Michigan State basketball is reportedly one of three teams recruiting four-star guard Tayshawn Bridges the hardest in the 2024 class.
Tom Izzo has his sights set on the 2023 recruiting class as well as Michigan State basketball’s upcoming season with just 10 scholarship players on the roster, but he’s not forgetting to look ahead a little bit.
In fact, he’s keeping that 2024 recruiting class in mind on the recruiting trail, and his efforts are paying off.
In fact, one of the top guards in the class is on Izzo’s radar and Tayshawn Bridges’ AAU coach says that Michigan State is one of three programs recruiting him the hardest.
Ohio State is becoming a common opponent on the recruiting trail for the Spartans as Izzo and Chris Holtmann are recruiting the same areas in the Midwest and this Wisconsin native could pick between the Buckeyes and Michigan State if it comes down to a Big Ten decision.
Arizona State, too, is a common foe on the recruiting trail and the Sun Devils even landed Enoch Boakye after he decommitted from Michigan State in the 2021 cycle.
Izzo is killing it on the recruiting trail with guards, landing Jaden Akins in 2021, Tre Holloman in 2022, Jeremy Fears for 2023, and now Bridges could be his top 2024 target. He, like Akins, is a combo guard with plenty of athleticism but he’s not quite as big, standing just 6-foot-1.
Bridges is ranked the No. 58 overall prospect, eighth-best combo guard, and No. 2 prospect from Wisconsin in the 2024 class, per the 247Sports Composite.
Let’s hope Izzo can land yet another elite guard here.
