Michigan State basketball has one of the best recruiting classes in the nation for 2023 with Xavier Booker leading the way along with Coen Carr, Jeremy Fears, and Gehrig Normand.
But Tom Izzo is looking to fill his 2024 class and it might end up being just as good.
Izzo is recruiting hard at the national level and he’s eyeing four-star shooting guard Kur Teng from Haverhill, Mass., among a few other top prospects.
It’s hard to really gauge where all of these prospects stand this early in the process, but a major selling point would have to be playing for a national title with the 2023 recruiting class set to be sophomore when these guys get to campus.
Teng has apparently taken notice and likes what he sees from the Spartans’ program.
Andrew Slater believes Michigan State basketball leads
Andrew Slater, Pro Insight’s director of scouting and a really plugged-in source when it comes to the recruiting ranks, was asked on Twitter if he believed Teng would be a Spartans.
Slater, who even claimed he’s not a recruiting expert, said that he would bet on Michigan State to land the four-star from the East Coast.
This would be a fantastic start for the Spartans’ 2024 class which currently sits at zero commits, but he’s not the only prospect from the class who’s high on Izzo’s program.
Teng is ranked the No. 36 overall prospect and eighth-best shooting guard, according to the composite. He’d join a potential future lineup with Fears at the point, Carr and/or Normand on the wing, and potentially Booker in the post, but I do think Xavier is a one-and-done.
Michigan State just offered Teng back on Oct. 3 and he took a visit just a couple of weeks later.
