4. Dre Davis, Seton Hall

Last but certainly not least is Dre Davis from Seton Hall.

Potentially my favorite of the bunch, Davis is another big guard at 6-foot-6 who is able to score in bunches. This past season he averaged 15 points per game en route to Seton Hall's NIT championship. I know it's just the NIT, but he still scored at least 14 points in each game which is extremely good if you ask me. He also averaged 5.9 rebounds per game to once again fill the mold Izzo is looking for by getting a guard who can rebound well.

But the thing that takes Davis to the next level is that he is an above average defender. Playing great defense is a requirement under Izzo, and Dre this past season averaged 1.3 blocks and 0.9 steals per game. Not too shabby. Davis also is a solid 3-point shooter, shooting 41 percent as a junior and 35 percent this past season.

The thing with Davis that I maybe don't necessarily love is that he is a senior, so he only has one year of eligibility remaining. As I mentioned before, I would definitely prefer someone with at least two years of eligibility left, but for someone as good as Davis, I'd let that slide. To top it all off, 247Sports has Dre as the No. 41 player in the portal, again showing just how good he is.

At the end of the day, I don't have a huge preference who Izzo targets in the portal. My top choice would be to get a center, but that's not seeming very realistic since MSU hasn't targeted a center in the portal yet. So going off the type of player Izzo is looking for, these would be more good options for Michigan State basketball to target, that is if Frankie Fidler doesn't end up committing.
