A couple of good nuggets graced Michigan State basketball fans on Tuesday.

We heard about four-star power forward Trent Sisley scheduling an official visit to East Lansing in October and then another top 2025 target also planned a visit.

In fact, around the same time that Sisley's official visit schedule was announced, five-star small forward Jalen Haralson also put Michigan State on his fall itinerary.

Like Sisley, Haralson has trips planned to both Notre Dame and Indiana before an official visit to Michigan State this fall. Sisley also has a trip to Purdue planned. Haralson, however, has just a three-school trip as of now and that's a good sign for Michigan State. It feels like Indiana may be in the lead for the elite in-state prospect but Michigan State is right there.

Tom Izzo has done a really good job of recruiting Haralson and he's been in constant contact with the five-star small forward from La Porte, Ind.

Haralson is ranked the No. 10 prospect in the 2025 class as well as the second-best small forward and No. 1 recruit in the state of Indiana, per the 247Sports Composite.

The 6-foot-6, 210-pound forward from Indiana has plenty of interest from top schools and it's going to be tough to out-recruit the Hoosiers for an in-state kid. Especially one like Haralson who is the best that the Hoosier State has to offer. The Spartans are very much in the race here and it's great to see them get the last official visit.
