Welcome, young Spartan!
Hell to the yeah! now recruit our Ohio recruits and make this the best recruiting class possible.
Will he grow big enough to play O line?
i only care about spartans --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sqsAJQc-NCY
I'm Jerkin my Durkin
Love his film. I know every HS QB runs well in HS, but I like how well he moves for his size.

Durkin is a tough kid, a leader, and plays for a winning program. Youngstown is to OH football what Flint is for Michigan hoops: gritty ballers.
Love seeing this. Much better QB than Kizer.imho...having seen both play live. Hope it doesnt mean O'Connor is out tho.
I have heard a couple times that we are only taking 1 QB for this class. Durkin looks like a solid prospect whom the coaching staff likes. Since we are only taking the one QB, Dantonio must feel that Durkin is as good or better than O'Connor. Go Green.
But doesn't this work out well if this kid redshirts? Then, in theory, he's still got another year or even two to play a little, watch, and stay ready to come in for injuries.
Welcome to MSU!
His 24/7 profile is kinda interesting.
His timeline is some what confusing.
"4/4/2013: Chris Durkin unofficially visits Northwestern Wildcats for three days."
I thought it was March 28th, 2013.......
I've been Been so focused on basketball.
That dude is legit.
I love this get. This guy is a play maker. Wow. Wish he was on campus now. I suspect he will be a 4 star on rivals soon.
Keeping the sunshiners in check since 2000.
What a blower.
You feeling ok? I agree I am just making sure you're doing alright.
To die in ann arbor is redundant
The O'Connor from TN that would have been in this class. Only taking one so the youngster from TN will be going elsewhere.
I love his size. You have that third and two and he can tebow his way in for the first down. He can take on the linebacker and still get the first down.

I hope he talks shit and lowers the boom
Durkin rated as a 3* by Rivals with a 5.6 rating.
O'Connor who also got an offer was rated a 4* with a 5.8 rating. Think the fact he's at the IMG Academy had anything to do with that?
Looking at what happened last year with Terry's April commit and watching him finish strong makes it look like Dantonio is a straight shooter who trusts his assistants. Durkin and O'Connor probably got the same pitch and O'Connor wanted to continue to look.
Somehow I like the idea of a Youngstown OH player over an IMG player who moved to FL from TN.
A white QB from Ohio who is a low 4* or high 3* I don't believe is allowed to commit anywhere else.
That IS our bag.
Marriage is like flying with kids, if the flight had 500 connections, never ended, Ted Striker were your pilot and you ate the fish.
It's well known the more camps you attend and look good the higher your rating will be just look at Michigan golden boy Shane Morris kept a 5 star ranking until their final ranking of the year although he sucked his Senior year because of how he looked at camps.
All indications are that Durkin stock is rising fast.
