It is a rare day when Tim Izzo loses a guy early to the draft, let alone after one year. Per Jeff Goodman:
Michigan State freshman Deyonta Davis will sign with an agent and leave college after one year, the school announces. Potential lottery pick— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) April 12, 2016
As expected, Josh Jackson was never going to stay in-state. MSU at top 3 was simply a window dressing because he's from Michigan. MSU and Michigan never had a chance at Josh Jackson.
This isn't breaking news, but Jordan Morgan and Jon Horford are teammates again, playing for the Canton Charge in the D-League. Their team is in the Eastern Conference finals. Looks like J-Mo just joined the team a week or so ago.
This is relevant because Thornton was down between Duke and Michigan. 5* prospect.
Good news for us Detroit fans. The Pistons beat the Wizards to quality for the playoffs for the first time since 2009.
