Michigan State’s biggest surprise landing of the day on Wednesday may very well be Keon Coleman and right now, I’m optimistic that he’ll be a Spartan.

It’s been an interesting ride for Coleman during the recruiting process as he committed to Kansas over the summer, eliminating the Spartans from his top three after naming them in his top six. He also valued Oklahoma, Auburn and Ole Miss and he recently named Michigan State in his top schools again — he decommitted from Kansas this fall.

Coleman is an intriguing prospect because not only is he a four-star receiver and a potential instant impact player for Mel Tucker and the football program, but he’s also an impressive basketball recruit. He wants to play both sports at the next level and Tom Izzo would love to have him.

The four-star receiver has made headlines this offseason for scoring in bunches on the basketball court, even dropping 63 points in a game in January. Izzo needs more scorers, as you can tell from this disappointing season.

I’m feeling good about the No. 42 receiver in the country picking the Spartans on signing day, but I wouldn’t count out a program like Oklahoma here. Although Tulane seems to be surging.

Prediction: Michigan State
