There could not have been a better weekend to bring in the last batch of 2017 recruits to East Lansing with National Signing Day on Wednesday.

Sunday marked a massive day for the future of Michigan State men’s basketball. Cobblestone callouts Plenty of recruits came to campus for the game, but the hubbub mainly surrounded 5-star La Lumiere (La Porte, Ind.) wing Brian “Tugs” Bowen, who took his official visit.

Flanked by teammate Jaren Jackson Jr., a 5-star forward who signed with the Spartans in November, Bowen made his way around the arena for what must have been around the 100th time, but this one had to be the biggest.

Bowen will likely decide between Arizona and Michigan State within the next several days, and his fifth and final official visit served as the Spartans’ chance to woo him one final time.

The Izzone student section knew the drill and chanted “We want Bowen” during the second half. Football games today Bowen responded with a wave as he sat with the Spartans’ four commits: Jackson, 4-star big man Xavier Tillman and 2018 pledges Thomas Kithier and Foster Loyer.

The offer could show that Michigan State doesn’t like its chances with Bowen, but at the same time, Tom Izzo said he would add “maybe even three more” prospects to the 2017 class after signing Jackson and Tillman.

That would leave room, it seems, for Bowen, Elliott and 5-star center Brandon McCoy. Football schedule today It might not be likely, but it’s certainly possible the Spartans could pull off that trio.
