Here’s what the players said on their impending decision and what may go into it:


“It’s going to be a hard decision, one of the toughest decisions of my life. I just want to make sure I do it the right way, and we’ll see what happens.”

“I don’t know, I don’t think there’s something I need to hear. I love it here (East Lansing). They don’t have to tell me anything to bring me back.”


“I’m going to go home, talk to my family, Coach Dantonio, and try to make the best decision for me and my life.”

Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio

“I don’t want to be selfish. I don’t want our program to be selfish. We need to look and see what’s best for them as people.”
