In fact, the staff stopped in to see four-star small forward Hameir Wright on Wednesday. He’s one of the top small forwards in the country and could be a difference-maker at the three position once he reaches the college ranks.
Wright received an offer from Izzo back in January and, according to 247Sports, the Spartans were the last to extend a scholarship as well as visit him.
The 6-foot-7, 205-pound small forward from Albany, N.Y., was named the New York Gatorade Player of the Year in 2017 has been blowing up. He’s now ranked the No. 29 recruit in the country, according to 247Sports, as well as the seventh-best small forward.
Izzo is looking to add wings to his next two classes after going guard-heavy in 2016 and post-heavy in 2017. Wright would fit the description perfectly and he can do just about everything. The Hall of Fame head coach loves players who aren’t one-dimensional and Wright is the kind of kid who could thrive in the MSU system.
Syracuse and Villanova may be the favorites for him due to proximity to home, but he’s also received offers from Miami, Connecticut, Georgetown, Maryland, SMU and West Virginia. Can the Spartans reel in the New York-native?
