I mean, you can take it however you want to depending on where he goes. Are you UM guys gonna say you actually didn't want him, if he doesn't choose UM? My uneducated opinion is that he does not choose MSU. Izzo has been watching him since he was in 7th grade. Some of his comments about being considered an MSU-lean because of growing up locally, sound eerily similar to Brian Bowen when he was asked if he was basically an MSU lock (which he vehemently denied) http://www.mlive.com/sports/2016/09/brandon_johns.html Because of this, most think Johns-to-Michigan State is a guarantee He says that's premature. "A lot of people have the expectation that since I'm from Lansing, that I'm going to go to Michigan State," Johns said. "But it's my choice. I'm going to make the decision that's best for me. If I want to get out of the state, then I'm going to go out of state. If I don't want to, then I'll stay in-state. But ultimately, it's up to me. I've got to worry about me." In any case, MSU has Thomas Kithier a 6'9" stretch 4 and now Gabe Brown a 6'8" SF that play similar positions to Johns. They're also still heavily recruiting Joey Hauser 6'9" PF, Marcus Bingham 6'10" PF, and Trevion Williams 6'8" PF/C.
