Yo, Adreian!

Today was a good day for Spartan basketball fans. Not only did the preseason rankings come out... the Spartans were ranked No. 2 in the country on both polls; but we landed our 4th recruit for next season.
And this is one big fish. Everyone say hello to Adreian Payne (and get ready for "Bring the Payne" puns). Adreian is a 6' 10" beast and rated the 23rd best player in the country by ESPN. Coming from Ohio, he'll add height and NBA-caliber Power Forward talent to our young Spartan class- which just happens to be possibly the best class Izzo has ever brought in at a single time.

The other recruits of course are the electric point guard and soon-to-be-superstar Keith Appling, pure shooter Russell Byrd (Byrd is the Word) and big man Alex Guana. All four are rated between 95-90 by ESPN and, with the exception of Guana, all rank within the top 60 players in the country.

Too soon to make Fab Four t-shirts?
