One of the biggest questions heading into next season is the health of Jeremy Fears Jr. As you all know by now, Fears suffered a season ending injury around Christmas when he was shot in his leg back in his hometown.

While his season was cut short, that didn’t stop him from spending the rest of the season at Michigan State, supporting and helping his teammates in any way that he could. That’s one of the many reasons why he is one of the best leaders on this team.

Throughout the season, Fears showed us many examples of how well his recovery was coming. From working on his shot at practice to participating in warmups and layup lines before games, Spartan fans were able to watch his health trend in the right direction throughout the second half of the season.

Fast forward to Monday, and Fears posted yet another video online showing off his athleticism and that he is seemingly progressing extremely well in his recovery.

In the video above, you can see Fears not just dunking the ball, but dunking it with ease. After the tragedy that Fears went through, everyone, including Tom Izzo, had no idea if he would be able to play basketball competitively again. However, as the days go on it seems more and more obvious that he will make a full recovery before next season begins.

And what a huge sigh of relief that is, not just for Fears but for the entire team as well. There’s a great chance Fears could be the starting point guard this season, and what an amazing story that would be if it came true. Just imagine the roar from the Breslin Center when Fears’ name is called for the first time in the starting lineup. I get chills just thinking about it.

But for now, we have to wait and see if his recovery continues to go well. However, if things continue to trend as they are, Fears should be good to go for the season, and that is the best news we could’ve ever hoped for.
