Michigan State's Important Visitors this Weekend!
Michigan State will be hosting two of the elite prospects in the country this weekend for the 2011 class, in Wayne Blackshear a 6'5 SG from Chicago, IL/Morgan Park and 6'8 Mike Shaw from Chicago DeLa Salle. Both have just left off a visit to Louisville, who has a chance to put together a recruiting class of Blackshear and Shaw, the top PG in the 2011 class nationally, Marquis Teague of Indianapolis Pike, Teague is a 6'1 phenom, and they have already locked up three commitments in 6'10 C Zach Price from Lakewood St. Edward's in Ohio, 6'10 C Michael Chandler and Ryan Taylor a 6'6 beast, both from Lawrence North in Indianapolis. All three of Louisville's commitments are Top 100 players, with Chandler being Top 20.
Blackshear and Shaw are a definite package deal, and Blackshear has been quoted saying Louisville is his leader. Michigan State, will try their best to change that this weekend. Blackshear is a Top 20 talent nationally, and Shaw is a Top 50 player nationally in BOTB's latest rankings. Blackshear and Shaw both play for the Mac Irvin Fire program, coached by Nick Irvin, who will accompany the two on their visit to Michigan State.
Dwaun Anderson, a 6'4 Wing from Suttons Bay High in Michigan will also unofficially visit Michigan State. Anderson is under the radar nationally but he is definitely a high major talent. The ultra athletic wing is a terrific slasher, and he has the potential to be a lock up defender and good scorer at the high major level. Anderson is a Top 5 player in Michigan's loaded 2011 class.
