Deyonta Davis commits to Michigan State

Tom Izzo keeps 2015 Muskegon power forward in-state with commitment Wednesday.

Michigan State has been in search for a power forward in the 2014 class, but it picked up a commitment for the 2015 class Wednesday.

Muskegon junior Deyonta Davis committed to the Spartans and elected to stay in-state.

"Deyonta just really like Michigan State," Muskegon coach Keith Guy said. "He really likes Coach (Tom) Izzo and Coach (Dwayne) Stephens and they did an excellent job of recruiting him.

"He felt really comfortable with everything about the school."

The 6-foot-9 Davis found appeal in the MSU program for the position Izzo plans to use him in.

"Coach Izzo told him he can play the stretch power forward position because he is capable of scoring from the perimeter or inside," Guy said.

The fast-rising power forward also gives the Spartans a player with a high ceiling and another year of high school to keep working toward it.

"I believe the sky is the limit for Deyonta," Guy said. "He has tremendous shot blocking ability for a 16-year-old. He can really run the floor and he is just scratching the surface on how good he can be."

The 6-foot-9, 210-pound had offers from Missouri, Xavier, Memphis, Iowa State and Butler in addition to Michigan State.
