With Isaac Traudt committing to the University of Virginia on Saturday, Aug. 28, the staff will need to take some time to consider their next move in this recruiting cycle.

Holloman has the physical profile of not only a high-major point guard but even an NBA lead guard. Holloman, at about 6-feet-2-inches, is not overly tall, or physically built, nor is he exceedingly quick.

While I recently examined the current state of the Spartans’ men’s basketball depth-chart, and while I gave an update on recruiting a little over a month ago, a number of developments on the recruiting front and across the college basketball landscape, more generally, lead me to write another recruiting update that also provides some insight into the future team-building strategy that Tom Izzo and his staff appear to have settled on for at least the next couple of years.

In the final 247Sports rankings, all three Michigan State signees in 2021 moved into the top 60. This is the first time this happened as Brooks was in the 60-70 range for a while and Akins was No. 61 before his move to the No. 60 overall spot.
