All eyes will be on the decision forthcoming by Detroit Southeastern star Brandan Kearney on November 3rd. Kearney told Scout.com's Dave Telep that Michigan State "was his leader," so it wouldn't be a shock if Kearney pulls the trigger for State.
Still, there is a lot of solid talent left to look at for the Spartans regardless of Kearney's decision.
Players like Country Day's Amir Williams, Akron (OH) St. Vincent-St. Mary's Jakarr Sampson, Huber Heights (OH) Wayne's Markus Crider, Flint Powers Patrick Lucas-Perry, Saginaw's Tommie McCune, Lansing Eastern's LaDontae Henton and Cleveland Catholic Central's Anton "Silky" Grady are just of the few of the players on MSU's short list.
One player who has shot up the Spartans' wish list is Muncie Central shooting guard Jeremiah Davis.
Davis became known to the Spartans on the AAU circuit. He recently visited during Michigan State's knockout win over Michigan and came away impressed. He was unable to watch MSU's Midnight Madness but still likes what he sees in the Spartans.
"I didn't get to go to Midnight Madness, but I went a couple of weeks ago to visit up there. My little brother had a football game and I wanted to support him so I wasn't able to go anywhere afterwards," said Davis.
How about the atmosphere during the Michigan week game? "I loved it, it was a really good experience."
Davis explained how he went from off the radar to getting an MSU offer.
"They've been recruiting me since this summer. They found out about me in the AAU circuit around the end of July," he said.
"I got to talk to the players and the coaches a little bit and we went to the game. They offered me a scholarship when I visited. Coach took me into his office and talked to me. I was with my dad and my friend who goes to Saginaw Valley and they offered me a scholarship. I just told them thanks a lot. I did a little tour of the campus afterwards with Coach Montgomery and then we went on our way.
So where does Davis stand when it comes to actually pulling the trigger on a commitment?
"I'm open in the recruiting process and anything can happen but when everything lines up, that's when I'll make my decision. It could be tomorrow, it could be a year from now."
Still, the four-star guard who reports ten offers from schools such as Kentucky, Arizona, Indiana, Kansas, Florida, Tennessee and of course Michigan State likes MSU a lot and it is close enough to home that it is a legitimate contender for his services.
