It’s been a minute since Michigan State basketball last landed a commitment. Recruiting is much different in the basketball world than it is in football, so classes may only have 1-2 guys and a lot of the time it’s 3-4 at most.
For Michigan State’s 2024 class, it should be somewhere in that 3-4 range, especially if the Spartans can land a couple more priority targets, including Jase Richardson.
So far, Michigan State has four-star shooting guard Kur Teng committed along with three-star big man Jesse McColloch, but many are hoping the four-star legacy recruit joins the fold.
Well, he’s one step closer to doing just that, according to Joe Tipton.
Richardson will announce his college decision on Sunday, Oct. 15, and he’s choosing between MSU, Alabama, and Cincinnati.
As a Spartan fan, you have to love that.
Michigan State basketball could have a guard/wing-heavy class
Right now, the Spartans have one guard and one big committed in the 2024 class and if Richardson joins the fold, he’ll make it two guards and a big. He’s a 6-foot-3 combo guard who can handle the ball but also set up on the wing as an off-ball guard.
And if everything goes as planned, Michigan State will end up with a fourth commitment in the form of five-star small forward Bryson Tucker. He stands 6-foot-6 so he’s a bit of a tweener and will play mostly on the wing, but can also handle the ball.
Richardson is the No. 35 overall recruit and third-best combo guard in the 2024 class and Tom Izzo would love to have the son of Spartan legend Jason Richardson this cycle.
We’ll find out if that happens on Sunday.
