SAGINAW, MI --The Detroit News released their top 30 players list on Monday and listed in the #25 slot was Jordan Hare from Saginaw Arthur Hill. Hare was only one of two sophomores listed in the top 30.

At 6-foot-9 and with the ability to play out on the perimeter Hare has caught the eye of some of the nation's elite programs, including Michigan State.

He has already received offers from Alabama, USC, Rhode Island, and Stanford while Kansas, Kentucky, Louisville, Memphis, Michigan, and Michigan State are hot on his trail. Hare's recruitment has just taken off and it is way too early in the process for Hare to name any leaders but he definitely has interest in Tom Izzo's team.

"I haven't met Coach Izzo yet but it is obvious he is a great coach," said Hare.

Hare has yet to take any unofficial visits yet but he does plan to visit East Lansing.

"I played at the Izzo shootout and that was the only time I've been to Michigan State. Next summer Coach McMath said we will start taking visits but right now Coach wants to put all my focus on this season," stated Hare.

Hare's season will begin Friday night at home against Mt. Pleasant and another Spartan recruit Trey Zeigler.

Hare will have a much bigger role this year compared to his freshman campaign.

"Last season I was a freshman and a role player, this season Coach McMath is expecting a lot more out of me. First and foremost he wants me to be a leader and lead by example starting in practice. He also said the team needs me to score this season because I have to help take some of the load off of Pookie (Maurice Jones)," said Hare.

Hare is a high major player right now and his potential is unlimited. At 6-9 he plays above the rim and can score in a variety of ways. He is active on the glass and already is one of the state's top shot blockers.

Hare is already being recruited by the nation's elite programs, and Michigan State will have just aS good a shot to land Hare as any other national power.
