Michigan State Secures Nation-Leading 5th 2018 Basketball Recruit
Michigan State basketball has added another player to their 2018 recruiting class on Monday when they secured the verbal commitment of small forward Aaron Henry.
Henry is the fifth commitment to MSU hoops along side Marcus Bingham Jr., Foster Loyer, Gabe Brown, and Thomas Kithier. That class of players is good for fourth currently on 247Sports recruiting rankings behind Arizona, USC and Indiana.
Henry is a 6-5 200 pound small forward from Ben Davis High School in Indianapolis and played for a Gary Harris sponsored team on the AAU circuit. Henry averaged 14.2 points and 6.6 rebounds per game his junior season and made 42% of his three-pointers.
Henry's commitment actually puts Michigan State over the scholarship limit for the 2018 season. However, with the likely departure of Miles Bridges to the NBA and possible departures from both Jaren Jackson Jr. and Nick Ward (who tested the NBA Draft waters last offseason) the scholarship limit should not be an issue this time next year.
