Earlier this month, the Michigan State Spartans put out a key offer in the 2022 recruiting cycle. Tom Izzo and his staff decided to offer 2022 prospect Emoni Bates.
Just spoke with 15-year-old Emoni Bates, the No. 1 player in the class of 2022. He said in addition to Michigan State officially offering a scholarship this morning, Florida State is the only other major program to offer him a scholarship so far.— Matt Norlander (@MattNorlander) July 12, 2019
Bates comes out of Ypsilanti, Michigan and is currently unrated by 247Sports. He is currently listed as 6-foot-8 and 200 pounds by the recruiting site.
Along with Michigan State, Christie also has offers from DePaul and Florida State among others. There are currently two Crystal Ball predictions for him, with one to Kentucky and one to the Spartans. Bates is considered an elite prospect by many in the Michigan area and many think he could go straight to the NBA if the one-and-done system ends before his cycle.
