The No. 3-ranked Michigan State football team looked to continue the "ripple effect'' of success that coach Mark Dantonio believes its carrying into the offseason right onto the recruiting trail.

The Spartans, coming off a historic 13-1 season that saw them become the first Big Ten team in history defeat nine league foes by double digits in the same season, have started their offseason workouts.

Dantonio is also keeping one eye on the future, sending his Michigan State assistants out on the road for what has become one of the most aggressive recruiting campaigns in school history.

The Spartans have 20 verbal commitments in the Class of 2014 and might yet add two more, but Michigan State's focus now is largely on the Class of 2015 and 2016.

The Spartans hosted several unofficial visitors during their No. 3-ranked basketball team's 71-66 victory over Indiana on Tuesday night at Breslin Center.
