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’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.

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?

Remember the “Tom Izzo is washed” crowd? It’s nearly gone extinct over the past couple of weeks. Five-star big man Xavier Booker committed to Michigan State over Indiana, four-star athletic sharpshooting wing Gehrig Normand picked the Spartans just days after getting an offer, and now four-star freak athlete Coen Carr looks to be well on his way to joining the already-loaded 2023 class. Right now, the class is almost perfectly balanced.

As the 2022-2023 offseason progresses for the Michigan State men’s basketball program, and as the class of 2023 begins to round into shape with the excitement of the recent commitments of Xavier Booker and Gehrig Normand (who join Jeremy Fears Jr.), MSU fans can, at least tentatively, sketch out what the 2023-2024 season will look like, on paper.
