Michigan State signs WR Madaris

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Wide receiver Monty Madaris has signed with Michigan State.

The Spartans say the Cincinnati product signed Thursday morning. Michigan State announced the rest of its recruiting class Wednesday on national signing day.

Michigan State must replace standout wide receivers B.J. Cunningham and Keshawn Martin, who were seniors last season. Coach Mark Dantonio says the 6-foot-2 Madaris is "a big-bodied wide receiver" who reminds him of Cunningham.

Madaris had 56 receptions for 1,137 yards and 16 touchdowns as a high school senior at Archbishop Moeller.
