Michigan State basketball has one of the best 2024 recruiting classes in the country. Currently sitting at No. 13 in the country and No. 3 in the Big Ten, the Spartans have yet another incredible recruiting class coming in. Especially considering most teams ranked above them have more commits than MSU, it really puts into perspective how great this class is.

Michigan State basketball received a major commitment to their 2024 recruiting class, adding four-star guard Jase Richardson. The 6-foot-3, 175-pound guard announced his commitment on ESPN, as the Columbus (Fla.) Explorers took place in the Top Flight Invitational. Richardson announced his commitment at halftime of the fifth place game. The Explorers will participate in the championship game on Oct. 15 at 9:00pm eastern against the Florida Eagles.

Already securing commits from four-star shooting guard Kur Teng and three-star big Jesse McCulloch, Tom Izzo and Co. are moving along nicely with the 2024 Michigan State basketball recruiting class. Continuing to look forward, though, who else are they in pursuit of?

The offseason momentum keeps building for Michigan State and coach Tom Izzo. That much was clear Thursday when the Spartans landed a commitment from Jesse McCulloch, a 6-foot-9 center from Cleveland who is ranked a four-star recruit by 247Sports, ESPN and On3. He’s ranked a three-star by Rivals but ranks as the No. 85 player in the 2024 class, according to 247Sports.

Teng is one of the better shooters in the class and if you want to get really excited about this commitment, Justin Thind of 247Sports even compared his game to Josh Langford’s. That would be a heck of a complementary piece next year to Fears, Coen Carr, Gehrig Normand, and Xavier Booker, assuming the entire 2023 class returns.

“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,” Izzo said in a statement. “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.

Like the 2023 class, the 2024 group might start off slowly for Izzo and Co. as there are zero commitments just yet, but I wouldn’t be shocked to see one during the season or shortly after.

Michigan State basketball offered a 4-star shooting guard in the 2024 class this weekend in Kur Teng. But they also offered another top player in the 2024 class who could be Teng’s running mate on the wing in Tyler Betsey.

Tom Izzo looks intent on making his last chapter with the Spartans a memorable one, and we’ve seen an impressive uptick in his recruiting efforts as he puts together some great classes for the future. Over the weekend, Izzo offered someone who could be another nice addition to those future classes: Kur Teng.

College basketball keeps changing, but Tom Izzo hopes he can keep his program near the top of the sport by offering stability in the face of chaos around him. That was the approach, the Hall of Fame Michigan State coach said, when he assembled one of the highest-rated recruiting classes in the program’s history over this past summer.

Michigan State’s 2023 basketball class finds itself as the No. 2 team in the country according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings after ESPN updated their rankings. It is unlikely that Michigan State adds any more prospects to the class and looks like it will remain a four-man class featuring five-star center Xavier Booker, four-star point guard Jeremy Fears, four-star forward Coen Carr, and four-star forward Gehrig Normand.

The updated 247Sports recruiting rankings hit the internet on Monday and almost every single Michigan State pledge in the class jumped up a number of spots. The only commit who didn’t rise? Xavier Booker who went from No. 3 to No. 6. It’s not a big drop, but it can’t be hated on that much because he’s still so highly touted and Rivals’ updated rankings have him No.

The decently-athletic, sharp-shooting guy from the Fort Worth area makes a comparison to former Spartan Matt McQuaid really easy and the haunting nemesis of Javin DeLaurier’s sleepless nights actually has already connected well with Normand on his recent visit to East Lansing. There are distinct differences between the two players, though, and a bit more to know about Normand.

Coen Carr hails from Stockbridge, Georgia, but has mentioned that he has been a fan of the Oregon Ducks ever since he was eight years old. Nike U actually showed some interest in him but didn’t really follow up on the pursuit. There were a number of other prominent programs recruiting Carr, though, including North Carolina State, UConn, Indiana, Tennessee, and LSU, among many others.
