Benenoch decommits from MSU, opens up recruitment

A player whose stock is skyrocketing maybe as much as anyone else’s elected to open up his recruitment again Tuesday.

Former MSU offensive line verbal commit Caleb Benenoch, who recently camped at and received offers from the University of Texas and Oklahoma, decided to keep exploring his options in the his recruitment.

Benenoch, who committed to MSU on March 13, also has received offers from Arkansas, Auburn, Baylor, Oklahoma State Texas A&M and Texas Tech since his commitment to the Spartans. He has received interest from Alabama and Stanford, too.

The Spartans now have six players in their 2013 class, a class which needs offensive linemen to be a key part of it.

Benenoch tweeted MSU running back commit Gerald Holmes on Tuesday, saying that “(he) wasn’t gonna be able to make it (to East Lansing) anytime soon. MSU still in there.” Benenoch clarified that he wasn’t going to able to make it to any camps at Michigan State this summer. He previously said he did not know if he would make up to East Lansing until September.

He later tweeted “the letter I just got from coach staten broke my heart man…”

Holmes and MSU quarterback commit Damion Terry encouraged Benenoch to still join them in East Lansing via their respective Twitter accounts.

Keep in mind, it is a long time until February and signing day — which is why the idea of an early signing period has some support. Check out this take from the LSJ’s Brian Calloway on that thought — and note the player he started off by talking about.
