The national rankings may not reflect it, but future Michigan State point guard Foster Loyer is proving he is one of the nation’s top 2018 prospects week in and week out. The 6-0, 170-pound Loyer led Clarkston (Mich.) High School to the Class A state championship this past season. He jumped right into the travel circuit with the All-Ohio Red team. Through three weekends, All-Ohio Red was 10-2 in Nike EYBL play. And Loyer was a perfect 70 of 70 on free throw attempts.

When asked why he chose Michigan State over the various other schools that offered him a scholarship, or showed interest, Gillison had this to say: “I chose MSU because they showed interest in me since I was a freshman. I love the facilities, campus and also I like the people up in East Lansing. Coach Ken Manning was my dad’s high school strength and conditioning coach so there’s a family connection as well.”

If there is one position where being the “next big thing” takes on a literal meaning, it is on the offensive line. The guys up front set the tone for the team offensively and the lack of consistency last year was a big reason the offense was never able to find a groove last year. This season, while there isn’t a ton of experience up front, there may be some surprising depth.
