Tom Izzo is hard at work even with an NCAA Tournament appearance coming up against USC on Friday afternoon.
The Michigan State basketball coach been reaching out to potential transfers this week already and he hasn’t slowed down on the recruiting trail for the 2024 class. He has the 2023 class all sewn up with Xavier Booker, Jeremy Fears, Coen Carr, and Gehrig Norman but he’s looking ahead to the next cycle.
There are a number of top targets who could make the 2024 class just as elite as the 2023 cycle and one of them happens to be four-star shooting guard Kur Teng.
According to a plugged-in recruiting insider, Michigan State is in good shape with Teng.
Michigan State basketball in a good spot
Andrew Slater was asked on Twitter where Michigan State stood with the four-star shooting guard from Massachusetts and fans had to like his answer.
This is a great sign because Slater is usually on top of things and if he thinks Izzo is the leader here, Michigan State probably has a really good chance of landing Teng.
The 6-foot-4 guard from the East Coast has offers from Rutgers, Auburn, Cincinnati, Clemson, Iowa, Miami, TCU, Texas A&M, and Washington State, among others. He’s one of the most sought-after prospects in the class and he would fit right in at MSU.
With decent size and shooting touch, Teng would be the prototypical MSU two-guard.
Most recruiting services are high on Teng as he’s ranked the No. 38 prospect in the entire 2024 class and he’s the eighth-best shooting guard, according to the 247Sports Composite. He could be a five-star prospect by the time his recruitment is over.
Other coaches would love to be in Izzo’s shoes.
