Michigan State Pulls Scholarship Offer From Commit Who Attended Ohio State's Friday Night Lights

Gavin Cupp's trip to Ohio State earlier this weekend for the Buckeyes' "Friday Night Lights" recruiting event was costly. 

It is being reported that Cupp, a three-star offensive lineman in the 2016 class committed to Michigan State, is no longer a Spartan. According to a report by, Mark Dantonio pulled Cupp's scholarship offer after he attended FNL in Columbus without telling the Spartans' coaching staff. Cupp had been committed to Michigan State since May. 

Recruits visiting schools they are not committed to is pretty common in the world of college football recruiting, but Cupp's actions apparently crossed the line in the mind of the Spartans' coaching staff. 

Cupp, a 6-foot-4, 270-pound offensive tackle out of Leipsic, Ohio, reportedly does not have a scholarship offer from Ohio State.
