Bluiett takes trip to East Lansing

After decommitting from UCLA, Bluiett visits Michigan State as his recruitment winds down. His father, Reynardo, talks about their experience at MSU, as well as a decision timeframe.

It is a big basketball recruiting week for Michigan State and Indianapolis Park Tudor small forward Trevon Bluiett is one of the reasons why.

The 6-foot-5 senior came up to East Lansing on Wednesday night and stayed through Friday morning.

It was the first visit Bluiett had made to East Lansing since his freshman year, according to his father, Reynardo Bluiett.

"It was a real good visit," the elder Bluiett said. "It was a real good time. Great program and great coaching staff and it was a great practice. It was everything I thought it would be."

The Spartans recently jumped back into the picture with Trevon Bluiett after he decommitted from UCLA.

"After Tre's decommitment from UCLA, we got a call from Coach Fife with some interest," said Reynardo Bluiett. "They came down and watched the open gym. Coach Izzo came down and we got talk with him at the high school and it went from there."

The visit followed as the Bluietts ventured up to MSU.

"Coach Izzo met us Wednesday night and that morning we got up and got a tour of the campus, academic buildings and things like that," he said. "Watched the practice and got to know the staff a little more, as well as the team. The team that he expects to be back and the chances of guys that may be there are some great players with good size.

"The coaching will be the same which is probably the most important thing. It was just all good to see. Overall, good for Trevon to see as well."

Bluiett said his son's recruitment is winding down and it won't be too long before a decision is reached.

He said it should come within a week or two.

"We're still pretty open," he said. "We've been to Memphis and we had a good time there at Memphis. Then Xavier, Butler, obviously Michigan State and been talking with Purdue. It's a small number, but we're still not ready to list them one, two, three."
