Detroit King WR Donnie Corley commits to Michigan State

During the third quarter of the Army All-American game on Saturday afternoon, Detroit King wide receiver Donnie Corley announced that he has committed to Michigan State. 

Corley, considered a 4-star wide receiver, was named the 2015 Hungry Howie’s Mr. Football after a senior season where he recorded 59 catches for 1,403 yards and 16 catches and also tallied 80 tackles and 10 interceptions on the defensive side.

Corley chose Michigan State after announcing in December that his final four college choices were Michigan, Ohio State, Tennessee as well as the Spartans.

Corley will be joining former teammates Tyriq Thompson and Kyonta Stallworth, who recently finished their freeshman season with Michigan State.

Corley told NBC's Louis Johnson shortly after his announcement that he'll have the opportunity to play on offense and defense in college.

"Coach Dantonio told me that I'll be able to play both ways when I go up there," Corley said moments after announcing his commitment. 

Corley helped lead the Crusaders to their first state championship since 2007 and caught the game-winning touchdown with no time left on the clock to beat Lowell in the Division 2 Final.

Corley is expected to enroll early and begin school next week in East Lansing.
