Freshmen Report for MSU Preseason Football Camp

EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Third-year Michigan State head coach Nick Saban welcomed 30 freshmen to campus for physicals Friday as the Spartans prepare to open preseason football camp. The newcomers will hit the practice field for the first time Saturday at 9:30 a.m.

Coach Saban announced that the incoming freshman class includes two NCAA partial qualifiers -- defensive back Renaldo Hill (Detroit) and tight end Ivory McCoy (Chicago). Under NCAA rules, both Hill and McCoy are permitted to practice but they are not eligible for game competition.
