Jeremy Fears committed to Michigan State on January 6. Michigan State targeted and got their man early in the process, the point guard, the extension of the coach on the floor. We all know in college basketball, one of the biggest tasks of coaches is recruiting. So it is only natural that the extension of the coach puts his recruiting hat on as well.“I’m trying to get Xavier Booker and Devin Royal to come with me to Michigan State,” Fears told On3. “I think us three, that trio is hard to beat.”

Michigan State’s 2022 recruiting class is about to go from prospects to players. The Spartans’ class will enroll in East Lansing in the coming weeks to begin their summer conditioning and preparation for the 2022-23 season. That means forward Jaxon Kohler and point guard Tre Holloman will begin their work in East Lansing after months as Spartans signees; the Spartans also added an unranked recruit this month in center Carson Cooper.

It might not provide immediate aid, but the commitment of 6-foot-11 Carson Cooper from IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida, on Sunday could certainly pay dividends in the long run.

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. The number of targets for this recruiting class has remained small over the entire cycle and that has been both positive — landing Tre Holloman in part because he was the only lead guard the staff recruited — and now a negative.

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. But he does have two essential qualities for a high-performing lead guard: he is long and he can change pace terrifically.
