Michigan State basketball recruit Ryan Davis posted this image of a school official on Twitter on Wednesday: “I’ve heard there are some big changes in the next 2 weeks.
Will be on the lookout!”
The official later clarified that Michigan State was a “top-10” team and not a “rank one” team.
Davis’ tweet, which has more than 7,600 retweets, was the latest to highlight the potential changes for the Spartans’ recruitment, as they begin their quest to land top-ranked players.
The Spartans have been among the hottest targets in the recruiting class of 2020.
The Wolverines have been linked to the likes of Duke’s Jayson Tatum, Xavier’s Lauri Markkanen and Wisconsin’s Lauran Grunwald.
Michigan State has had high expectations for many of its prospects, as well as several other top-tier schools.
This past season, Michigan State had the No. 4 recruiting class nationally and the No 4 class in the Big Ten.
While some of its top prospects were on national signing day, most were not.
Michigan has one of the nation’s best recruiting classes of any school, and there are reasons to believe the Spartans will be even better in 2021.
Michigan is one of only six schools that can be ranked in the top five of both the AP and Coaches Poll.
But while the Wolverines were No. 1 in both polls, they also won the conference championship.
Michigan also has the most talented roster in the country, with a total of 23 players who have played in more than 1,000 games.
With its strong recruiting efforts, Michigan has the depth to add the talent that is coveted by top college players, and that is something that many believe is not a given in the future.
