18 FL DE Habakkuk “HABA” Baldonado and his mother Paola Franceschelli were in East Lansing for an official visit this past weekend to take an in-depth look at #15 Michigan State.  Baldonado flew up from Florida and his mother came in from Rome, Italy.  Spartan Nation caught up with them prior to their grabbing separate flights back home to get the details of the visit and to hear what each had to say.

Spartan Nation previously reported that Michigan State touched the family by paying to fly Franceschelli in from Italy for the weekend.  She discusses all of that and more in this EXCLUSIVE Spartan Nation Video.
