Well it’s about time. Michigan State has finally landed its first recruit of a crucial 2014 class for Tom Izzo. The 5-11, 180 pound point guard out of Kansas is an important “get” for Izzo who has had multiple losses on the recruiting front in this class prior to today.
Hopefully this recruiting success helps lead to a snowball effect of other recruits leaning towards Michigan State who might lose its top 4 players to the NBA following this season. Seniors Adreian Payne and Keith Appling will definitely be gone as well as Gary Harris with utmost certainty and Branden Dawson as an outside shot of leaving as well.
Other recruit Michigan State is looking at are power forwards Reid Travis, Kevon Looney, and Cliff Alexander. Shooting guard Devin Booker is a target as well. Thankfully Izzo won’t need another Tum Tum after a relieving success on the recruiting front.
