Curtis Blackwell Is Making A Difference In His Short Time At Michigan State

Two top recruits.

Newly hired as Director of College Advancement and Performance Camp/Director, Michigan State's Curtis Blackwell has already made his mark in East Lansing, helping the Spartans to pick up two top recruits for 2015 in a 24-hour period. Many people questioned what kind of impact Blackwell would have - it appears a very big one.

Since starting his job on Friday, MSU now has commits from offensive lineman Kyonta Stallworth, who is ranked as the No. 3 prospect in the state by 247sports.com, and quarterback Jayru Campbell, who received offers from Alabama and Notre Dame. 

According to the Lansing State Journal, Blackwell is the co-founder of the Sound Mind Sound Body Football Academy and has worked with over 4,000 kids over the past nine years, helping them both on and off the field. He is also known for his recruiting and is expected to help bring Michigan State Football to a whole new level. It looks like he's off to a great start.
