It amazes me that he'd consider going to Michigan State.

Nothing against Michigan State, but Izzo is not known for developing NBA talent or going after "1 & Dones". They've only got 3 players in the NBA and thats ZBO & J-Rich who played there 10+ years ago. The latest is Draymond Greene who is a fringe NBA player at the moment. Im sure a lot of coaches use that in negative recruiting against MSU because Izzo does guarantee all of his 4 year players reach a Final Four, but still thats not the program I'd be going to if I were interested in being a 1 & Done.

Im still surprised he eliminated Washington so early. Did Romar not recruit him hard enough or is he concerned that Washington is close to nabbing 2 Forwards in Jabari Bird & Aaron Gordon?
