Michigan State Basketball: 5 Dream Recruiting Scenarios for Spartans in 2014

Will 2014 be Tom Izzo's 'dream' year of recruiting? Maybe.

Tom Izzo certainly lands gems, but he doesn't always get the top-rated recruits on a year-in, year-out basis. 

And that's quite surprising, considering the fact that Izzo-led teams are always in the mix for a Final Four.

But what if he did next year?

What if the recruiting gods planned to pay him back for 2013? Izzo was on the cusp of landing Jabari Parker, the next LeBron James, but it didn't happen. Parker chose Duke and left Izzo scrambling. 

Instead of heading into 2013-14 with a 5-star, can't-miss player such as Parker, Izzo was forced to wait until 2014 for the mother load. 

With Tyus Jones, Jahlil Okafor and Cliff Alexander considering the Spartans, Izzo could have his ideal haul in the near future. As the top three targets for Michigan State, getting commitments from Jones, Okafor and Alexander would be of historical significance for Spartans recruiting. 

It's time to entertain a few ideal scenarios.
