Michigan State adds to its 2018 class with Rivals150 Aaron Henry

Michigan State completed its 2018 class on Monday as it landed the commitment of Aaron Henry, a 6-foot-5 versatile wing from Indiana. Selecting MSU over his other four finalists, a group consisting of Illinois, Xavier, Butler, and Ohio State, Henry is the perfect mix and match wing-forward that has come to excel within recent years in East Lansing.

Prior to the month of June, Henry had yet to boast one power conference offer. Viewed more as a mid-level recruit heading into his senior summer, Henry put together an excellent month of July on the travel circuit, all of which created for a priority recruitment, one that landed him over 20 power conference offers.

Running on the travel circuit with the Gary Harris Elite travel program and one of the top prospects to not play on a shoe sponsored circuit this summer, Henry should be most valued for his toughness, ability to play much bigger than his listed size around the basket, improved playmaking skills and defensive versatility.

Henry becomes the fifth member of the 2018 class for the Spartans where all five can be found within the Rivals150. Brown becomes the first non-Michigan native to pledge to the Big 10 program this recruiting cycle as he will join Gabe Brown, Marcus Bingham, Thomas Kithier and Foster Loyer in East Lansing next fall, a group that should finish within the top-10 in the 2018 class rankings.
