Four-star 2023 power forward Justin McBride called Michigan State basketball a “dream offer” shortly after getting a scholarship from Kansas.

Tom Izzo is building an absolute powerhouse in East Lansing.

After one of the best summers of recruiting in his entire career, the Hall of Fame head coach has his sights set on the future. He built one of the best 2021 classes in the country and the 2022 group isn’t too shabby either, but he’s not going to stop there.

Or at least he shouldn’t.

There’s plenty of talent in 2023 and beyond that could call Michigan State their next home and one has openly admitted that the green and white offering a scholarship would be a dream come true.

Four-star power forward Justin McBride from Oak Hill Academy recently received offers from Kansas and TCU, but there’s one school that has caught his attention that hasn’t extended a scholarship yet: Michigan State.

When he was asked about his dream offer, he was quick to mention Michigan State and what he loves about the program, according to Rob Cassidy of Rivals.

"“Michigan State. I love Michigan State. I love that they kind of use the bigs as guards. The sets they run are nice. It gets players open into, like, the wing area. Plus, I love the coach, Tom Izzo.”"

The 2023 class seems lightyears away, but in reality it’s only a couple of short cycles and McBride is already considered one of the best in the nation. He likes how Michigan State uses bigs and he could be the next star in the post in East Lansing, following the likes of Xavier Tillman, Mady Sissoko and Enoch Boakye.

As previously mentioned, the 6-foot-8, 200-pounder originally from Dallas, Texas, holds a couple of Big 12 offers from Kansas and TCU and he’s ranked the No. 33 overall prospect in the class and sixth-best power forward, per 247Sports.
