Max Christie knew where he wanted to go. It happened to be the one place he took an official visit — the place where he felt wanted and needed. “I just kind of felt like I was at home at Michigan State and that I could pursue my dreams there,” the five-star prospect told the Free Press on Tuesday, shortly after announcing he would join Tom Izzo’s 2021 recruiting class.

You might not find a person on earth who’s loving the year 2020 thus far. But Michigan State basketball fans are already enjoying the heck out of 2021. Or at least its possibilities. Max Christie, among the nation’s top shooting guard recruits for 2021, announced Tuesday afternoon that he’ll play at MSU, perhaps with Emoni Bates, the nation’s top recruit, period, who committed to the Spartans last week

Make it two five-star commitments in two weeks for Michigan State basketball. Elite senior shooting guard Max Christie of Rolling Meadows (Illinois) announced his commitment to the Spartans on Tuesday. The No. 13 overall senior prospect on the 247Sports Composite rankings, Christie joins four-star guard Pierre Brooks II in MSU’s 2021 recruiting class. “It felt like the perfect fit for me,” Christie told 247Sports. “Michigan State is a place I want to be and a place where I feel I can be the best version of myself.”

Bates is a transcended talent whose presence alone automatically would make Michigan State a national championship favorite for the 2022-2023 season (or 2021-2022 season if he reclassifies). So, of course, Michigan State Spartans supporters are ecstatic about what this means for the future of the program.

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. The best high school player in the country told a national audience he loved the Green and White. On the recruiting trail, that will help almost as much as Bates’ silky jumpers. Just ask Izzo, who can’t talk about Bates’ announcement just yet, but who has said in the past that winning doesn’t influence recruiting as much as signing and sending other star recruits to the NBA. The best players in the country look at the path of other players.

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. Both Bates and his father, Elgin, told ESPN’s Jeff Borzello they have not made any decision; however, Sports Illustrated’s Michael Rosenberg reported Monday that Bates will indeed reclassify. “After this year it will tell me everything I need to know,” Bates told ESPN. “I can’t decide on that right now. After this year, if it’s too easy, I might – but if not, I’m probably going to play another year.”

Malik Hall has been referred to as one. Mady Sissoko as well. A.J. Hoggard, too. Quite a few others. And the latest has been Pierre Brooks. All of them are “OKGs” – our kind of guys. Tom Izzo and his coaching staff have adapted the term pretty frequently in recent years. It defines the virtues which they want to see in a potential recruit and everything they look for in a typical Michigan State Spartan basketball player.
