Jabari Parker to Make an October Decision w/o 5 officials?


Roy Schmidt over at Illinois Prep Bulls-eye is a reputable source and he had this tweet yesterday: "Learned two things yesterday regarding Jabari Parker's recruitment: 1) expect an October decision 2) he may not take all 5 official visits." If Roy is correct on this, that's major news. The earlier talk from Jabari's family has been that they would maximize the recruiting experience with five officials plus in-homes. Hard to say what this means for Duke, MSU, and the rest but I still like Tom Izzo's chances.

DeAnthony Arnett to MSU!


...and only one year too late. MSU has picked up WR DeAnthony Arnett off the transfer wire. The former Saginaw 4-star was considered a likely Spartan last year until he chose Tennessee. He was recently granted a full release from UT in order to pursue a school closer to his ailing father. If the NCAA grants him a hardship waiver, Arnett will be able to play immediately next season for an inexperienced MSU wideout core. This is an exciting addition for MSU (and Andrew Maxwell).

MSU Leads for 2014 Chicago PF Cliff Alexander


Following on a report from Wisconsin's 24/7 site($), Goin BASELINE has this story. Cliff Alexander, a highly coveted post prospect from Chicago, has named MSU his current leader. Though a lot can happen between now and his decision, Coach Izzo is good at keeping these sort of early leads. Alexander is currently the No. 9 sophomore overall on Rivals and No.13 on ESPN.

2012 MI PF Jordan Hare to Rhode Island


This is for the readers who were once clamoring for Jordan Hare to MSU in addition to or over Matt Costello. Hare committed to Rhode Island of the Atlantic 10 Conference this week. Great pick-up for the Rams. Injuries and other things have limited Hare's exposure and he could end up being a defensive force in that conference.

'13 Mishawaka PG Demetrius Jackson to visit on Sept. 24


As he mentioned earlier this summer, Demetrius Jackson will be visiting Michigan State on September 24th. There's some speculation that he'll receive an offer if the visit goes well. Whether he does or not will probably tell us a lot about the likelihood of taking a 2013 point guard. Jackson also recently visited and received an offer from Notre Dame.

Gary Harris to take an official visit to MSU on Nov. 5


It's now being widely reported that Gary Harris will visit MSU on Nov. 5, the last of his three currently scheduled official visits. On Oct. 1 he will be at Purdue and follow that with a visit to Indiana on the 15th. The early signing period starts Nov. 9. What do you think about receiving the last visit? How excited are you (still) about Gary Harris? Discuss away!

Dwaun Anderson Will Not Enroll at MSU this Fall


Rexrode has the story: Still dealing with the recent loss of his mother, Dwaun Anderson has decided to postpone his enrollment as MSU. There's no definitive word yet on when or if Dwaun will join the MSU basketball team. Obviously, everyone in the MSU family is supporting him and giving him time to deal with these important issues in Dwaun's own time. Please bare the sensitivity of this in mind with any of your comments - Josh.

D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera Plans an MSU Visit


D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera, an Indiana combo guard rated a five-star by both Scout and Rivals, is planning an unofficial visit this month and is interested in taking an official as well. In this article from Monday's IndyStar blog, he lists MSU as one of the schools recruiting him the hardest. It doesn't look like he has an offer yet and the question is whether he will get one before Gary Harris makes a decision.

MSU Offers 2013 TX C Dominic Woodson


We figured there would be more post prospects emerging for 2013 and Woodson had one of the best summers of any relative unknown. He received lots of twitter comments like this one and yet another one here. Woodson's mentor is Ray Jackson and that may actually help MSU in this case with an in-state connection. He has interest or offers from numerous Texas schools with Maryland and UConn also trying to get involved.
