Larry Lage of the AP had a cool assignment recently – he tagged along with Michigan State coach Tom Izzo on a quick 6-hour recruiting trip. The recruits though, weren’t named. Let’s try and guess the recruit given these facts:
1) The recruiting trip was to Chicago.
2) They flew to Gary, Indiana, and then drove to “a Chicago arena.”
3) “Izzo made eye contact with the recruits, both of whom nodded their heads as if to say hello without saying a word, during pregame warm-ups in non-verbal exchanges that abided by the NCAA’s strict rules during evaluation periods.”
So we’re looking at teammates in Chicago … boom: Jabari Parker (No. 2 Rivals player in the Class of 2013) and Kendrick Nunn (No. 18 Rivals player in the Class of 2013). Too easy? [AP]
