Michigan State Basketball: Spartans' Odds to Land Each Top Recruiting Target

Recruiting top-tier athletes isn't the problem for Michigan State Spartans coach Tom Izzo. 

However, convincing them to play in East Lansing seems to be. 

At this point, it doesn't look like the Spartans, who have been to six Final Fours under Izzo, are clear favorites to claim 2014 prime-timers Cliff Alexander, Jahlil Okafor and Tyus Jones. 

Jones and Okafor want to play together. That could be tricky. 

Alexander, according to a recent report from MLive.com's Diamond Leung, isn't planning to officially visit Michigan State. 

Securing package players is a test for any coach. Only Jones and Okafor know where they'll go to college. If 247Sports.com's predictions hold true, both Jones and Okafor will commit to Duke, which beat Michigan State in the 2013 Sweet 16.
