Michigan State Basketball has No. 1 2016 class

Now that five-star wing Miles Bridges has committed to the program, the Michigan State Spartans now have the No. 1 recruiting class for 2016. Evan Daniels of Scout.com reported the update on Twitter.

Michigan State moves to No. 1 in the 2016 class rankings with the addition of Miles Bridges. They now have No. 11, No. 19, No. 28 & No. 27

Bridges joins a class that also includes guard Josh Langford, point man Cassius Winston and center Nick Ward. Needless to say, Michigan State is now in a position to run the table in the Big Ten in the 2016-17 season.

Brian Snow of Scout also offered more:

Michigan State now has the top class in the country. The four-man group, all of which are in the top 50 overall, features two five-star prospects and two-four star prospects. The latest to join in is No. 11 overall Miles Bridges. Bridges, a Flint native, joined the fold to give the Spartans more star power than they have ever had in a class.

That group all in one class is something that hasn’t really been seen in East Lansing at one time. However things might not be done yet. There is still one more native of Michigan that could seriously entertain the Spartans.

The player who could round out this class is Josh Jackson, the No. 2 overall prospect. Now Jackson keeps things very close to the vest within the media, but behind the scenes he has told a few people that if Bridges were to join the already impressive class in East Lansing that he would strongly consider coming as well.

Needless to say, look for the Spartans to seriously be in the national championship conversation for this season, next year and perhaps beyond.

Michigan State opens the 2015-16 season against Conference USA’s Florida Atlantic Owls at the Breslin Center on November 13.
