They did just that as Columbus (Ohio) Gahanna's Javon Bess committed to the Spartans.
Bess brings the ability and versatility to play all over for MSU, which adds value to the commitment beyond just his role as a shooting guard.
Bess took his official visit to Michigan State last weekend for Midnight Madness. He visited East Lansing two weeks prior to that after receiving an offer from the Spartans.
He is the second commitment in the 2014 class joining Sunrise Christian Academy (Bel Aire, Kansas) point guard Lourawls Nairn.
