Michigan State has landed a commitment from Aaron Henry, the fifth member of their 2018 recruiting class.

Henry is an Indianapolis native that had a terrific spring and summer, rising up recruiting rankings and vaulting himself into the picture for Big Ten programs.

At 6-foot-5, Henry is a terrific athlete that can guard either forward spot. He is developing as an offensive weapon, but he’s already a finisher at the rim that is capable of making shots from the perimeter.

Michigan State now has five four-star recruits committed to the program. None of them are of the caliber of Miles Bridges or Jaren Jackson, but Tom Izzo’s bread-and-butter tends to be the guys a little lower in the ranks that develop over the course of three or four years into all-league players.

That’s what he has with this class.
