1. Boakye could join nation’s best class with title aspirations

Outside of having a great relationship with Tom Izzo and the MSU staff and being needed most in East Lansing to bolster the center position and potentially start immediately, Enoch Boakye has to see what’s being formed in the 2021 and 2022 classes.

Let’s just assume for a minute that Emoni Bates reclassifies to the 2021 class, there’s a good chance Boakye follows his footsteps and joins the No. 1 player in the nation, Max Christie (No. 13), Pierre Brooks (No. 68) and Jaden Akins (No. 71). Add in the No. 18 center in the 2022 class who would likely remain a five-star and top-30 prospect in 2021 and you have five prospects committed in the top 75 nationally.

Joining a class like that has to be intriguing, especially when you consider what that means for winning games and titles.

That could mean Michigan State would be a potential No. 1 team in the country again to start the season and potentially the favorite to win the national title.

Most of the time, top recruits pick schools where they can play big minutes but the No. 2 selling point is winning championships. Michigan State will have both of those draws.

Boakye wants to play with the best and that would happen at Michigan State.
