Michigan State basketball signed a top-five recruiting class in 2023, it has a potential top-10 group for 2024, and its 2025 class could be even better than those two.
No, the 2025 class has yet to gain a commitment, but there are a number of five-star prospects and top-50 players on Tom Izzo’s recruiting board. The class is loaded and Izzo is putting in the work to land some big-time players.
There are even a number of top-10 prospects that Izzo is hunting for and one of them will be on campus in the near future.
According to Jake Weingarten, Michigan State will be getting an unofficial visit from five-star combo guard Jalen Haralson a couple of weeks after an Auburn trip and three weeks removed from a trek to Purdue.
Haralson will reportedly be on campus on the weekend of Oct. 13 for a visit. While there’s not a home football game that weekend (MSU plays at Rutgers on Oct. 14), it’ll be a great opportunity for him to check out what campus life is normally like throughout the year. And I’m sure there will be plenty to do in East Lansing.
Haralson would be a massive get for Michigan State basketball
Izzo has been targeting Haralson for a while now and the Fishers, Ind., native who now plays for La Lumiere in La Porte, Ind., is being pursued by some elite programs. Auburn, Duke, Gonzaga, Indiana, Iowa, LSU, Maryland, Michigan, Ohio State, Purdue, TCU, Virginia, and Wisconsin are all looking to land the five-star guard as well.
Haralson is the No. 8 overall prospect in the class and he’s also the second-best combo guard, according to the composite on 247Sports.
In my opinion, Haralson is probably the top guard target for Izzo in 2025. It’s huge to get him on campus in October and make an impression.
