TE/OT Cole Chewins flips from Miami (Ohio) to Michigan State

In a move that's not exactly shocking, two-star Clarkston (MI) High OT/TE prospect Cole Chewins flipped his commitment from Miami (Ohio) to the in-state Michigan State Spartans on Thursday.

"I would like to thank Miami, Coach Martin, Coach Welsh, and the rest of the Miami staff for the support and opportunity to continue my football career," Chewins tweeted after the flip. "However, I have decided to commit and continue my career at Michigan State University! Go green!"

Standing at 6'7", 225 pounds, Chewins is the 16th recruiting for the Spartans in the Class of 2015. He will grey shirt next year, and won't go on scholarship until the spring of 2016.

Jim Harbaugh, Michigan inquire about Khari Willis

Three-star Jackson (Mich.) Lumen Christi athlete Khari Willis is one of several current commits around the nation that Jim Harbaugh and the new Michigan Wolverines staff have attempted to flip, but the Class of 2015 MSU commit isn't interested in jumping ship in the rivalry.

"I'm SPARTY till the death of me," Willis said in a text to Spartan Tailgate, via 247Sports.

Taking that response into account, the 6'0", 200-pounder is a virtual lock to sign on the dotted line with the Spartans come National Signing Day.
