The three 2025 Michigan State basketball signees have seen some movement in the On3 rankings update this week.

Michigan State basketball has one of the best 2024 recruiting classes in the country. Currently sitting at No. 13 in the country and No. 3 in the Big Ten, the Spartans have yet another incredible recruiting class coming in. Especially considering most teams ranked above them have more commits than MSU, it really puts into perspective how great this class is.

The recruiting site On3 just released a rankings update for the 2024 class, and some Spartans, and maybe a future five-star commit, saw movement in their rankings.

Spartan signees fall slightly in their rankings

Two of the three Michigan State signees saw their rankings decrease a little bit. The Spartans’ highest ranked commit, four-star Jase Richardson, saw his ranking drop a couple spots from No. 30 to No. 34. Similarly to Richardson, four-star Kur Teng saw his ranking go from No. 47 to No. 49.

On paper, this might be a little upsetting because you never want to see your recruits drop in the rankings. But this small of a drop is nothing to be too concerned about. When players drop a couple spots it’s usually because other players that were below them moved up significantly. So this wasn’t On3 moving Spartan commits down, it was On3 moving other players up.

The Spartans’ third commit, three-star Jesse McCulloch, is not ranked on On3. It only ranks the top 150 players in the class, so it’s unknown exactly where he is on their list. And 247Sports, on the other hand, has McCulloch as the No. 133 player in the country, so he is a very good recruit as well.

Five-star Bryson Tucker

There is one recruit still out there for Tom Izzo in the 2024 class that he is pushing hard for. Five-star Bryson Tucker is a small forward from Baltimore, Md., and is one of the best players in the country. Tucker saw his ranking increase from No. 16 to No. 13, cementing himself as a clear five-star.

Bryson has yet to commit to a school yet, but he is down to three choices. Tucker is deciding between MSU and Kansas in the college ranks, as well as the NBA’s G-League Ignite. No predictions have been made for Tucker yet and there is still no timeline for a decision.

If Bryson were to commit to Michigan State, he would skyrocket the Spartans’ 2024 class in the team rankings. It would send the Spartans’ class up to No. 4 in the country and No. 2 in the Big Ten.

Tucker likely will make a decision soon as final signing day for the 2024 basketball class is right around the corner. Fingers crossed because he would be a massive addition to the program.
