Tom Izzo has kicked off his 2023 recruiting class with a bang, landing highly ranked point guard Jeremy Fears Jr. The Spartans beat out Illinois and Michigan to earn the commitment of Fears.

Fears announced his decision on ESPNU during halftime of his high school basketball game.

Fears is originally a native of Joliet, Illinois, but is playing his high school basketball at La Lumiere School in La Porte, Indiana, the same school that former Spartan Jaren Jackson Jr. attended.

According to the 247Sports composite rankings, Fears ranks as the No. 27 overall player in the country and No. 7 point guard, giving him one of the highest 4-star statuses possible. There is a strong possibility he will move to 5-star status in future rankings updates.

Many in the high school basketball and AAU world believe Fears will eventually be a first-round NBA draft pick and a star at the collegiate level.

Fears is the first commit in Michigan State’s 2023 recruiting class and he is certainly a big-time recruiting win that Tom Izzo will look to parlay into more recruiting success in the 2023 class.
