Trey Kilgore committed to Michigan State on June 25th, 2012 in the Great Theatrical Week of Post Camp Committing. He is the ninth commitment overall and one of two Wide Receivers. Kilgore was sporting offers from Iowa, Boston College, Kentucky and he had the all important Single Redeemable Offer for Any School in the MAC including Cincinnati. They are just the pluckiest little MAC school. Kilgore is currently ranked a 3 star prospect by Rivals, Scout and 247.
We all know 40 times are bullshit. Kilgore’s PR in the 400 this spring was a 50.48. Which is cooking but not top end. That shouldn’t surprise you a whole lot when you see his film. He’s fast, but not holy crapply pants fast.

What’s to love about this kid?
Someone get RichRod on the phone, this kid can run the crap out of the zone read! Kilgore has some nice shake, not DeAnthony Arnett shake, but a quick shoulder shuffle that’ll get him out of a couple open field tackles. He accelerates smoothly and has nice top end speed. After watching some of his throws, I’m left to think that he’d have played QB for one of those MAC teams if he’d have taken their offer. He does a good job looking the ball in even when a sideline or hit is coming up on him.
Prediction for 2013 and Beyond: I have to think that because of the logjam at Wide Receiver this year that Kilgore isn’t likely to see the field in 2013. Once we see the 2012 Wide Receivers it’ll be more apparent whether or not he has a chance to beat out some of them for PT in 2014 and the FUTURE!
Impact on the rest of the class: MSU received a commitment from Jay Harris later that day to also play Wide Receiver. That’s probably it at Wide Receiver.
Also, holy crap. Offensive linemen. Do you like being overweight? Like mostly muscle with a bit of fat? Do you appreciate when Kirk Herbstreit calls you a HogMolly in NCAA football? If you’re a good Offensive Linemen would you object to having people measure your arm length at an NFL combine? Would you feel weird when people dispute whether 32 inch long arms or 33 7/8” inch long arms determine whether or not you can block Julius Peppers?
If none of those things sounds objectionable to you, consider a college career as a Michigan State Offensive Linemen. The perks as previously stated include training table, hanging with Sparty, hitting football players from other schools, etc.
