Michigan State football coach Mark Dantonio received two verbal commitments from noteworthy recruits Friday. Gerald Owens is a four star running back from West Deptford, New Jersey. He is ranked 80th overall in the nation by 24-7 Sports and the number eight running back. MSU also landed defensive lineman David Beedle from Clarkston. The Spartans now have 12 verbal commitments, approximately half the class that will formally sign next February.
