Tom Izzo is probably in a good mood. The Michigan State head coach reacted to a strong 2023 recruiting class coming to East Lansing.

Michigan State now holds the No.3 recruiting class in the nation by 247 Sports and Rivals. The Spartans received National Letters of Intent from Xavier Booker, Coen Carr, Jeremy Fears Jr. and Gehrig Normand.

“As we get ready to go on our trip to San Diego, nothing is more exciting than having the four players that my staff did such a job recruiting and my players did a good job,” said Izzo via press release. “We got four guys that are “OKG” – Our Kinda Guys. They were guys that get along, they kind of united together, all four of them spent a lot of time talking to each other. Coen Carr was the last one, Gehrig (Normand) from down in Texas, he was one of the early ones. Of course Book (Xavier Booker) down in Indianapolis is the, I guess, marquee in the class, but Jeremy Fears is probably the ringmaster. He’s the Mateen Cleaves, the Magic Johnson of the bunch. He just brings a unity and a confidence. He’s an extroverted personality who I think will fit in here very well.”

Michigan State fans have to be happy with this one. Izzo is bringing in a class with an expectation for another national championship. Let’s see how it shakes out in the future.
