Michigan State was unable to add to its already impressive 2016 recruiting class.
Four-star power forward Taurean Thompson has chosen to play for Syracuse over Michigan State and Seton Hall, according to Syracuse.com’s Mike Waters.
The 6-foot-10 forward from Wolfeboro, N.H., is rated as the No. 75 player nationally in the Class of 2016 and the No. 12 center in the country. He received 20 reported scholarship offers.
Michigan State will simply have to settle for the No. 3 recruiting class in the country, which features 5-star prospects Miles Bridges and Joshua Langford, as well as 4-star commits Cassius Winston and Nick Ward. Overall, Tom Izzo landed four top 50 prospects in its 2016 class. Even without Thompson, that’s quite a haul for the Spartans.
