    Michigan State was the only school to call top 2022 prospect Emoni Bates at midnight on Monday, his father Elgin told ZAGSBLOG.

    “If he does go to college they definitely made his choice that much easier,” Bates said.

    Bates is ranked as the No. 1 overall prospect in the Class of 2022 per ESPN.com.

    With the NBA one-and-done rule set to possibly end in 2022 if it’s collectively bargained, the expectation by many is that Bates won’t ever spend a single day on a college campus and will head straight to the NBA that year.

    Michigan State first extended an offer to Bates last July.
