Recruiting Radar: Wide Receivers

Michigan State will graduate 4 senior wide receivers after the 2011 season 3 of which are starters. That means that not only will the Spartans have to sign a couple of quality players to replenish depth, but it is very possible that one of them will be asked to step in and contribute right away.
