Emoni Bates may never take a shot for Michigan State. His commitment to the Spartans’ basketball program Monday was a big win for Tom Izzo anyway.

Bates could reclassify and forego his senior season in high school to enter college a year early, and join guard Pierre Brooks II as part of the Spartans’ 2021 class.

After this year, if it’s too easy, I might – but if not, I’m probably going to play another year.”
