The 6-foot-5, 182-pounder is the 3rd commitment of the 2023 class for the Spartans. On Jan. 6, Izzo and his staff secured a pledge from Overtime Elite point guard Jeremy Fears, the No. 7 PG in the country. Then, on Saturday, Indianapolis power forward Xavier Booker, ranked as the country’s No. 11 player at his position, revealed his own commitment.
The Spartans, who have the No. 6 class in the country, hope to add Devin Royal to the mix on Wednesday. The nation’s No. 14 small forward has Michigan State among his finalists, along with Alabama and Ohio State.
