2. Cade Tyson

The former Belmont Bruin would bring size to the guard position, something the Spartans lacked the last few years. At 6-foot-7 and over 200 pounds, Tyson can give you rebounding (his 5.9 rebounds per game would have led the Spartans) but is lethal from three, shooting an astounding 46.5% and can also finish at the rim.

This could push Jaden Akins back to the shooting guard spot and would provide an extra layer of offense should Izzo decide to keep Carson Cooper and Jaxon Kohler as the starting centers.

Tyson's driving to the hoop can also open up the other guards for open threes, something that opponents did the Spartans about 56 times a game (don't have time to fact check that one).

Think of him as a more athletic Joey Hauser who, unbeknownst at the time, was the glue that kept this team together during their Sweet 16 run, apparently.
