The 2016 Michigan State basketball recruiting class stands as one of the greatest recruiting feats Tom Izzo has ever achieved. Earning a top-three ranking behind only Kentucky and Duke, it stands as Izzo’s best overall class according to 247’s rankings (which originated in 2003). 5-star Miles Bridges (12th overall), 5-star Josh Langford (19th overall), 4-star Cassius Winston (31st), and 4-star Nick Ward (42nd) combined forces to become one of the most exciting group of prospects ever under Izzo, and were thereafter known fondly as “The Class.”

The Boakye commitment offers the prospect of Michigan State potentially fielding the best big-man tandem that Izzo and the university have ever seen. With Mady Sissoko, a more-raw, but incredibly talented, long, tall, strong, and hard-working big already in the fold, Enoch Boakye a true five-star talent, possessing a similar physical profile, but with even better footwork and a stunning skill-level for a young man of his size, Michigan State will have the option to play big and to play big effectively, something that few programs can lay claim to in recent years given the challenges of playing a “big” four-man.
