Taurean Thompson will visit Michigan State before committing

Taurean Thompson talks recruitment, his decision making process and more. Details inside:

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Class of 2016 target Taurean Thompson's recruitment has been dragged out for months now - and it still has a little ways to go.

Thompson will take his fifth and final official visit to Michigan State before deciding upon a school, according to SNY.tv. 

"Of course it's a little frustrating because I want to commit, too," Thompson said. "It means I gotta go on another visit and then I'll commit right after."

He'll decide between Syracuse, Michigan State and Seton Hall, which CuseNation.com reported a few weeks back.

Thompson on his three finalists:

Seton Hall: "Seton Hall is local, my family could come see me play," he said. "Everybody started summer session so I want to get it on. But I gotta be patient. I don't want to make a rush decision because I don't want to regret it in the end."

Syracuse: "They tell me with my length and athleticism I could fill in the gaps and stuff. My family could come see me play. It's a historic school, good program."

Michigan State: "Coach Izzo said he can't wait to get me down to campus and meet me. I don't really know anybody down there. But they're probably going to have a real good team next season, so why not give them a look?"

Thompson added that all three programs have a scholarship available, which has been a topic of discussion regarding Seton Hall. The Pirates are currently at the NCAA limit of 13. 

"I'm good wherever I go. They just said, I'm good, whenever I'm ready."

Thompson will visit Michigan State beginning this Sunday, according to MLive.com.
