The nation’s top-ranked basketball prospect in the 2022 recruiting class has decided to rethink his options.

Friday evening, Tipton Edits tweeted out that 5-star small forward and the No. 1 overall talent in the cycle Emoni Bates has decommitted from Michigan State. He will re-open his recruitment and explore all of his options.

The Ypsilanti, Michigan native initially committed to the program back in June 2020. He’s projected to be a first-round selection in a future NBA Draft and draws comparisons to Paul George, according to Brandon Jenkins of 247Sports.

Bates has received major offers from Michigan, Kentucky and Florida State in addition to Michigan State. The 6-foot-8 prospect from Ypsi Prep Academy could also play in Europe or take a shot at the NBA G League if he doesn’t want to play at the college level.

Bates was the only player committed to Michigan State’s 2022 recruiting class.
