Michigan State basketball’s lone commitment in the 2021 class got massive boost in the latest Rivals150 updated rankings.

It’s that time of the offseason when recruiting takes center stage, but the fact that there has been no in-person visitation for months adds a new wrinkle to the plan for Tom Izzo.

Still, he was able to land four-star shooting guard Pierre Brooks after a virtual visit in April and he’s the lone Michigan State commit in the 2021 class.

On Tuesday, however, Rivals150 came out with its latest update and gave a massive boost to Michigan State’s lone pledge. In fact, he went from the No. 109 overall prospect to No. 75, jumping a massive 34 spots in the rankings which was one of the biggest leaps in the update.

This will give Michigan State’s 2021 class a major boost and there will still be room for at least a couple more guys when the group is finalized.

The future of Michigan State basketball

Brooks kicked off the 2021 class with a commitment on April 22 and the Detroit-native will be a major part of the program for years. He joins a program that haas thrived with Detroit-natives such as Cassius Winston and Rocket Watts most recently.

The 6-foot-5, 180-pound shooting guard has the skills to be a star in the system and he could just be the first of a handful of top-75 commits in the 2021 class for the Spartans.

Michigan State’s future is incredibly bright with AJ Hoggard and Mady Sissoko coming in with the 2020 class and Brooks in 2021 and that’s just the start. The rest of the Spartans’ targets in the next class are high-four or five-stars.

Izzo isn’t slowing down any time soon, folks. Much-deserved bump for Brooks.
