Matt Trannon Picks Michigan State

To say that 6-6, 200 pound Matthew Trannon is an athlete deluxe would be, well, an understatement.
Trannon, who is being coveted by a number of high Division I programs this summer for both his football and basketball prowess, committed to Michigan State, according to Matt's family. It's likely that Trannon will end up starting for both the Spartan football and basketball programs.
At the start of the summer, Trannon had a huge list of Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Penn State, Purdue, Wisconsin, Clemson, Duke, Florida State, North Carolina, N.C. State, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU, Tennessee and Vanderbilt.
He gradually cut this list down to Michigan and Michigan State.
Last year on the gridiron, he amassed 897 yards as a wide receiver thanks in part to his blistering 4.4 speed in the 40-yard dash. He also hauled down in the neighborhood of 13-14 touchdowns.
In basketball, the high wire act recorded 18 points, 11 rebounds, five assists, three steals and two blocked shots per game at Flint Northern H.S. in Flint, Mich.
Trannon said that he has a 2.8 GPA and scored an 18 on the ACT.
