Tom Izzo & Michigan State call Spartan basketball, "A family," & we traveled to Illinois to meet 17 MSU target Mark Smith's parents! Mark is a terrific young man and that doesn't happen by accident. So when the Smith's graciously invited Spartan Nation into their lovely Edwardsville, IL home we accepted.
They go in depth on their visit, Coach Izzo, the program and so much more. But don't be fooled, Mark may not be their best athlete among three great kids. Maria, the 9th grade starting 3rd baseman on the softball team might be. (I told you I would give you your props Maria!)
