He may still be a duke lean but there is buzz out there about other schools as well now (OSU and UK).
We need to get Okafor on campus, I think we are strong with tyus.
Like what I see from him athletically and intensity wise.... But his youtube videos don't display much advanced skill. Lots of angry dunking and huge blocks. Wish we could see a little more of his repertoire. Looks like a promising young player though
I don't follow recruiting much, so there may be something I simply don't know, but Rivals page on Tyus Jones doesn't even list Michigan State as a potential landing spot.
Jones has said multiple times that MSU remains on his list.
Anyone. Anyplace. Anytime.
Rexrode also was 100% sure that Jabari Parker was going to pick us. I have great respect for Rexrode but after what happened with Jabari Parker, I don't believe and get excited until the recruit actually commits to us.
Pretty much this
Nothing matters until the recruit commits
I don't recall Rexrode ever saying he was 100% about any recruit. He seemed pretty confident about Parker going green, but then again, so we're a lot of people.
Well, I want him badly for 2013. Any chance we could get him to speed things up a bit?

I hope Cliff commits soon. He is from Chicago and I'm sure that him and Okafor at least know each other. It can only help to have a consensus top 10 player locked up in hopes of getting Okafor and Jones. I haven't heard anything lately about Izzo going out to watch Tyus so I'm not sure if he has lost some hope, just been busy, or doesn't want to put all his eggs in one basket like with Jabari.
You are 100% wrong on that statement. Rexrode said his GUESS was MSU several times and emphasized it was just a guess based on Izzo being all in. Rexrode is as solid as it gets.
No more getting excited for a recruit until they sign. jabari killed it for me.
Rexrode said this earlier in Parker's recruitment. As the decision day approached, he backed off his 100% talk.
I guess that means there is no such thing as a sure thing in recruiting. Who knew?
At one time ( before Duke offer) We were considered the leaders for Jones. I figured it would come down to us and Duke. I think the postseason will have an effect on what happens with the recruits we are going after for 2014 if we make a good run and some of the other big names fizzle it could only help our chances.
Does anyone else automatically downvote NySparty posts?
I doubt the postseason has any impact
Duke lost to Lehigh in the round of 64 last year and still got Jabari
Blatantly false. Rexrode offered guesses when pressed. He never once said he was 100% sure. Bullshit.
My bad, i probably mixed him up with someone else sorry. Still gotta love having an angry dunker on the team :)
The first time MSU basketball aired in France the French surrendered to Tom Izzo just to be safe.
We are different than Duke. As previously mentioned Duke has a lot of stuff to sell recruits on. ( 4 championships, lots of NBA players, USA basketball, etc) Izzo has a lot of postseason success already but a good run with our players showing up and being talked about as NBA prospects and another possible final four or farther.... helps our chances imho.
Wrong. Where the f do you guys come up with this garbage?
He was in Minnesota to see jones open the season in December. It is really hard to get out and see the out-of-state guys once conference play starts.
He's been to Chicago a few times, Milwaukee, St Louis, Minnesota, and down south twice (Parker and Booker). That's a ton of travel from December on. Will be interesting to see who Izzo prioritizes during the spring aau season.
You will end up with Peyronie’s Disease at this rate.
Cliff, Okafor and Tyus will get big time minutes as soon as they get to EL if they decide to come here.
I'd bet infinity internet chicken sandwich that Tyus and Okafor will end up in a blue jersey
I see Cliff as a slightly less skilled Amare Stoudamire type player. Great athlete and rebounder at the 4 spot. The 2014 class I see Sam Logwood committing eventually, athletic wing from Indiana who was just at the Indiana game and lists us as favorite. Also the point guard I could see either being AJ Turner or Tyler Ulis if the staff offers. Wouldn't be mad with a class of Logwood, Looney(dreaming), Turner and big Cliff.
