that Cadogan has 25+ scholarships is an indication that RU would be foolish not to recruit him.

"I never really looked at them much he said. Rutgers is a good school, but I just have always wanted to go away for college. I just felt that going away to school would be a great experience and allow me to meet lots new people. "

One of the reasons why the Spartans have been so diligent in their pursuit of Cadogan is due to his versatility. The Spartans are trying very hard to address the defensive end spot with the class of 201, but they also have not signed a tight end for the class either. A player like Cadogan could contribute at both spots and that could allow him to see the filed earlier than some other recruits if he selects the Spartans.

Spartanmag.com will continue to keep in contact with Cadogan over the coming week or so. At some point he will pick up the phone and make one college Head Coach very excited about the class of 201 and the future of their program with Cadogan as a member.
