I think MSU has had a reputation as a place where guards succeed but the way we are using Nix and Payne now has to be attractive to "big" recruits. We are really an "inside-out" team with the post player getting to make the decision on each touch to make a move toward the basket or to pass it out depending on what the defense does. What more could a post player ask?
can i quote jabroni, out of context, to reference this also?
AHHHHH what does it sayyyyyyyyyy
Yesterday he was tweeting about State including:
S/o to my bro @money23green for getting that big ten championship
Some back and forth with Gary Harris too.
Lots of MSU love on that Twitter account.
FWIW, he retweeted me yesterday.
I am not a doctor
Haha me as well.
I like what I see. The first few videos I saw on him he looked a little soft. Granted he was younger, but he looks a lot leaner and quicker in this video.

That is a high school sophomore right now? I think his already high ranking is only going to improve. I can't wait for Basketball recruits to start committing again. Would love to lock this great kid early on.
Liked this video much more than his freshman video...seems to have grown into is body and his coordination is much better
Sounds like he had very impressive weekend at "Swish N Dish". Premium article on another site, but here's a free tweet.
@BSnowScout: Cliff Alexander is really talented, has excellent hands and is looking to dunk EVERYTHING
"The rule of thumb is to avoid Tom Izzo and Michigan State like the plague." - Catspause.com, March 2009.
Louisville and Kansas offered.

Read the comment section... lmao at his mom. "I'm proud of him but I don't have no money to b paying for these ppl stuff."
Cliff Alexander is not playing this weekend with the Mac Irvin Fire. Alexander, a regular with the D Rose All-Stars, loaned his services to the Fire last weekend at the Boo Williams Invitational in Virginia.
Alexander, a 6-foot-9, 240-pound power forward from Chicago Curie High School, is ranked the No. 8 junior-to-be in the country by Rivals.com.
"Tom Izzo watched Cliff every single step of the way last week," Ridley said. "Coach Izzo was at every game, watching Cliff, and you can see why because Cliff can really rebound the ball, and Izzo is a big rebounding guy. Cliff can really sprint the floor, compete and play tough."
MSU, Illinois, DePaul, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri and Tennessee are among a long list of suitors interested in Mr. Alexander.
Cliff Alexander (Chicago/Currie)
2014, PF, 6-8, 225 pounds
Alexander is a no-nonsense (great demeanor) power forward with broad shoulders, long arms and soft hands. He can post up strong and he plays wide, while maneuvering with his back to the basket. His footwork is evolving and he literally over-powered every big man in camp -- usually finishing with a thunderous throw down. Not to mention he can step out and hit the jump shot at the elbow. Elton Brand and Draymond Green come to mind when describing Alexander.
High Interest on Scout..
Not to be a Debbie downer but some guy who does a lot of illionis said, that we are the leader, but if cal comes calling he will verbal to them? How true is that?
Here is the quote
. The others are - and always were - longshots for Illinois. There is a good relationship with big Cliff Alexander, and I suppose you could make up ground there, but it will be tough. Michigan State is in there strong. And I've said this before, but I expect it's a wrap if Kentucky gets involved. John Calipari watched Alexander in Merrilville in April. Hope that answers all of the questions. Klee
That would fucking suck
Since the general perception is that EVERY recruit's first choice is Kentucky and every other suiter is #2, this will be said by someone about every top recruit whether based in fact or is just someone making an assumption.
But u have to kinda believe it. Every inner city kids dream is to make it to the NBA one day and no team is doing that better than Kentucky right now, so it's kinda hard to believe that every big time recruit wont atleast take a very hard look at Kentucky. Kentucky is sending 5 players to the NBA every year even if they didn't do much in college, ala Josh Harrelson, and Daniel Orton.
