Douglas, a six-foot four-inch 282 pound, three-star offensive lineman out of Saline high school located in Saline, Michigan chose the Spartans over East Carolina, Eastern Michigan, and multiple other MAC and Ivy League offers. He is also ranked as the 45th best player in the state of Michigan by 247sports.com. Douglas described himself as a ” Very aggressive player and a leader on the field.”
Douglas picked up his offer from Michigan State on June 17 while attending the MSU camp and committed just two days later.
