Answering Your Michigan State Basketball Questions and Emails...


Hondo do you know when Mark Smith is coming in for his visit to MSU basketball?  I really want this kid.  Thanks Ken M.

He arrives today and will be here until Sunday.

Hondo has MSU been in Mark Smith's home yet?  I have read different reports?  Curtis P.

Yes.  Twice, including yesterday and he will be here today as mentioned above.

Hondo, I loved your videos from Stevens Point with Joey Hauser.  Would it be fair to say that Michigan State has a really good chance at worst or at best have an inside track?  Boyd

Yes, that would be fair.  He is the #1 player in the nation for a reason and it is not over, but MSU is certainly very much in play.

Hondo, I read on the free board that someone said Deyonta Davis was told by NBA people that he was NOT a first round pick.  Can you tell me if that was true?  I thought that I had heard they had told him he was.  Randy

Deyonta himself, Tom Izzo, NBA people and MSU/NBA assistants all told me that he was told he was a first round pick by the NBA.  I even asked off the record and was told he was.  So either you believe them or others, that is your choice.  But that would mean all of those people on and off the record are liars.  They aren't.


Hondo, I saw Kentucky wants Mark Smith now.  Do you think the Spartans are still players for him?  Thanks, Terry Hansen

Yes, the Spartans are certainly still in play and look for more on him this Monday.



Hondo, I have heard you speak a ton about 2019 IN G Keion Brooks.  In fact to quote you I think you said he is the best player in the country for 2019.  How is he developing and what is going on with him? William Nelson

Great question!  He is the best player in the nation for 2019 and I will have a lot about him coming on Monday. Do not miss it!  The Spartans are very much the leader for him and Izzo has been recruiting him since he was in 7th grade.


Hondo, I saw a report that Tom Izzo wants Green Bay grad transfer Kareem Kanter.  What do the Spartans like about him and does that mean they don’t want Mark Smith anymore?  Sid Nelson

MSU is not interested in Kanter at this time.  I do not blame him for wanting to come to MSU, but the mutual desire is NO reciprocating at this point.



There you go everyone.  Another week of your MSU Basketball Q and A in the books.  Make sure to send in your questions for next week.  Simply email them to and put weekly Q and A Basketball in the subject line.
