Madre London chose Michigan State over Nebraska, Wisconsin, and Illinois. He visited all four schools officially this fall, but something stood out about Michigan State to the senior running back.
“When I went up on the visit, I just fell in love as soon as I went up there. Out of the three other schools I went to, I just felt like Michigan State was the best fit for me. It was just like home for me. I just felt like I can be the next big thing at Michigan State from Florida,” he said.
“It was a great experience for me, seeing all the fan base going crazy and the people in the community greeting you no matter who you are. It was just a great experience for me.”
A big factor for the three-star running back was just how comfortable he felt with the Spartans coaching staff.
“I just feel like I had good connections with the coaches, the were really good to me, very honest. The head coach is very down to earth, he doesn’t show favoritism. It’s jus the place I want to be,” he said.
The 6-foot-1, 200-pound back comes from a high school powerhouse program at Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas. That winning tradition is a big reason he sees a good fit for himself at Michigan State.
“They’re a winning program, and I’m coming from a similar program at my school, so I’m used to winning. They run the ball a lot, they like the tough runners and that’s exactly what I am so I feel like I fit right in,” he said.
London is excited to bring his skills up North to Michigan State and sees himself as a great fit in the MSU run-game.
“They’re getting a good running back and I’m looking forward to winning a national championship for them and continue the strong tradition and have a great career there,” he said.
