Michigan State continues to build a tremendous 2021 class as sharpshooting guard Max Christie opted for the Spartans on Tuesday over Duke.

He joins superstar recruit Emoni Bates, who will reclassify to 2021, and Pierre Brooks, a gifted shooting guard.

Things don't always work out the way you think though. Kentucky had the platoon system when John Calipari had too much talent and when UNC had freshmen Jerry Stackhouse, Rasheed Wallace and Jeff McInnis, Brian Reese grumbled that being a senior at UNC used to mean something.

Even so, those are nicer problems to have than not having much talent to work with. Tom Izzo should have plenty and Michigan State fans, clearly, have a lot to be excited about in the coming years.
