No chance he plays. Kid is an incredible talent and will make some serious cash in the G league.

As a fan of college hoops more than the NBA, I hope this guy gets to Michigan State. It would make them awfully good and a pain to try beating, but I grow tired of all the d riding Duke and Kentucky get when top specs go there. Michigan State isn't ever going to be someone's underdog (like Oklahoma State, Washington, LSU or whatever other non-traditional power gets a superstar frosh) but they rarely bring in the 'One-and-Done' types.

I've always found Izzo to be a bit overrated as a coach, but I actually think he's a good fit for a kid like this. I tend to think he's not going to baby the kid or give him any special treatment, which, for a kid who has been hyped as the best prospect since LeBron, I'd be surprised if there isn't some entitlement creeping in either from him or his 'camp'.
